    TY for your above code …..
    1. Exactly what filed (and where can I get them) to flash the VErizon Fascinate to Boost.
    2. What setting do I need to know to make internet work (not just voice and SMS).

    is there a way to avoid pressing this code every time i reset my phone?
    i have bad esn and work the phone with wifi only

      yes, you have to install a custom ROM.  Google “cyanogenmod” or look up the ICS [android 4] rom that is quite stable.

        Thx Matt!

        I already  have the  cyanogenmod, each time I restart the phone it asks me to activate, but I will cancel this screen wiith just with home button.is there a way to avoid this one too?Regards,Zack
