Question about Cell Phones
Tips for a great answer:
So you're playing with all the settings in your phone and you notice this nice security menu. Wow, maybe you should enable the lock code. But you don't want to have to enter the lock code all the time, so you set your phone to only need a code when it turns on. Ah. Some piece of mind. What's this other sub-menu? Network? What's a NAM? Hmm. Let's set NAM 2 and see what happens. EEEK! Your phone's rebooting. Why's it doing that? Okay. Here's that new prompt for the security code. It's okay. I remember it's the last 4 digits of my phone number. Oh No! That didn't work. Unfortunately, when you switched to NAM 2, you switched your phone over to a different phone number. Your code's no good. Your phone is useless.
There are 2 solutions. The safest and best solution is to take your phone back to Verizon and have them reprogram it. A few people have told me Verizon is uninterested in doing this. A more risky solution is below. It will reset your phone to its original settings and erase all your phone numbers you have in the phone but it should get your phone working again. I've never had to fix this problem on my own phone, but a bunch of people have emailed me their thanks to say that this works. If this doesn't work or you make it worse, please don't blame me, especially if you don't follow the directions very carefully. I believe this proceedure works, but there is one mistake that if you dial a 9 at just the wrong moment, then you're going to be guaranteed making a trip to Verizon (so speaks the voice of experience). So, without further ado, here's the proceedure:
