Re: pls help!

This should do the star, call button(the green one), three, and power button all together while powering up your them until formatting comes out then you release them..note: don't release buttons until formatting does not appear....try and try until you succeed

Hi there,

Try formatting your phone and see if it works.
First make sure your phone is turned off.Then press the following buttons simultaneously (at the same time:

Power button + * + 3

This will restore and reformat your phone into factory settings. Hopefully your phone will be able to start again as if it were being used the first time from the box.

Let me know if it works,

Hope I have been of assistance to you,

Cheers :)

The code that the phone is looking for is the phone's security code. Check under SMS settings if your service centre number is valid. Try sending an sms from another service provider's sim, or a different one from the same service provider. if all else fails, contact your service provider and ask them for the sms service centre number which you need to key into the phone
