I got a metro phone,samsung is said "initial programing" after I active my phone.can you tell me how can I solve it?

I am assuming you got the phone from either online or calling them directly, there is usually a peice of paper stating what you have to do, if not. Try dialing *22899 if that doesn't work then call up customer care they will be able to solve that for you with no problem

Initial programming needed

That means you have to activate it. somehow it got deactivated. i would call verizon and have them reactivate it.

The message the phone is displaying is completely normal, Your carrier is most likely verizon so it is a CDMA network. Meaning your phone needs to be programmed for the first time with the proper MDN (mobile directory number) and the MSID. These numbers enable the phone to connect to the network to make and recieve calls. Every phone for a CDMA network will display this message before it recieves its initial programming with these two numbers.
