    Ported number problems

    So today I went to best buy and saw the phones they had from Verizon. Well I bought the Samsung galaxy S3. I'm in love with the phone but I had my number ported over. I don't get texts or calls. My mercury is off but still in service. Could that be the problem?

    grats salas. hope you don't leave our forums! the sgs3 is a beautiful piece of hardware. the port-out issue could be that your merc is still receiving data. try taking the battery out or programming it off the network (dial ##626* enter 333333 as pass key, set mdn and min to all 000000000) then somewhere in the galaxy menu is a way to re-sync it with the verizon network similar to or maybe even the same as *228

    Thank you I'll try that and I WILL not leave the forums. *228 just tells me something about my SIM card.

    333333 won't work on a Verizon phone. Use 000000. If you have everything but talk and text it's def a programming issue.
