I tried to activate my phone with no luck. The Metropcs rep gave me the security code to program the phone but it said wrong code please try again. I see that whoever had my phone before their phone number is still programmed in the phone. Is there anyway I can get my phone activated? The rep said that it just might need to be resetted. Is this true? Can I reset it or do I have to take it to one of their stores?

MetroPCS Communications, Inc.Unlocking a phone enables you to use your phone on a compatible carrier's network. ... LG Leon LTE ... Note: If you do not restart the device, you will have a persistent alert in the notification tray. ... Note: For warranty exchange phones, the activation date is the date of the phone you originally purchased, not the activation ...Missing: v10
To hand program the Motorola V3m Razr make sure you are at the main screen and type the following fairly quickly. #073887* then a new screen will come up asking for a security code. Most of the time it will be 000000 but if it is not you will have to get it from your provider(Alltel, Verizon, Sprint, Cricket....etc..) Then from there choose User Activation and then you will have 4 settings MDN..... MIN...... SID...... IMSI......
Your MDN is always going to be your current phone number. Your MIN will sometimes be your phone number but not always. So while you are talking to your Wireless rep be sure to ask them for your MIN and SID Your SID will be provided by your Wireless Rep. Do not modify your IMSI After you have entered these settings just press Done and then the End Call button to return to the main screen. Your phone will not powercycle and you can resume using the auto updated by dialing *2 for sprint or *228 for most other providers.
1 - Open the Flip 2 - Press MENU >> Then ' 0 ' [ zero ] 3 - At the Service Code prompt enter six zeros 4 - Choose option 12
Phone should REBOOT and RESET to Factory Defaults... But, if you want to go to the pre-activation stage, that's a different process...
1 - Flip Open, Press Menu 2 - Press 0 followed by 000000 [6 zeros at the Sevice Code Prompt] 3 - Choose Option 1 [ Service Program ] 4 - Click the OK soft button [brings you to the * Phone Number (MDN)* screen] 5 - At that screen enter 10 zeros - to replace your current phone number 6 - Click the OK soft-button 7 - At this screen repeat step number 5 8 - Now click END
Phone will REBOOT by itself and the screen will now display " Initial Programming Required " - This is what the Sales Rep sees when he/she opens the box and boots the phone the very first time to program it to your account
The default security code is simply 12345 and should work unless changed by your friend or MetroPCS. Hope this helps, if not, you may have to hard reset the phone. I will not explain how, but you can google it easy enough. Good Luck!!
I have the same problem- Yesterday I bought my second hand and the phone number wasnt programmed into the phone either. Try doing it like this 74663# press menu and press menu again it should bring up the user activation
