Re: No Service No time display

Press menu....settings....advanced.....reset to defaults.....reset settings(reset all will delete your sim contacts) But this is just to reset your phone but most likely this is not your problem, your phones most likely defective or water damaged

My Nextel i880 says enter special code what should I do

Sound as though maybe you're trying to use a "boost" sim card on a Nextel phone. The phone has to be unlocked in order for that to work.

Boost mobile sayin ready

call Boost and tell them you want to activate a used phone and sim card, (oh yeah buy a 20.00 reboost card) i think they charge 10.00 to reactivate, you can also go to ebay and get a starter kit with 5.00 and imei for like 4.00

Resetting motorola i830

There is no way to do such a thing. The i830 works off the iDEN network and is not compatible in any way with the GSM network used by Cingular. Sorry. Truth is, the i830 is junk, you're better off without it.

I830 nextel help

ok you need to call web support at nextel, they need to fix your texting. most likely you put your sim card into another nextel model. they need to clear it up in the back end they might need to verify your serial number and update it.

Phone saids ready

the i830's were junk. It's probably dented inside. If you want to try and get it fixed, you will need to have this repaired at a local service center. This is covered completely by Sprint Nextel's ESRP (Equipment Service & Repair Program) and TEP (Total Equipment Protection), and can be done at any Sprint Nextel Service & Repair Location. If you do not subscribe to ESRP or TEP, the charge for the repair will be no more than $55.
