Question about Verizon Communications LG enV Cell Phone - Silver

1 Answer

International roaming i live in Pennsylvania, USA and I was told that before I leave on vacation to Aruba to get international roaming I was to press *228 and pick option 2 and it would give me international roaming so I could use my phone to call home. I did just that and when I got to Aruba the phone says it is searching for service for two days. What else am I suppose to do or is there no verizon service in Aruba?

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!

Problem with only receiving intermittent notification of SMS messages, even from the same mobile


It is probably not your phone but your carrier. Contact them and complain!!

Sometime updating the "roaming feature" will help.

Here is the info for Verizon, but many other carriers are similar:

Hope this helps. J

Updating Preferred Roaming List(PRL)


Verizon Wireless is constantly advancing its roaming technology to provide you with superior roaming capabilities. By updating your PRL every few weeks, you can be sure you have access to our enhancements. As a result you may experience:
  • Longer battery life
  • Fewer dropped or blocked calls
  • Clear, crisp connections in more areas across the United States
  • Ability to connect to the digital network in more parts of the country

Instructions for updating your PRL:

  1. Power on your phone within any Verizon Wireless digital service area.
  2. Dial *228 and then press SEND (this call is airtime free).
  3. When prompted, press option 2 to update your phone's roaming capabilities
    (the update may take up to 2 minutes).
  4. Once completed, a confirmation message will appear to inform you that your phone has been re-programmed with the new PRL.

Why can't people phone my phone please


  • Verizon ??
  • Dial *228 and push "Send" to complete the call to the activation service. A screen will appear over the call timer that says "Programming in Progress..." and you should hear a voice recording say, "Welcome to Verizon Wireless Over-The-Air Programming."
  • Press 1 for initial programming. This option is used if the phone has been deactivated or is being activated for the first time.
  • Press 2 to update roaming information and to download a free software upgrade to enable better roaming coverage. Pressing 2 and choosing this option will assign your phone to another tower that should enable better reception, especially when roaming

I cannot send or recieve calls on my phone, unless its in roaming


You may not have coverage in your area unless your roaming, call your cellphone carrier and ask if you have service at the location! if you do you may have an issue on your carriers end, call tech support and ask whats going on.
If you can make calls whilst roaming, there should be no reason you can't when on your normal carrier.

I tried entering *228 but my phones send button is not working. its touchscreen it doesnt work. please help


why are you using this update? hopefully not for a repair? *228 is only for updating an internal list of towers so you remain on the VZW network instead of roaming.

My razor cell keeps roming


Try dialing *228 to update your roaming preferences. It should connect to verizon's automated roaming update service.

Unfortunately, it won't normally update if you are not already on a Verizon tower. If *228 will not connect, also try *22804, which attempts to push it through to the nearest Verizon tower, or *22890.

If you do get through, it will give you a welcome message, and ask you to select option 1 to reprogram, or option 2 to update roaming preferences. You will need to select option 2.

If you do not get through, unfortunately you will have to stop by a Verizon Wireless Corporate owned store and speak with their tech department. They will be able to tell you if you have the latest PRL (preferred roaming list) and also check to see if you have the latest firmware (which could be part of the issue). They will have the tools to manually reprogram the roaming listing in the phone.
