Question about changing roms

    I've got a rooted droid x running Pookey's cyanogen mod7. But I've seen a few issues and might like to try other roms to see if they are resolved. For example I don't have a menu item for setup / activation of a hotspot.

    My question is, when you flash a new rom do you loose your plan minutes?

    I can well imagine that depends on the carrier. I just signed up with Page Plus Wireless "Talk n Text 1200" plan, as a pay as you go prepaid plan.

    If I install a new rom will I loose my plan minutes when I activate the phone under the new rom? I presume I'll have to activate the phone each time a rom is installed, right?

    I haven't with TMO. I have a Bring your own device plan. Rooted Nexus S running CM.If you are using anyone else, especially CDMA carrier - you might look in Sprint, Verizon, Boost, Cricket forums.

    TMO? Nobody here knows that one. Could that be T MObile?

    Why would you need to reactivate the phone? Isn't the phone's serial (IMEI? Is that it?) tied to the account? I imagine flashing a new ROM would be the same as if you were simply doing a factory reset.

    Thx Mayhem. That makes total sense. I should've thought of that.
