OK, I was thinking that the following might be a solution – what do you think?
1.) Do a battery pull (with the phone on).
2.) Do a full, factory reset (not a data reset).
3.) After the phone completely restarts, add a contact for “Verizon” with the number: *22899
4.) Manually dial that contact from the contact list.
5.) Let the phone completely activate.
6.) Pull the battery again.
Does anyone think that this will stop the phone from automatically dialing *22899 and keep the PRL stuck at 52686?
I can tell you that I did a full, factory reset over the weekend. After it restarted, I went to my settings and found that the PRL was already updated to 52686 (and it’s been that way ever since). Last week, after it updated to 52686, there was a time when it had reverted back to 15109, and then it went back to 52686 on its own.
Anyway, is this worth trying? I really don’t want to have to do a full, factory reset again. Although, it may be worth a shot before I just go get another one from Best Buy.
I just don’t want to have to go through the chance of getting a phone with vertical banding, and I have to talk them into putting on a replacement ZAGG screen protector.
