PROCEDURE - HOW TO GET MSL NUMBER OF YOUR PHONE:

1) download demo version of CDMA WORKSHOP from http://www.cdma-


ware.com (Not work on Windows Vista I tried it)

2) Install USB Phone driver on your computer if already installed go to next


step

3) run CDMA WORKSHOP, settings at main screen on the right are as


follows

(The phone must be connected to the computer but not as Mass Storage
because never will assign the COM Port) The phone can't display Connected
to Computer in the Phone display.

You need to go to Device Manager and verify COM Ports to know the correct
COM Port assigned to the Phone because each computer assign different
com ports. I will use com6 as example.

com settings (AT mode)


---------------
Port (com6)
Baud rate (38400)

com settings (DM mode)


---------------
Baud rate (115200)

4) you should now be able to hit <connect> if it was successful you'll see in
status bar <connected to com6>

5) now click <read> after a moment all your info will come up on left panel,
phone # etc
if not display the info change to another port and repeat step 4

6) click on security tab change the right panel setting to as follows

Passord(16 digits)
------------------
samsung (default)

7)now click send if done sucessfully you'll get a popup window saying
(password successful, phone unlocked)

8)note the number under <SPC/USER LOCK> the one that flashed red, this is
your MSL number( 6 digit) and is used to access the edit function under
##data# or ##3282# menus and every other hidden menu on your phone

GETTING MSL CODE DIRECTLY FROM SPRINT:

Call Sprint Customer Service by dialing *2 on your cell. Tell the tech support it
is internet related. When you get the internet support on the line tell them your
browser froze and you did a reset and it is asking you for a code. The code
they give you is not your security pin, but the actual individual master subsidy
lock for your Samsung instinct. DO NOT TELL THEM YOU NEED THE
"Master Subsidy Lock". You can tell them you did ##RTN# and you need a
code to finish the reset. FYI "##RTN#" does a reset of your Samsung Instinct.

That is your MSL code, write it down and memorize it. You will need that code
for changing the functions on the Samsung Instinct. I will post another module
further down on another method of getting the MSL code yourself, without
asking Sprint. It is quite easy if you use a program I have.
