I'm about to make the dive again and see what happens. Going to try to just start it up with any old .prl and not do *228 and try to make a call. But I know what's going to happen. I'm going to hear that hyper-fast busy signal sound, like it's not connected. I'm just going to turn off the phone that's *currently* activated on the Cricket number, then go through the PST process in ##778, put a .prl in place, menu > Committ Modifications > Reboot... and what you're saying is, it should *just work* at this point. I've been to that point before and it just *doesn't*. We'll see this time I guess? (fwiw, I'm trying 1042 first).
