    They told me the hard drive in the phone was broken and I just needed to get a new phone

    Same issue... I cannot get it to go BACK to "Initial Programming" either. The signal indicator has the "Telephone Pole" symbol as usual, and right next to it is a red colored circle with the backslash through it, kinda like a "No Smoking" sign (picture the cigarette behind the red circle with the backslash through it).

I work for metro and yes we treat our customers like shi* because you all are shi*. I dont even own a effin metro phone but I sell the shi* all day. work arounds because I hate the company and customers... if you live in the city change your address to outside the city to lower your monthly cost. this avoids city taxes which could be 5-$7. and shop online for prices then go buy a phone because you might get caught up spending 10-$40 more on a phone. fu*kers I hate you metro customers so take this tip and shove it up your a-hole

What does it mean when my phone is saying it needs intial programming. i droped in water but it still turned on and seemed to be be working then it started saying it need intial programming on the screen....


Hello,

when a phone drops in water it needs to be serviced before use, cause the water has damaged the phone board.

service the phone so that the water in the phone will dry up completely.

Have a nice day.

Network problem ... does not show any sim signals


Have you tried searching for service manually from the phone network settings?

If you have and there is still no service, then I think your phone needs to be flashed.

Take your phone to a qualified phone expert and he/she would use a nokia software to reinstall the programs on your phone. When the program is reinstalled, your phone would surely have service.

Best wishes.

How to fix my NAM on my samsung sch 700 cell phone


OMG my phone is doing that too.... i believe that you can take it to your Cell phone service provider and have them unlock it for you. to do this you must go to a technician. the problem that happened was that i knocked my phone off the network so basically its usless at this point so i will need a new phone unless they find out the code so if they cant fix it your going to have to get a new phone
