Phone says initial programming needed on the screen.VX9700


This means it has lost it's programming somehow, you are going to need to take it in to your cellular provider's nearest office so they can help you fix the phone. Please rate my answer as 4 thumbs up, I would be forever grateful, I really need it. I'm sorry there is no easy fix for your phone, but it can be fixed by your local cellular provider store staff.

Thanks

When phone is turned on the screen says "Initial programming needed" and I can not send or receive calls


You need to contact your service provider and perform the the initial programming.

You cannot call or receive until you do this and YOU must do it in connection with your carrier.

enter ##626# and hit send button. it will bring u to option to select nam1 or nam2, select nam1.. go to next screen, enter in the sdc code which is 000000, (6 zeros), enter or next screen, make sure that mid is same as ur cell number, go to next screen, it will show ur number again, next screen, will be sid and nid numbers... they are what they should be, go next screen, then i think there is option to be done, view, edit choose done, next screen then it will program by itself. powering on then off, bringing u back to same screen with the same window of initial programming needed, just go to enter code, and enter the last 4 of your cell number, and it will let u through,.. just remember to go back in to your phone options menu and change the nam setting in there back to nam1 also. then it will power off and on again. program should be complete... you can always also dial *228 and option 2 to reprogram your phone again to

Initial programming needed


Dial *228 and press send. Listen for the prompt and press 1 to program your phone. Remain on the call while your phone is programmed (could take up to 2 minutes). Do not hang up until you hear, 'Your phone has been programmed successfully."
Good luck!

"initial programming needed" problem


I can not guarantee this Punksk8er but, i did the same thing with my phone by switching the battery with my mother's and I ended up with the initial programming needed sign. This is how i fixed it...


Go to...
>Menu
Select the option...
>Settings
Scroll down to...
>Phone Settings
Then Select the option...
>NAM selections
There you will see the options
>NAM1 &NAM2

Mine was on NAM2 and i switched it to NAM1.
The system restarted and the error "initial Programing needed" went away.

I am no phone expert or anything so I don't really understand how it works but i hope this helps you out dude.
