Kyocera K404 with Verizon - HELP

My son's Kyocera K404 (Verizon is my provider) mysteriously has a blank (actually very dark) screen but, other than that, the phone seems to work fine. When I turn the phone on the keys light up and the screen is like looking at a dark grey tv screen with no picture. After the phone initializes the keys and the screen turn off. I can dial out and can get calls in but I cannot see anything on the screen at all (no numbers, no text, no power bars, nada). Any thoughts? When I interrogated my 16 year old son he stated 'oh yeah...that sometimes happens but if I take the battery out and blow on the contacts it eventually comes back'. Oh yeah, like I believe that! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Walter The screen of my phone suddenly started acting weird, and eventually the whole image disappeared and the screen turned blue/purple. I have restarted the phone, and reinserted the battery after blowing on the contacs, but nothing has changed. Thank you!

To unlock your mobile you need to get network unlock code(NUC) from current service provider via phone or go to service provider office.

While you get the Network unlock code ,the service provider customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the mobile belongs to you only.If they are satisfied with your answers they will provide with the network unlock code.

I heard that virgin mobile is a bad carrier company; is there any way to switch my kyocera xtc to verizon?

In short I dont think so, Verizon does not use the SIM card style of phones, and Verizon does. So the phones are not compatible with the different networks. AT&T and T-Mobile use SIM cards so you may be able to use them, but I would contact your chosen provider and ask them if, "if you give them the EIN of the phone, if they can re-provision it?"

Hope this Helps!!

LG Dare - Short drop - unresponsive Dare!

1) Try removing the battery
2) wait 60 seconds
3) reinsert and power on
4) if problem is not resolved you need to get it in for warranty replacement.

If you are on verizon, you can walkin to any verizon store with a tech support dept and they may be able to exchange it onsite.

Hope this helps.
