    I just found a goldmine. I have a Sanyo 5300, I was experimenting with
    BitPim (see other post on this newsgroup for links). Here is what I did to
    find my MSL code:

    Go to Filesystem
    Go to \nvm\nvm
    Do a hexdump of nvm_0002

    What I see on my phone, among other data, is "Sprint", then the debug code
    "040793", then my SprintPCS 4-digit password, and then a six digit number (I
    believe it is another debug code, but all it does is restart my phone)
    followed by a second six digit number. This second number is the MSL code.

    I'm not sure if this works on all Sprint phones, just Sanyo, just Sany 5300,
    who knows. Also, this info may not be in "nvm_0002", it may be in one of
    the other files. Anyway, this news is big for anyone who wants to get their
    MSL code but doesn't want to resort to social engineering or paying someone
    $8 to do it for you. Spread the word!!!

    woohoo! What a lucky duck you are! Now you can change your home
    agent IP address. So have you called customer service yet to
    complain that for some inexplicable reason you can no longer
    access vision and you have no idea why, it just broke somehow
    and now you need a new IOTA push?

    Assuming this is legit, the first six-digit number might be the one-time
    lock code. It's used for the inital programming and then thrown out.

    Actually, there is a lot more you can do with your MSL code, including
    switching carriers and changing your call priority.

    Oh? What other wireless CDMA carrier will allow your esn onto their system
    to sign up?

    Getting your MSL is absolutely trivial.

    WRITE IT DOWN when you first activate your phone.

    If you don't want to use your MSL code, don't use your MSL code. If you're
    morally object, then keep it to yourself. This post was for those who are
    always asking for how to find their MSL code and here it is. Do what you
    will with it.

    And again I ask, just what other CDMA wireless provider will sign up an ESN
    that isn't in their database and where they don't carry that particular
    phone model?

    Oh? They will activate a phone model that they don't sell? Are you sure
    about that? The only time someone has reported they were successful in
    getting their phone on another carrier is when the other carrier sold the
    same model SPCS did.
