View Full Version : 7290 Service Issues!

So i just got a 7290 on ebay and love the phone, but it's no good to me because it gets NO service. It comes on for like 5 minutes then it's gone. Says it's searching for service, then says it has none. Anyone got any clues?

Maybe its your area?
Sometimes you have to call in a number to upgrade your signal to the nearest cell towers
For example with Verizon its *228

*228 only works on CDMA phones

Contact the person you bought the BB from and tell them it is defective. They probably will not be surprised.
