    I've heard once a phone is reported stolen,it's black-flagged so no one can activate

  • giterduntree Jul 19, 2009

    The phone is now free to be reactivated with my name and primary number,but with all the "UNLOCK CODE" companies out there,im still worried he might try something(especially if I give him bad feedback).He has all #'s from phone

Hello Giterduntree,

First thing is Verizon phones do not use SIM cards..Is it an AT&T version ? Or are you talking about his memory card ? I'm simply curious want to make sure everything is understood.

Now to answer your question, once someone reports a cell phone stolen to the service provider they send out a signal over there network locking the phone. It can be reversed, as once they report they have it back or that it's been found they will then unlock it.

If you are going to keep the phone you need to contact your service provider (Verizon, AT&T, ect) and tell them the situation. They will ensure that the previous owner cannot do that down the road. People cell phones (used, or unlocked) all the time. I personally bought a palm treo while back and called AT&T and had them take care of this same problem for me.


Hope this shed some light on your question. Post back with anymore questions or comments for additional assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

This can get killed at any phone company once it has new sim in it he can't do sq-wat I would not worry about it once it's in your name any screwing around with it could land him in prison as he is messing with FCC class C felony and they would go after him.

Have the owner transfer ownership over to you through the manufacturer so that your name appears on it. If he has the Meid number, then he can report it stolen in the future possibly but he can not otherwise corrupt your phone. Hopefully he is honest enough to not do such a thing as once the phone is in your name, anything he does towards the phone is illegal. Confirm the transfer of ownership after the seller says he did it. I assume that you got this through ebay. If the seller becomes unhelpful, rate him poorly. Tell him that for all of the extra trouble, you also want payment for what it cost to ship the SD card back and that he will get a good rating once he transfer ownership and once he pays for the extra shipping cost. I would also maybe charge him a little extra for all of the hassle that you had to go through. Let me know how this turns out. If the description is not fully accurate when I get something, I tell the seller right away and demand money back usually or they get the worst rating I can give them and it works. People need to be fully honest and descriptive.

I have a LG dare cell phone and want to transfer some pictures to my Laptop. Lap top is running windows vista 64 bit. when I connect the usb the pc does not recognize the usb connection. It recognizes all...


Well, for music...
Install the supplied software for your Dare on your computer.
In "My Music" select "Sync".
You can now see your Dare as a USB device but only music is accessible. :{

For photos the easiest way is to use a micro SD card and a card reader.
Store or move photos from your internal memory on your Dare to the micro SD card.
Transfer the micro SD card to your computer with either a built in card reader or a USB card reader.

The next alternative is to use a program like BitPim which can be a little tricky and can delete or copy all of your personal data (images, tones, contacts, etc...) depending on which button you press. The two buttons look very similar. Great way to download free ring tones and upload to your phone for free.

UNLOCK CELL PHONE!


Unlocking the LG Dare VX9700 is quite difficult unfortunately. Since Verizon phones are CDMA and not GSM, you will need some advanced unlocking software, which you can learn more about from this phone guide.

Turn off your phone, remove and reinsert the card and turn on your phone. Browse to your music player and refresh the music library before trying to play any music.

I cant transfer music or anything from my pc to my phone


Install the provided LG Dare software on your computer.
Using your USB cord, connect the phone to the computer.
Open windows Media Player.
Media Player should see your phone.
In the sync screen, drag music from your library to the sync column and then select sync.
This will copy the selected music to your phone.

Photos are easiest with a micro SD card, otherwise, you need software like BitPim.
Transfer photos to and from the micro SD card and the insert in your phone.

The only carrier in the US using the Dare is Verizon Wireless. Unfortunately, they use a hard-coded chip, not a removable SIM like other carriers. I am afraid that, without some serious hardware re-wiring, you will not be able to use the Dare on any other network.
