    Default How to flash Echo with another Carrier / operator?

    Dear all,
    As subject above, is there any step to follow? I would like to flash my Echo with another Carrier / Operator beside Sprint.

    Really, really appreciate if someone would like to share his/their knowledge on this issue..thanks

    Verizon is the only other carrier (besides Sprint) in the US that uses CDMA, so technically the Echo could work with their network. However, I don't think there is a way to do this. Granted, I'm no developer, but I have not heard of anyone making a ROM that would allow a phone designed for network A to work on network B. That being said, there is also very little if any development going on with the Echo, so even if this were possible, it's not going to happen anytime soon.

    Thanks for the reply bro,
    but I am not living in US, there are some Verizon's or Sprint's devices that run on CDMA works fine here.
    especially droid's family such as droid 1, Droid 2, R2-D2 or even Droid 2 Global. If droid could run on CDMA's network in my country, so why can't Echo??

    Of course the parameter of flashing the devices will be different but to me it's possible..I just sharing some thought here, maybe you guys have another idea for making it possible

    Let me rephrase a bit. A Sprint device can run on another cdma network, but depending on the service roaming charges might be involved. Likewise with a verizon device running on another cdma network.

    However, you would not be able to buy a sprint device and assign it to your account on another network (verizon for instance). it all really just depends on how all the different service providers work over there.

    Hope I havent confused you, I may have confused yourself. In short, if you know of some other sprint devices that are working fine, then you shouldnt have a problem with the echo.

    You can unlock the phone (or have it done) and it should work on any CDMA carrier.

    I'm not privy to extra/additional charges you may incur while doing this, however.

    Is the Echo offered through any other service provider at the moment? Because when I read the thread title, the first thing I thought of was the FrankenPre.

    For those who are unfamiliar with the term, a FrankenPre is a Palm Pre (Sprint) that has had it's comm boards switched with a Verizon/ATT Palm Pre Plus or Pre 2 or vice versa. This, in effect, gives the Sprint user a Pre +/2 with his Sprint comm boards still in tact. (Think of it as swapping engines between cars.)

    @Cappin,
    sorry for late reply bro, did u already resolve the issue?
    if not, maybe these steps would help u :
    1. You have to have some tools like CDMA workshop, QPST Tool & HW virtual serial port
    2. unlock code for Sprint kyocera Echo, there are some guys in the internet that can provide u the unlock
    code, just give him the DEC code (18 character), it stated on the Echo's box
    3. AMIN & Key also PRL file from your local Operator

    search for inject / flash other's CDMA phone on internet such as droids family (droid 1, droid 2, etc), then you could follow the steps, it also applicable for inject the Echo..

    Hope this can help you my friend

    For the step 1, Could you give me some details? I have some guider documents about how to flash droid/droid x to other carrier. But droid and droid x are verizon phones. Does the sprint kyocera echo use the same flash steps as droid?

    For diag I got it by holding power and volume upand down led is green but nothing else shows up
    got the drivers off kykcera website. But in cdma ws nothing is viewable. And qpst won't let me do any changes or even look at the settings I'm trying to get on page plus but nothing works
    Idk can some one provide details

    Default Re: How to flash Echo with another Carrier / operator?

    Okay I have figured it out. You need to download the ndis driver and then go to pc connection then select tethered mode then your in diag. Also use cdma ws to find the spc. done.

    I know this is a little late to be asking, but can anyone help me? I have had my Kyocera Echo now for 2 weeks after one cellphone shop told me on the phone that they could flash it to boost. When I went over there, the person at the desk told me they couldn't. I really like the phone and I would love to have it flashed over to boost. Can anyone help me out here?
