    hi there, just wondering what happens when you master rest a 7100i that is unlocked?

    does the unlock get reset ?

    sounds like a stupid question to me - but i have to ask.

    thanks

    Welcome to pinstack.

    The master radio reset is just like a master reset on any other iDEN phone, it resets the connection between the phone and the towers.

    hi, thanks for the reply.
    but now i am confused - my 7100i is unlocked.......
    all i want to do i remove the settings already on the phone from the previous user.

    so master reset resets the connection to the tower - how do i reset the phone itself - like a master clear. and if that is possible - will it reset the 'unlock' already completed on the phone.

    thanks

    Once unlocked, always unlocked.

    To remove all user data go to Options > Security Options > General Settings, highlight anything and press the scroll wheel. Select Wipe Handheld from the menu.

    thanks, thats what i wanted to hear - once unlocked always unlocked.

    now about the wipe handheld- that clears all applications as well. basically sets it to factory shipped settings ?

    Re: master reset unlocked 7100i

    Is there a way to make the Nextel 7100i compatible to Sprint?
    Long story short:
    My Sprint phone gets stolen, friend gives me a Nextel 7100i. Wondering if there is any way to convert this Nextel phone to a Sprint phone.
    Please HELP!

    Hi Bigfiregr8. No there is no way to use the Nextel (tdma) phone on the Sprint (cdma) network. Sorry.
