Hi everyone -
Like a number of folks on Ting I've disabled data on my Optimus S in order to save some costs. (Thanks Ting for giving us full control of our phones!) So far its worked like a charm EXCEPT when I want to update the PRL/profile or firmware. When the update ____ menu item is selected the wifi shuts off! Obviously this causes the update to time out and fail because it has nothing to link to.
According to android experts this may be a normal behavior, but that said, does anyone know of a work around or a number that could be dialed to force an update? (Similar to *228, but I know Sprint doesn't use that particular number)
