    Flash the Verizon Droid Bionic to Cricket or Page Plus (talk, text, Internet, MMS)

    Full credit for this goes to snoop1979 from HowardForums.com. Remember that this tutorial was created in 2012 and used for flashing the phone to Page Plus. Take what applies to you and leave the rest. Your phone might already be on the desired software. In that case I believe you can skip to step 10.

    ------------------
    Ok so i got my hands on a bionic after my razr screen broke and i can't afford to buy a $250 screen.
    I already posted a tutorial for the razr which the procedure is exactly the same but ill do it with the bionic too.
    Basic knowledge of
    phone


    programing is required if you don't know anything at all about programming, i will try to help you and don't forget that google is your best friend ever.

    So whats needed:
    Motorola Droid Bionic phone
    a Blank LTE 4g sin card (i bought mine at ebay from this seller hxxp://
    myworld.ebay.com/eunbiyoo0616


    / )
    RSD Lite 5.7

    Bionic 32bit drivers
    MediaFire - Online Space for your documents, photos, videos, and music.



    Bionic 64bit drivers

    SD card on phone

    Knowledge


    of your MIN MDN numbers

    PLEASE PLEASE MAKE SURE PHONE IS 100% CHARGE AND DATA IS BACKED UP BEFORE PROCEEDING, ALL DATA ON PHONE WILL BE ERASED, SD SHOULD NOT BE ERASED BUT BACK IT UP JUST IN CASE.
    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK YOUR PHONE, I DID THIS TO MY OWN PHONE KNOWING THAT
    RISK


    , IT WORKED FOR ME, SHOULD WORK FOR YOU IF YOU DO IT STEP BY STEP.

    OK so assuming that you have RSD and drivers already installed we will start by restoring your phone, again all data on phone will be wiped out. Insert blank LTE 4G sim card on phone, is not needed to be taking it out so you can install back battery cover.

    1- turn phone off and turn on in AP FASTBOOT mode

    25- after a few seconds you should see EVDO on network and 3G icon will pop up. back out and back out.
    Your phone is all setup
    26- if you don't see 3G coming on and eHRDP is showing on network status, leave phone in CDMA ONLY (1x) for 24hrs then switch back to cdma auto prl (3G) nor call pagepluss
    customer


    center to have them reset your ESN, leaving 1x for 12-24 worked for me best.

    If your phone gets restarted or turned off. you phone will say needs to be activated again, however you will have talk and
    text


    enabled. to regain mms and 3g repeat steps 16-24. In my case once i loaded all my apps and stuff my phone doesn't get restarted unless runs out of battery so at least for me is not an issue having to reactivate. Once you achive EVDO/3G network connection status don't have to worry about reseting esn or leaving 1x for 24hrs again, it will automatically connect back to 3g.
    notes: *22800 activation will only work if phone is set to CDMA ONLY if other it will never activate. I never took LTE 4g sim card out of the phone.
