Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My phone will not program

I bought a used v9900 env from ebay, I went online and activated I received a response that it is activated I called *228 and as soon as the recording comes on the phone disconnects and says programming was unsuccessful. I can not call out it disconnects as soon as someone answers, and the same with in coming.
I wonder if it is set to not receive "Incoming or Outgoing calls?
PLEASE HELP.

If you go it on ebay and connected it online, its not going to work. You need to get verizon to re-flash it, of cours you will have to join there terrible service witha two year contract.

Or you could go to a local wireless company like "Pocket" Which is a local wireless company thats here is San Antonio. They can flash it with there settings and you use there service. Whomever activated it online probably did something wrong.

Now if you are already with verizon, take it to them and explain that your having problems with there service. Dont mention anything about getting it online or they will blackball you. They want you to by there phones not someone elses.

Just say you got it from a friend who had verizon and they got a new phone and ported his number over and gave you his phone to use and that you want to use it with a new number.

Its worth atry, when they flash it, you shouldnt have any problems.

Won't let me call or ring wene calling phone


If you just recently got this phone it may not be programmed or activated completely. When I got a new phone once, I couldn't make or receive calls.
I called Verizon and they told me to dial
*228
Select option one, and then follow the prompts.
*228 Verizon programming
*611 At&t Customer Support
I'm sure the company you have your service with can help you figure out if it's a problem with the phone, or your account.
I hope this helps you.

I'm a verizon customer who bought an LG Dare on ebay, I gave verizon online my MEID and it told me to call *228 to activate, but my phone says service required and I can't dial out.


Hello.
Try to use the MEID info in the #help*help screen to try to activate the phone.
If you still cannot, you need to fix MEID and ESN file on your phone.

If you do have a phone now with a working number what you do first is call *228. Now press 3, they will ask you for phone number, and last 4 digits of social security number. They program it and takes like a minute(they will play some lame waiting music). Hope I helped.

Phone won't program


Well, you got it used sop verizon wont have anything to do with you, especially if you had it ported to another service. I would take it to the dealer you have service with and have them re-flash the phone.

LG enV phone locked and can't get it unlocked?? don't know the last phone # for it either


ATTENTION!!!!!!!!

Ok, I checked out this problem and have the solution. The others are right it should
be the last four digits of your number. But if it still dont work, do this....(When your phone
is locked you can still call E911 or VZ special calls) So dial *228, press SEND, listen and when it ask you to select, press number 1. Give it a minute and it will say programming sucessful and then automaticly restart the phone. When it comes back on your phone will still be locked, but this time the code will be your last four digits. :) This should work for everyone...%100.

(very rarely when you dial *228 it will say programming unsucessful) just manualy restart your phone and if it still does this, just be patient the verizon system is down..BUT THIS RARELY HAPPENS.

I also have a problem. I've been working with computers since I was 10 yrs old. I also went 2 yrs. in college major in computer science but I put it on hold trying to get a construction business started. Well, last year I was in very bad accident disabling me. I'm 30 yrs. old and a single
father of two. I will draw SSI eventually, but very little. I've always made sure my kids
had a good life even after there mom left. Well, im on the verge of loosing everything. And computer work is all that I can do now. Can any of you tell me where I can find a good online job? I see all of those advertising about online jobs,but most of them are scams or invest now, make later. I need a online job that I can start making money pretty fast. I would really appreciate it if anyone can direct me in the right way of a good online job. For now any small job could help..

Thanks, Ge Johnson
