I had this problem with a android phone myself unfortunately you may have to get another one. but try this out. hold down the up volume and power but until the phone shuts off, that should put the phone in super user mode. once it goes in reset mode ( you'll know because there will be a little android on the screen. Then just power off by holding down the power button again and let the phone come back on.

I put password then i forgot it.


I'm afraid you'll have to hard reset your device, in order to get past the passworrd request screen. You, most probably, know that a hard reset will return your device to its factory defaults, thus deleting all the programs you have installed, as well as your personal data and settings. If you have a recent full backup, to be used afterwards to restore everything, you'll avoid having to start all over again from scratch. Anyway, to hard reset your device, press and hold both the blue 'Fn' and the green 'Call' buttons, and, whilst keeping them pressed, briefly press the power button. Release the buttons only when a confirmations screen comes up. Confirm the procedure by pressing the key that screen tells you to. If the hard reset procedure is successful, your reset will reboot, and when it comes back to life, you'll notice all the initial settings setup (align screen, data, password, e-mail, etc.)
Hope you have a fully working phone pretty soon.
Please, let me know if you need further assistance.
Regards, Carlos

"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.
