List of donor phones with success history

For the benefit of all hackers, I am creating this new thread to list out phones which have been successfully used as a donor phone. So far, I have only seen Vero as a successful donor.

Please add your donor-model only if you successfully transferred your data service to another one.

Thanks much.

  • I have confirmed that Kyocera Brio can be used as donor phone. I ported that to Samsung Conquer [3G works, 4G not tested yet].

  • Hi Nirapada,

    Have you gotten 4g to work on your Samsung Conquer??

  • I can confirm that the Samsung M370 can be used as a donor phone.  I cloned the donor phone to a Sprint HTC Evo 4G.

    I have the following working perfectly:  Calls, Texting, 1x(2G) data, and 3G data.  

    Here is where I posted the instructions to find the elusive HA Shared and AAA Shared passwords on the M370:

  • The Kyocera Brio **does not **work as a 3g donor. I wonder if maybe we can get Ting to list the confirmed donor capabilities on the device pages or in a separate section besides a user thread. The main reason being that we have no way to make changes or updates once something is posted in this "forum". Maybe a real forum with some moderators and such...

  • I'm a newbie to all this.  Here's my question:  What happens to the donor phone?  Is it unusable after the numbers are used on another phone?  Do both phones ring if someone dials the phone number?

  • @SDoog,

    Based on what has been advised in other threads, you should never have both phones on at the same time.

    The donor phone is functional after the cloning, but both phones should not be on at the same time after cloning is complete.

    After I have cloned the donor to the target phone, I pull the battery out of the one that is not in use (just to be safe).
