My phone keeps on saying initial programing needed.

It all started When i clicked on the switch to NAM 2 mode. Then it said restarting and now all it says is initial programming needed. also when i click the ok button it says to enter the lock code but my regular lock code isnt workin and i already tried resetting it but it wont reset. My phone is the Samsung/Verizon Juke.

    by default the phone is in MTP(Music Transfer Protocol mode. This makes it impossible for Verizon to flash the phone.

The solution is that you have deleted all files off your phone. so you have to take it to the verizon place so that they can reset it or if it's bad enough you can go get a new phone!!

Hope i was a help

Your code should be the last four numbers of your phone number

Changes NAM Settings?


Here's some ideas for unlock codes, most phones use the last 4 or possibly 7 digits of the phone number, 4 or 5 - 0's or 12345.
Basically your NAM settings contain the phone number info for a carrier, and you can put two different numbers in the same phone using NAM1 and NAM2, what you have done is switch it to an empty NAM so it is asking for the rest of the programming info to set it up.If you can switch it back to NAM1 it should work again. Most phones have an option in the menu for phone settings that allows NAM switching without needing a code.

I had my phone in my pocket during a walkathon when I pulled it out it said initial programming needed. How do I perform the initial programming?


You accidentally switched to NAM 2. Simply go to the menu; tools and settings' phone settings; NAM selection; NAM. This should help.

"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.
