Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

LG 8300 vx

I have activate this "brand new from ebay" phone with our service (verizon), and when I go to initialize it (*228), it cuts off after the automated person comes on (in about 5 seconds). It will accept voice mail and txt msgs, but will not stay connected for more than 5 seconds. Verizon did everything they can. Do you think the phone is defective?

SOURCE: I have freestanding Series 8 dishwasher. Lately during the filling cycle water hammer is occurring. How can this be resolved

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
goodluck!

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.

Initial Programming Needed on Samsung Renown with Verizon


Verizon customer service isn't always very helpful, but the verizon website can be. Try clicking phones&devices under the support section. Once you select what type of phone you have, you will see that it says "activate phone" on the left side of the page. This will guide you through the activation of your phone, and the instructions are pretty clear. Hope this helps.

UNLOCK CODE


LG VX 8300 Reset Lock Code To Default If you have your phone serviced with Verizon this should work. Dial *228 then push send. You will get 3 options to choose from. 1. To program your phone. 2. To update your roaming capabilities. Can't remember 3rd option. If you choose 1st option, program your phone you will be told to hold while your phone is being programmed. When finished your phone should turn off then on again itself. Your lock code is then set to default. (last 4 digits of phone #)

My phone will not program


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.
