Over a year ago (Aug 2011) , I was using a Motorola W385 Flip Phone (is that my donor?) on the Boostmobile Network. A colleague told me I should get a rooted Sprint HTC Evo 4g phone, so I did. I purchased it from a shop and it worked fine for almost a year, when one night my phone rang and a Boost Rep said my phone was flagged for errors or something like that and at that point I couldn't make calls. After talking with him, he did something, and the phone worked again. But now, about 4 months since, Nov 13, 2012, I was taking a train into NYC, and when I got off the train I couldn't make calls or texts, and some voice recording said some error. I thought it had something to do with my reception around the buildings or something, but later when I was out of the city it was still the same. When I googled the error (from my EVO), I read several searches that said to go online to my boost acct and choose 'update handset', enter my original (again, is this the donor) purchased W385 ESN/MEID. At this point all things were working except text and talk. So I went to my acct, and saw that my current phone was listed as SCP6760A BC, and the ESN/MEID was some number that was long but was not anywhere matching the one on my phone sticker by the battery in the EVO. What is the deal with that? Then I looked at the sticker behind my battery on the W385 and entered MEID#, but that wouldn't let me move to next step because number wasn't long enough. I looked at the current phone activated and noticed the DEC# on the W385 was same length and similar, so I plugged that in, and then continued to activate my W385 with the DEC#. So the W385 worked fine, EVO was deactivated, and I waited about an hour, then reversed the process, and plugged in the same MEID that was there when my EVO was working, and activated it. I got a text and email from Boost saying activation added the phone back, though they called it, again, the same BOOST SCP6760 CLAMSHELL w/serial number. I turned on the phone, everything seemed back to normal, calls, texts, all functions, etc... except, now I can't connect to the internet unless I'm on a wifi network. And, when I turn wifi off, I get bombarded with the "Error Code 67. Unable to establish wireless data connection." Now, I am not familiar with all this stuff, I work better by watching than I do reading up on things. Is there an easy fix? I live in California, and the place I got the phone is in Atlanta, GA, so I can't take it there. I would really love to learn how to do this, but when I start reading up on it, there is a lot of stuff that I have no clue what anyone is talking about, and to make matters worse, I've got A.D.D., so taking the time to learn this is exactly why I'm here now. I see people being sent to All things Root, or something like that... but like I said, I just can't seem to grasp it at this point. Again, I'm looking for either a step-by-step that is more specific to my phone; OR, should I just go to another shop and ask someone else to do it for me. I love this whole idea of flashing and rooting, and if I could do it, I would love to give this gift to the world. I just hope that someone here can help me out and tell me what the problem is. I tried the dialpad ##MSL# thing, but nothing happened at all. I used the MSL that was listed as the current phone MSL that was my EVO 4g, and I tried a MSL program that gave me a different, all zero's, but again the dial pad just did nothing, I couldn't use it or type, except use the back/return button and then it would go back to the regular. I tried it a few times, and it just seemed like it was doing nothing, the keypad did not respond or anything (except back button), and even let it sit for about 15 min, thinking maybe it was working, but nothing. Sorry to be so long, but I figured I'd give as much info, and really appreciate anyone taking the time to help me.
