When the screen says inital programing needed or w/e you can still dial. only when that screen is up though. Do not press okay, try to get that screen back, itss not that had, but you can only dial when that screen is up, just dial the number your paper tells you to

I can't format my new micro sd card


The Samsung Alias works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card and will not work in devices not designed to work with them. You need to use a microSD card, 2GB or smaller.

Try reprogramming it back onto the network by pressing *228 and selecting option two. If it doesn't make a phone call at all, check around with friends in the area to see if they're having a simliar issue. If not, then call Verizon and they'll walk you through troubleshooting the phone.
It sounds like the transiever in the phone may be burnt out, so if troubleshooting doesnt help, then you'll need a service center. Visit verizonwireless.com for repair centers, and then call to confirm they'll repair the phone onsite rather than sending it out.

hi thanks for using fixya!

Unfortunately, you cannot. Verizon phones have integrated SIM cards that you cannot take out. You cant unlock a verizon phone.

Intermittent call quality


MY03- your phone could have microphone and antenna problems seeing that the phone had drop so many times.....the curcuit board could have a hairline fracture so it would be best to take it to a mobile repair shop and have them diagnosed it for you....to correct the issues.

DMR - try hard resetting your phone and see if that helps press *2767*3855#
