I have an LG Optimus S (LS670) from Republic Wireless that I am desperately trying to get working on Ting. I think I have finally hit a brick wall and want to see if anyone here may be able to help. Republic Wireless uses a custom Cyanogen ROM to configure the phone as a hybrid VOIP/Cellular device. I have managed to remove the root and install a stock LG ROM by following this guide - http://androidforums.com/optimus-s-all-things-root/526376-step-step-rooting-flashing-guide-optimus-s.html. After loading the stock ROM I wasn't getting data, or cellular, just wifi. I contacted Ting support and they suggested a carrier reset by dialing ##72786# and a code they sent me. That was enough to get data working and the phone started to authenticate the phone for service. Unfortunately it was looking for Sprint's network and not Ting's so it wasn't able to find it. Then the phone launched the Sprint Zone app and it brought me to the Sprint Device Self Service screen which also didn't work to get the phone activated.
I have a theory on how to fix this and was hoping someone here might have the info. If I dial # #3282# and use another code that Ting sent me, I can access some high level config menu that allows me to edit things like the MMS server url. From the looks of it, it seems that the Device Self Service is also just pointing to a URL. So I'm wondering if anyone out there might know what this URL is?
I'll take any help I can get.
