Default Sister phone

Looks like Verizon is getting a version of the MS870:

LG VS870 heads to FCC in Verizon flavor, could be an Escape with wireless charging

Here is the LG page for the unbranded phone:
LG Escape P870 | LG USA

Their support page lists an AT&T manual:
LG P870 Support: Find Manuals & Warranty Info | LG USA

If this isn't 205 already. (Edit: heh only by a couple of months)

Still nothing on LG's servers for any files yet.


But I did get a working IMEI # for when LG finally uploads their firmware

I love trial and error
