Have old i830 phone from nextel want to put cingular sim card in there to use this phone i put the card in from cingular and turned on the i830 and it is asking me for special code. what is this and how can i get it thanks
There is no way to do such a thing. The i830 works off the iDEN network and is not compatible in any way with the GSM network used by Cingular. Sorry. Truth is, the i830 is junk, you're better off without it.

press menu....settings....advanced.....reset to defaults.....reset settings(reset all will delete your sim contacts) But this is just to reset your phone but most likely this is not your problem, your phones most likely defective or water damaged
the i830's were junk. It's probably dented inside. If you want to try and get it fixed, you will need to have this repaired at a local service center.
