Hi all, was hoping to get a little help here from people more experienced. I am currently a Ting customer (Ting is a CDMA Sprint MVNO) and love it. I have two phones, an old Optimus S and an LG Marquee. My girlfriend recently retired her DINC 2 and switched to Ting (broken charge port, which I later replaced). Ting welcomes flashed phones on their network (but obviously cant help with the flashing). Whle the Marquee and Dinc2 have similar specs, the Dinc2 runs much better. I have been contemplating flashing it to Ting for a while now, using the Optimus S as a donor phone. However, I just broke the screen on my Marquee, so that is a possible donor as well (I did not want to risk bricking my daily driver, but I can always activate the opti). I have rooted many phones, and played with alternate ROMS. I run a PC repair business and am very tech savvy, however I have never flashed a phone before, and was wondering about the following questions if anybody here can help. Should the Dinc2 be rooted first? I know I need the ESN/MEID, HA, and AAA from the donor phone, is there anything else? Verizon and Sprint apply PRL updates differently. I assume this means I will have to find a correct PRL online or get it from the donor phone, correct? Should the donor phone be active on Ting before the flash, or should I activate that MEID after the flash? Any other tips, links, rants or abuse you can think of! Thanks for any assist! I have seen info on flashing to Boost, which is Sprint of course, so I know it is feasible, but the info seems sparse and lacking, so I was hoping for input before making the plunge.
