    Need help on getting data working on Q on ALLTEL network

    I have purchased Q phone (brand new) from Ebay and activated it on ALLTEL carrier by changing the ESN to my account. I have EVDO data service on the account, but I am not having much luck finding master user/pass to use data on PDA and via USB. The phone work just fine with voice and text messaging..

    It should be with password of alltel

    Anyone know how to modify the phone to make it work on non-VZ carriers? I already had the AAA (Data Auth Server) updated to match the phone ESN..

    Because my cousin had a vzn q in december but the datalink/broadband would never work on it.

    I've read elsewhere that your situation will not work.

    I can confirm that it will not work, period. Sorry you wasted your money. Can you activate it on Verizon?

    Nah, I didn't waste any money except for my time as I have resold the Q back on eBay within a week after getting it from eBay. The 1st phone has issue (non-data) which turned out first batch of Verizon Q phones has known hardware issues which I was glad I was able to get rid of. I already got new ALLTEL Q phone last week with WARRANTY for $99 after rebate..

    I wouldn't pay service with Verizon when I can get it with free service with ALLTEL as I work there. Verizon sucks with their TOS on limitation what you can do with their data service. (They claims unlimited but really 5GB cap and I do excess that 5GB limitation easily monthly with my PC Card).

    Yep, it is also a good thing that Sprint/ALLTEL has very good data roaming agreement.

    no money wasted, I'm using it right now. Just set your DUN to dial #777, no username or password and presto!. Took me a while to learn this. Your welcome ;)
