    Hi, I just bought off ebay a vx6000, tried to activate it with prepaid which it did activate just fine so the ESN is good, but when im calling out and when the rep is trying to call me, i have no sound at all, do not hear nothing, when i call out it shows calling, but i hear nada thing, and i do have 4 bars of signal and it gives me a "call failed" its like the towers are not seeing my phone even if i have great signal .. any suggestions ?

    take the battery out and then reinstall just to be sure, it does sound like it's a defective phone they sold you....

    how long did you leave the battery out?
    try leaving it out over night, then fully charging it the next day, and try again

    that won't make a difference, as long as you power cycle the phone, that only helps if you have liquid damage and it doesn't always work.

    Shannon assuming your on Verizon's network, try re-programming your phone just to be sure:

    dial *228 wait for the prompt and then choose option 1

    Take the battery off and look on the inside of the battery pack. There is should be a red and white dot on the bottom. If the dot is all pink that means the phone has had water damage. I believe the new 8100 has the same system also.
