Initial programming needed

I wanted to restore my cellphone as it was at the before. So, I went into my menu and into phone setting, reaching to my security to restore it. I entered the password, and did so. Something appeared on the screen that reads: to restore successfully, you are going to enter the following code, which was *228. My cellphone restarted and asked for the code. I entered the code, but it did n work. The the screen says: Programming unsuccessful. What can I do, Everything was lost from the phone, my contacts, music and all. Please help

The same happened to me. What you do is, your supposed to enter the code. If it doesn't work, enter your password from before. Everything is erased because it reset itself. There is nothing yoou can do. You can also bring it to a Verizon Store for them to restore your contacts and music.
Most likely it won't help.

Sorry about your phone,

My ascer want restore factory restore

You may need to restore your Acer computer to its factory defaults if a virus damages operating files or if the system begins acting erratically for unknown reasons.

Restoring an Acer to factory defaults returns the computer to its original state when first purchased.

Click on the Start menu.

Then, select all programs, Acer Empowering Technology and Acer eRecovery Management.

If this is the first time you have opened the program it will prompt you to set up a password and create a backup CD.

Click the Restore button and select the option that reads "Restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the computer to finish the restore process and reboot.

Restoring for the Boot Screen

If your computer will not boot up properly, you can attempt to reach the restore option by pressing the Alt button and the F10 button at the same time.

When the eRecovery menu appears, choose "restore system to factory defaults".

Wait for the recovery process to complete and the computer to restart.

Hope this helps

My c261 problem

HI there,

  1. You have to set both unit blue tooth configuration settings.
  2. Turn On the blue tooth for each unit
  3. Make or initialize pairing on the unit that will send the data.
  4. The other end(cellphone) has to accept the connection invitation from your cellphone.
  5. It will ask a password, you can input a 1234 or just leave it blank if you don't want to use a passkey.
  6. After you have done the pairing, select the file you want to transfer.
  7. Select Option >> Send >> Via Blue tooth.
  8. Select the paired cellphone you connected via blue tooth that you have DO on steps 3.
Hope this initial info helps.

Just let me know for further instructions.

Tmobile shadow cellphone

Power the Shadow off. Hold down the two soft buttons (The two right under the screen) and turn it back on. There should be a quick menu that pops up asking if you want to reset it. Say yes, let it reboot, and it will then start restoring your phone to defaults.

You will loose all your data.

"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...
Select the option...
Scroll down to...
>Phone Settings
Then Select the option...
>NAM selections
There you will see the options

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.
