If you're with Verizon, you can simply dial *228, and choose option 1 when prompted. If *228 does not work, contact Verizon Wireless Customer Service from a different phone besides your cell phone at (800) 922-0204 and they can assist you with manually programming your handset.

To unlock the password on your LG Cosmos, you need to re-program your phone. This will default the code to the last four digits of you cell phone number.
You First need to temporarily activate the ESN (also known as MEID, HEX) off the back of your phone underneath the battery to you Verizon Wireless cell account.
You can change the ESN (Electronic Serial number) as follows:
2.) Dialing *228 opt. 1 from the phone you want to activate, while the current activated phone is off
3.) by calling customer service to temporarily activate the phone (1-800-922-0204 or *611 from a Verizon Wireless handset not involved.
(note: most all phones, even if their locked should still be able to call 911 and the programming number (*228)
You can activate the phone for a day to an existing account just to do this if necessary.
Once you change the ESN on to a phone number and program it
Dial *228 on your phone, listen in and pick option 1 for programming.
after listening to music for about a minute or two you should hear "programming completed successfully"
Once you hear this you can hang up the call. The phone should reboot by itself.
If not power it down manually and then power it right back up.
now you should be able to unlock the phone with the last four digits of you cell phone number you chose to activate it too.
If you have the phone handy, simply dial *72 followed by the ten digit number you want your phone forwarded to. If you do not physically have the phone, you will need to call customer service and request that they forward your phone manually in the "switch".
If you haven't already, try removing the battery while the phone is still on....this is called a "hard reset" and can often help resolve "glitchy" performance. You could also try Over The Air (OTA)programming if your service provider offers it. Verizon's OTA number to dial is *228, then choose option 1 when prompted. If that doesn't help, you may try taking it to a store to have the phone "flashed", where you get upgraded software version or have the same version reinstalled to resolve any corruption of existing phone software.
If NONE of these suggestions help, considering replacing the phone, either through warranty exchange, phone insurance program, or upgrade purchase.
Take a tiny screw driver or something like it and with it short out pins in the connection port on the left. The phone should then turn off. I had to do this a number of times and finally got car kit to turn off. Hope this works for you it did for me!
yes it is. you can set up a blocking number or numbers by simply holding # on the phone and entering each number you want blocked. seperateing each number by pressing ok. you can also call the verizon store for more info but that should work.
