    With stock rom call metro from another phone and tell them you need to program.

    Weird. You connected to it fine in lgnpst didn't you? When you chose you com and click ok does that box disappear?

    Try using a different usb port, or even rebooting your pc...

    Call them on it and pretend your on another phone and write down all the numbers they give you. you start with ##626* and enter 587846(i think) and it opens program menu, first number is supposed to be your phone number, second number is the one you need, just write it all down and pretend it all worked to the metro agent and hang up and go thru it yourself.

    I love how they assume people are to stupid to do this and you have to lie to them to get your numbers, lol.

    There isn't really any kinks to cm7, don't be afraid. Besides you now have your MIN and the know-how to completely restore. Just make sure your data is working before you switch away from the stock rom again.

    I don't know what messed up your phone in the first place but it wasn't cm7, my guess is a bad recovery.

    Just turn off wifi and launch your browser, if the 1x icon pops up top then you have data, no icon, no data and the page wont load.

    I would use GNM or CWM. Just don't use Rom Manager to install CWM.

    on first boot menu>cyanogensettings>display turn off screen on/off animations. Any other lag on unlock can be mostly fixed with a live wallpaper. Reppards rom has both of these by default.

    Did you confirm in about phone that meid is zeroed?

    Also it sounds like you might not be entering the commands properly. the meid needs to look like 0xA000043345746A

    you cant write esn, thats leftover in the instructions fro another device I believe.

    This should be alright... is your spc still 000000?
