Question about Kyocera Switchback KX21 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Can't get it activated!!

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?

Manual Programming Code

To hand program the Motorola V3m Razr make sure you are at the main screen and type the following fairly quickly.
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

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.

Request code autocad 2006 VZJW SADG AZUQ L1DT Y92V DYPK 1U1L activation code....????? thk


The program is asking for an activation code.

The way it works is the program shows you a code and then AutoDesk sends you another code that you enter under the code you gave them.

Either you have to go on the internet to get the code or call AutoDesk on the phone.

Trying to factory restor my lg 9800 but dont have security code since I bought phone used how can I reset to erase all the previous owners **** ?

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!!
