    Thanks, budney. I forwarded these tips to my friend with a PPC. I'm sure he'll appreciate them. Good info for anyone with one, no doubt.

    But I like doing hard resets. If I don't do at least one hard reset each day I think something's wrong... LOL ;)

    Ok, I've never done that. I still have the original ROM in it that AZcellphoneJunkie left on it when I bought it from him. Really though as long as TomTom works I'm happy.

    I have a CID unlock utility, so I tested some of the Custom roms on XDA, but I prefer my stock cingular rom (yeah I'm nuts) the only difference is I'm at much higher radio rom version than the stock cingular, for my 8125 I'm at radio 02.47.11 the stock is 02.25.11 (currently.) At least my phone no longer lies to me about signal strenght.

    I just did a hard reset this past weekend. I can't wait to get my hands on a Tytn or maybe a Wizard. I really want to hack and not have to worry about bricking my only phone. I do like to test and mod stuff on my 700wx, but I want to push the limits further. :)

    Hi, I tried your suggestion however it locked me out of going online after a soft reset by prompting for a user name and password. Initially when going through the steps you mentioned, When I reached the page for "user name and password" that you said not to touch, those fields were blank. I had to call verizon to get reconnected. Can you advise?
    Thanks,
    Randy

    The only two things I can think of are Verizon users need a special DNS, which seems rather stange to me. Or something in the set up didn't take or something was touched that shouldn't of been. If you remember what the Verizon rep had you do to get it running again, I would try it once more to see if it works.

    Thanks for your thoughts. The rep gave me a user name and password to put in the fields. Have done that and have checked save password. Rep told me that is the info needed to access their network. I think I may be able to do this now but want to be clear. When I get to the screen to enter the numbers you list, am I only concerned with the first 2 lines?Their are 4 on that screen, 2 for DNS and two for WINS. Do I only enter new numbers into the DNS lines and leave the WINS Blank? Thanks for your help, I am kinda rookieish at this. c",)
