Once you bloc the phone it has a code that sits in the bios. Contact the manufacturer and get help un-blocking the phone.

SOURCE: Airplane Mode..

Here is the link to the user manual; http://www.nextel.com/assets/pdfs/en/support/guides/phones/i265/ug.pdf Check page 119 of the manual (129 of the pdf)says: "Sometimes you may want to have your phone on,but turn off its ability to make and receive calls, such as when you are on an airplane. To set your phone so that it cannot make or receive phone calls, Direct Connect calls, Group Connect calls, Talkgroup Calls; or transfer data: 1 From the main menu, select Settings > Advanced > Airplane Mode. 2 Set this option to On. This icon U appears. Note: Pressing p for more than 5 seconds also turns on Airplane mode. To restore your phone?s ability to do all these things: Set this option to Off." Hope this helps :)

check your wifi settings by turning on your wifi, instead of selecting wpa or wpe, select infrastructure and select none for password. try also dragging your wifi home network to your phone wifi icon. and check.

If you're getting an authentication failure, you need to stop trying to get into your neighbors wifi... No, Seriously, here's the deal... 1. If you're inputting a password, you're not setting it to the right type of encryption...Try them all with the same pass 2. If you're sure it's the right encryption, make sure it's the right password, correct spelling, and capitalizations are a MUST!!! 3. There could be a chance that there's a password on the wifi network, and the phone's OS doesn't have an icon show up for that (you'd be surprised where manufacturers cut corners to mass produce things cheaper, and samsung's bad about that with their phones.

SOURCE: what is the wifi password and how to solve this

WiFi password is not set by your phone. It's dependent on the device called router that allows you to connect your phone to the internet cloud.If it's on a public network or WiFi hot-spot usually it doesn't have a password, but if it does, you may need to ask a personnel from the establishment where you are currently staying. Same goes if you're connecting to a university or a coffee shop, better ask the password from the personnel available.
Moving forward, the "authentication failed " usually appears when you're not able to provide the correct passkey, or network password

Samsung galaxy note 2- authentication error for wifi. I put proper password and it still doesn't work


Hello

i think you better make sure you've entered the correct security type and encryption type before trying to connect to your router

also, if you are not able to connect to other wifi as well, then there should be the problem of your phone, either software or hardware.

for a software problem, try updating your phone to the latest version available, see if the problem has been fixed.

if the software fix doesn't help then i suggest you to bring you phone to where ever you brought it and ask for a warranty repair.

hope this helped
cheers

I have just purchased an eMachine e350, I am having trouble connecting to wifi through the home router(it is on)...I am putting in the security key code but it is saying it is a mismatch...my fathers...


I understood your problem...first check your laptop WIFI is on/off....after switching it on it automatically search for WIFI connectivity arround you...

If your father's laptop find/access that WIFI device then you have problem in code authentication....best solution is that you should remove authentication check....before connecting ..

Second thing is that such a problem cause due to improper installation of of wirless broadcom drivers for your eMachine e350......so ultimately you should re-install wifi drivers from provided CD/DVD...

Restart your device it automatically detect hardware and functions properly...

My mobile phone Nokia 5310 was stolen on 25-2-2011. the thief left my sim card . i have the imei number of that phone. is there a way to block all functions of the phone using the imei no.? i'm using my...


You're a bit late in taking the action. However, you can contact your network provider now, explain your situation and ask him to block the IMEI number. The network provider might want you to file a police report to ensure that the theft was authentic; so do that. Once listed, regardless of what network is being used on the stolen device, it won't work and the network provider will be able to trace the stolen cell phone.
The process can vary from city to city, however it's best to report theft to police and contact your network provider.

What if u found a phone that has been reported lost how can you connect it


Your question is what if I found a phone that was reported lost...I would return it. That is why Verizon put's measures in place to block accounts from allowing people to activate phones that have been reported lost or stolen. Put yourself in the place of the person that rightfully purchased the phone and has either misplaced the phone or had it stolen. Would you want someone to return the phone or would you want them to try to work around the system to try to activate the phone that they already know is lost or stolen. By knowing the phone is lost and having the ability to return it and purposely not doing so, you are stealing the phone. Since Verizon has the MEID number on the back of the phone, they can return it to the rightful owner if you give it to them. If it were me, I would give it to Verizon and do the right thing.
