What parameters do you need to clone?

I'm asking as an insurance policy.....

Just in case I lose or destroy my phone, what information should I have saved to setup another phone that I (hopefully) acquired cheaply as a replacement.

 

There's a bunch of information under settings,About Phone, Status...........

 

 

thanks

  • You won't be able to see most of the settings when just using the phone.  How you get to the information partially depends on what phone you are working with and the software you choose to use.  This post explains the process but the list may be different for your phone https://help.ting.com/entries/21760313-galaxy-nexus-working-in-ting-brio-donor.  You would only want to follow to the point of getting the info from the "donor" phone and skip the part of pushing those details into another phone.  If you want to tell us what kind of phone you have there may be someone here that can give clearer directions for that specific phone.

    It can be a bit overwhelming at first.  It is unlikely you will "brick" your phone when reading information from it.  Hacking a phone does come with it's risks.  Take is slow.  Do some googling and reading.  We are happy to help but if we don't have the same phone, it can be difficult to give a step-by-step.

    Stay tuned as the Ting Army gets assembled.  I think there will be some great information shared when we all get rolling.

  • Sorry I ended my sentence with a period after the link and the link picked it up.

    Hopefully someone will come along with directions specific to that phone.  I have not worked with it personally.

  • Once a phone is cloned and working on the Ting network, will a "factory reset" affect all the cloned keys and ID numbers?  In other words, will a factory reset revert the phone to the original carrier and original ID numbers?

  • It is safe to factory reset your phone.  The cloned numbers are store in the radio firmware and not part of the OS.  When you factory reset you are reseting the OS back to defaults.  Think of the clone numbers like the settings in the BIOS of your computer.  You can wipe the harddrive and reload the OS without changing any of the settings in BIOS.
