SOURCE: Initial programming needed.

Call your service provider to have it reprogrammed.
This means maybe someone deleted the basic programing features of your phone like phone number. or the system ID got bumped by a software error. or it could be that the phone just got flashed. i know the code to program the phone but if you don't know about internal programing it will do more damage than good. since it will kill your phone if any wrong settings is applied.
Best bet is to have your service provider tell you the programing code and settings to be changed. because they will be telling you over the phone what to do.

SOURCE: I forgot unlock code

This worked for me Thank Oxzgen from omgili.com

OK... This is a little confusing and I didn't think it up (I wrote the part about HashCalc to adapt this method to the Juke). Here it goes:

Theres a number on the back of the phone: its 14 characters long... This is a MEID Hex code. It's not in the format you need to unlock your phone; you want ESN Hex which is 8 characters long. You need HashCalc (Free Program! Google it!) to convert it to ESN.
Pre.1) Open HashCalc
1) Set the [Data Format] (Drop-down box option at the top)
2) So you enter the 14 character code in the [Data] box.
3) Then make sure the box is checked next to the [SHA-1].
4) Then click [Calculate] at the bottom of the program.
5) Take the last 6 digits of the SHA-1 code.
6) Add 80 to the front of the code.
ie. Say the code was: 9a00297d20c0ef27c7afad981abbbad417045a64
Take the last 6 characters = 045a64
Add 80 to the front = 80045a64
This is the ESN Hex code I was talking about.

Now to convert the ESN Hex to your unlock code. I didn't make this part up...
7) Open your Windows Calculator (Sorry Mac Users!).
It's in Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Calculator
8) Set the calculator to Scientific Mode (in the view menu).
9) Then click the circle next to Hex to change to Hex mode.
10) Make sure your Hex mode is Qword (to the right of the Hex option)
11) Enter the 80****** code you created.
12) Change from Hex to Dec without clicking [=] or any other key.
13) The Lock Code is the last 4 digits of the Dec number.

Thats it! Theres your code. It worked with my Juke!

SOURCE: Initial Programming Needed on Samsung Renown with Verizon

Verizon customer service isn't always very helpful, but the verizon website can be. Try clicking phones&devices under the support section. Once you select what type of phone you have, you will see that it says "activate phone" on the left side of the page. This will guide you through the activation of your phone, and the instructions are pretty clear. Hope this helps.

Why can't people phone my phone please


  • Verizon ??
  • Dial *228 and push "Send" to complete the call to the activation service. A screen will appear over the call timer that says "Programming in Progress..." and you should hear a voice recording say, "Welcome to Verizon Wireless Over-The-Air Programming."
  • Press 1 for initial programming. This option is used if the phone has been deactivated or is being activated for the first time.
  • Press 2 to update roaming information and to download a free software upgrade to enable better roaming coverage. Pressing 2 and choosing this option will assign your phone to another tower that should enable better reception, especially when roaming

Initial programming needed


Well, assuming that you use Verizon...

Your phone should have come with a "Stop! Read This First" sheet. Mine was yellow.

Basically, you charge the battery, then dial *228
Follow the prompts.

If you use another service provider...
Call your service provider!

Verizon LG VX5300


If you're with Verizon, you can simply dial *228, and choose option 1 when prompted. If *228 does not work, contact Verizon Wireless Customer Service from a different phone besides your cell phone at (800) 922-0204 and they can assist you with manually programming your handset.
