Default How do you change "my number" for Pearl 8130?

Please Login to Remove!

I have the pearl 8130 from Sprint and I put down a wrong number when I was told to input my phone number. Now everytime i make a call or so it bugs me to somebody else's number and not my number in the "my number" display. Any ideas on how to change that, thanks!

You need to get the MSL (lock code) from Sprint for your device (6 digit number). When you get that, dial ## and the MSL and press the green Send button - you'll open a CDMA programming screen.

Change the Mobile Directory number to your cell number (10 digits only - no dashes, spaces, or 1 at the beginning). Then click the trackball and click Save.

The device will display 'Write successful, resetting device' and reboot.

And welcome to the forums!

U.S. Cellulars lock code is a tricky one: 000000 (6 zeros) for all future peeps who check this thread out.

juwaack68 I have a 7100i that I am trying to do the same thing for and the ##000000 is not working... Any other ideas? Or does it not work for all devices?

Wirelessly posted (My blond BlackBerry)

The ## does not work for the 7100i. If your 'my number' field is wrong, you could try a Master Radio Reset.
