SPC= Service Provider Code



It will read it. Try setting the mode to Qualcomm. Otherwise I suspect that the version of uniCDMA you have is the problem try version .98 or try CDMA Universal.

When your phone is activated, they use the SPC to get to the settings that activate your phone on your mobile account. Different carriers refer to it by different names, but generally, a rep from your carrier will have access to this number.

No the SPC is the code that is required to enter the NAM program screen manually. Just type ##000000 then send if you get an error then you have to get the code or QPST will not have access to the firmware

i was able to go through the whole thing... i apologize for tho thoroughly reading your guide....

question, is this supposed to allow the GPS to work for apps like GOOGLE MAPS and others? or is this just so that the BB MAPS can get a gps fix?!

Glad you got it working. Yes on Telus this will work with 3rd party apps.

EDIT: What was the issue with uniCDMA ?

Did some research and other Storm Users report the same error too. They went back in QPST and did a read from phone and the info was now there. So I would say that error is normal on the Storm.

Make sure your using QPST 2.7 build 215 nothing else will work. Use Google to find it.

Also use the Telus or Bell settings for the PDE on SaskTel
