How To: Get MSL Without Sprint or Root
Didn't see this posted anywhere and thought it would be good knowledge for anyone in need of obtaining their MSL without contacting Sprint.
This does NOT require you to be rooted!
1.) Go to Market and download & Install 'Connectbot' (should be dev by Kenny Root, Jeffrey Sharkey)
2.) Launch Connectbot
3.) Touch the ssh dropdown and switch it to local, type in any nickname
4.) Type "getprop ril.MSL" exactly (without quotes)
5.) Readout is your MSL
Note: There may be an issue when using Swype, it kept changing the i to a capital I for the command so it would not work. Simply switch to the Samsung keyboard temporarily to solve the issue.

I posted this in my LOS thread. Same thing just another App.
***I think you need the stock Kernel or else you might get a bootloop
The MSL can be found by downloading "terminal emulator" and typing "getprop ril.MSL" It is case sensitive.
From there, go to the phone, and type ##72786# , at the SCRTN screen select yes, let the phone reboot, let the activation go through its thing NOT TOUCHING THE SCREEN unless it tells you to. Let it do a reboot again.

Well heck! Neither app worked for me.
I typed in the getprop ril.MSL and hit enter, it just went down to the next line and waited for something else to be typed.
I have the Evo 3D.
Dissatisfaction is DEFINATELY on the rise again!
