    I'm trying to find my MSL for my Moto Triumph, thinking about trying the PRL swap to hopefully get better signal strength for my data/GPS. Stupid GPS can't find its way out of a clear unobstructed signal path on this phone!

    When I go to this page:


    it just terminates in a 118 error, timed out, webpage not available. It appears VM has most likely removed or disabled the page so people can't get their MSL's to screw around with their phones.

    I got alogcat, set it to filter for sec_code, then dialed ##33284##, phone asks for your MSL. Suggestions say try 000000, but this kicks you out and reboots the phone. Tried again but just cancel, don't try to enter code. Then switch back to alogcat, and the report screen now shows:

    V/QC_NV_ITEMS( 976): sec_code xxx726 (I'm hiding the first 3 digits)

    Is this my MSL code, in case I screw things up and need to re-enter it to reset my phone? I'm a noob at this and haven't messed with PRL swaps yet, but I want to be sure I'm not going to brick my phone.

    Basically I'm trying to get better GPS and data reception (sometimes I can't get it to connect anywhere, even though a GPS test app shows great sat signal reception in view. Takes friggin' 4ever, makes navigation useless.

    new easy method for obtaining MSL code:
    Download and install aLogcat (free) from the Android Market.
    Run aLogcat and set it to filter for "sec_code"
    Go to your Phone apk and dial ##33284#
    When prompted for the MSL, type 000000.
    Now, go to aLogcat. And it should have found a "sec_code:" line with your MSL code at the end of it. It's 6 digits.
