I have an Alltel Milestone X on Page Plus. Voice and SMS work, but MMS and Data do not. I am wondering if I SBF the Milestone to a Droid X on Verizon would cure my issues. I have been reading post after post and have not come up with a real answer to this. I am worried that when the sbf overwrites my baseband that my phone will not work at all. This is my confusion...when the baseband is overwriten, does it deem the raidio useless, or just make it talk to a differant carrier (in my case Verizon). If this is the case, it should work????

Thanks,

Update:

Ok, I tried Verizon 605 with RSD lite and the phone would not boot, sbf'ed back to Alltel 605 and then tried using the Linux method with the Verizon 605 file and the phone would still not boot...so I am in the processes of going back to Alltel 605.

Any other suggestions on getting this thing working on Page Plus?

I ended up flashing my MX with the DX 621 sbf. Every thing is functional on PP.

That would be an sbf. The sbf files aren't "flashed" like a rom in clockwork recovery.

So I should use RSd lite to sbf using the .621 rooted zip file i got here [ROMS] Droid X 4.5.621 Stock Rooted / Stock Deodexed / Modded (1.6) ClockworkMod Flashable Updates by kY - Droid X Development - RootzWiki (http://rootzwiki.com/topic/25017-roms-droid-x-45621-stock-rooted-stock-deodexed-modded-16-clockworkmod-flashable-updates-by-ky/) ??????
try'd to flash the zip w/ rom manager but had no luck??

I've had 2 of these Droid X's that I have used the milestone ez method to root and everything works but MMS, they recive but wont send

I downloaded the file you pointed at and tried to use it in DS Lite but it's not a supported file: it's a zip of a file tree... how do I use it? Thanks!

If you're trying to use an Alltel file with RSD Lite use one of these https://sites.google.com/site/motosbf/milestone-x-sbf-files

I (https://sites.google.com/site/motosbf/milestone-x-sbf-files)f it is a zip, you need to unzip it first.

Thanks, and that did work, mostly... it did bring it back, but the browser goes to nTelos, which is significant to me. As far as I know it's an Altel motherboard but I flashed it to Page Plus (and later to Verizon) and it mentions nTelos repeatedly in it. It will do voice and text on Page Plus but not data or MMS. This thread said that someone flashed their Altel and got it to work all the way... I'd sure like to do the same! BTW: I used the zipped file to flash this. Where do you think the nTelos in this phone is coming from? (like, the browser: goes to the nTelos home page now... weird)
