Cant activate my samsung galaxy s4 mini with us cellular

US Cellular is a CDMA network. Maybe your Galaxy S4 is for a GSM network? GSM phones have a SIM cards and these need to be changed to activate them on another GSM network as well as the GSM phone being unlocked to do this. In USA only T- Mobile & AT & T run GSM networks. Outside of USA most networks are GSM. There are four GSM frequency bands which vary in use by country. The S4 if it is a GSM phone, being an high level phone would be a quad band phone, so it will work anywhere. Cheaper phones may only have Dual Band and therefore only work in the countries with the matching frequency bands.

Do this cel phone could work with GSM band? How can I unlocked the phone to made it works?

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

The Samsung Glide was marketed for Verizon (which is a CDMA Network). As such this phone doesn't have any GSM frequencies programmed in it. Therefore, it can never be flashed for GSM networks. It is, and always will be a CDMA phone.

I have a Verizon LG VX8300 phone that I would like to give to my grandson to replace his lost phone. His service is on T-Mobile. Can this be done (I can't even find the SIM card in the phone).

Lg VX8300 is a cdma phone that doesn't carry sim card. Your grandson will need to contact T-Mobile, provide them with the ESN # from the back of this phone. They will then switch the service to this phone. You will find ESN number behind the phone, starting with D or H or A (like hex or dec or Meid #)

How do I get my phone to only use extended network? I'm in an area that doesn't have verizon wireless and the LG phone battery is being drained and dropping calls like never before....

Go into the programming menu...Hit either menu 0 and then for service code '000000' OR hit ##77647268300 and press send then '000000'(depends on software version) then go to network settings and band preference, set that to 'Cell Only' and you'll be good to go. Some features like pix and flix msging or Get It Now may not work while in this mode

I do not get any service on my lg shine ke970. why other phones around me have full service. We are both on AT&T pay as you go plans.

Okay, it is that the phone is probably set to 3G or 2100mhz ONLY, while you want Quad-Band EDGE & 3G. Basically we want to change a hidden setting to make sure we have all that we can selected, the options are like 1, 3G only 2, 3G & GSM 3, ???

I dont remember the options exactly but it is the one that has both GSM or EDGE AND 3G. So type this in exactly like you are dialing in a phone number

2945 # * 9701 #

You should get an error message and then you will be in the engineering mode (also called the test menu).

In this menu, you can either do a factory reset, which will erase everything in the phone. That should fix it.

If you would rather not reset everything in the phone find the option in that menu marked "connection band" or "band frequency" or "network band or frequency."

Once you are in that part of the menu, select it so it has all it can, if it says GSM, or EDGE, or GPRS, or 3G or HSDPA, you want BOTH, whatever both is, you want both as your option.

Good luck!! sorry my memory is a little off. If you can't find that part of the menu remember a factory reset, which is in that menu, should fix it all.

I want 2 use LG rd3500 CDMA handset as a general CDMA phone for any CDMA network.How can I do it? Currently I use Reliance CDMA on this phone but I want 2 use another CDMA (Tata Indicom) on this phone.

You can't. CDMA works on on a different frequency (band width). GSM (AU) networks operate at 900Mhz,1800Mhz or 2100Mhz as 3G. Sorry about the bad news
