Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

Open Question

Phone will get "stuck" at the Verizon screen on start up

My daughter's phone was working fine until she received a text and then it shut off. When we try to power it on, it will just go to the Verizon screen and stay there. The battery has a full charge. We took the battery out to reset it thinking it may solve it....of course, it didn't... Any help would be great as I don't want to buy her a new one and the last 2 we got off Ebay have not worked for long....

To answer the question on the unlock solution. Its the last four digits of the cell phone number assigned to the phone. This is correct unless the security code was changed in the settings.

SOURCE: how do i resolve the error: use genuine battery. power off

A temporary fix to the problem is to put the battery in the freezer for a minute and then put it back in the phone and it will turn on just fine! I had an LGVX8700 and it just randomly started happening one day and my fiance told me to try doing that so i did and sure enough it worked. I had to go to verizon at one point to get a new phone because the one i had got damaged and the tech there used the same battery in my phone for the new one and he thought i was crazy when i told him to put the battery in the freezer but he was in for a surprise when he did what i told him and my phone turned on. It's annoying because you have to do that everytime your phone shuts off but i always made sure i plugged it into the charger before it went completely dead.

SOURCE: my phone is stuck at

soohyungi Hi it sounds like the phone was doing a software update and it crash . You may be able to get it working again by taking out the battery but not put back on the phone, Plug the phone into the charger. Next I need you to look at the contacts on the phone see if they have any corrison on them. Now take a clean tooth brush one that hasn't been use. CLEAN the contacts and the charging port area . See if there is any dirt in the phone.If you can't get the phone to work go to a verizon corp store and let them take a look at it for you . Software crashes ocurr when thwe phone is in the middle and someone calls you . Hope this helps

My daughter was upgrading to a blackberry when I mentioned the problem I was having with my phone and they told me that I could upgrade my program on my phone at no cost. Whatever they did, fixed the problem! You have to go to a Real Verizon Service Center that has the equipment but it will fix the problem!

Such problems occur when your message center number has been tampered with. Call your service provider to get the message center number go to message settings and check the message center in use input the correct center number and your problem is solved.

It turns off while i text like when i try to reply it shuts off and its getting annoyingg please help:)

My phone was doing exactly the same thing. Other daughter said to empty text and email boxes.... and voila! It works just fine!
It seems that this problem happens on multiple vendor phones, so it's just not Motorola. Wonder if it's a Verizon bug?

My phones screens dont work the sound and calling does

Verizon offers a satisfaction guarantee.
If you did not damage the phone you should find out where there is Verizon technical assistance store in your area and they should be willing to swap it out for a new model if it is under 1 year old.

My enV2 will not send a text message. When i hit send the screen

my wife (it was her phone) had the same problem (noted above, 5/18) we tried rebooting the phone. nothing. we tried taking the battery out and starting it up again. nothing. we even tried *228 to reprogram the phone and update it. still nothing!

so she called Verizon support, and after being transferred to tier 2 support "they reset something on their end" and it was fixed. Not sure what she did with the phone to fix it, or what they did on their end. but after she got off the phone with them it was fixed. hope this works for everyone else.

Cant make calls or make or receive texts on verizon phone

The best thing to do is to take the battery out while the device is powered on and leave it out for thirty seconds, then replace the battery and power the device on, once it is at your main screen dial *228 and send selection option one by pressing 1 and let the music play after the programming is complete it should work just fine.

The key pad on my phone does not work

I have the exact same problem. It started yesterday but I didn't even check the phone until someone said they called and I never received the call. Then this morning the phone was off so I power it on and it said the battery was almos dead. I charged it but couldn't look at a text msg that I had received. Now the only button that work is the power button. I bet it has something to do with Verizon network. I will contact them to see what they suggest unless someone fines a fix sooner. Thanks!
