    Hey, something has happened to my phone (It is unclear what exactly happened)
    but now my phone will not connect to my network
    after looking through the Katana's menus, I found that SID, Channel, Technology, and Frequency all have "------" in their values
    Since I am with solo (Bell mobility) my SID must be 16420, i believe i remember my channel as well, the technology is Digital and the frequency was either 1800MHz or 1900MHz.
    I also know the reverse logistic code (##786#) as well as my MSL number.
    Is there anyway to edit this data manually so as to avoid sending it in for 5-8weeks of repair.
    Also, do you think that those shady phone unlocker people would be able to do it if i cannot? (i dont have a usb for my phone so i am relying on all of the cellphone sodes)
    thanks alot

    ##3282# will get you into the 3G programming menu, but you need the MSL code, which can only be obtained by Sprint.

    Also, you can try this. It came from a Sprint Programming forum, so this may not work with Solo, it may.
