    Watch out for *22890... I've had data features drop (reset) from this one. It hasnt happened all the time and only features. (Txt pkg, vpak, etc.) Slowly watch my DAPT fall. I personally use *22899.

    I'm trying to *228 on my Blackberry Tour, but it won't let me. Any ideas why?

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Never mind...found what I was doing wrong. The Tour has a dedicated sym key for symbols like the asterisk.

    *228 is totallly buggered up! I still can't update a phone with *228. It says equipment activation pending and won't activate. *22899 won't work at all and just hangs up. What's going on?

    Does this info still apply to our phones today?

    *22898 and *22888 is for Verizon INPulse Activations and ESN swaps, they are identical.

    and *22899 is the ****, I love it, it programs within about 30 seconds.

    *22892-93 is the OLD *228 Menu System(you can interrupt the lady) before the ESN swaps and ETC.

    *22894 is a weird test system probably for engineers or possibly back door to Call Centers(?)

    *22895 is a Full Phone\NAM program w\ PRL (*228 opt 1)

    *22896 is a PRL Update (*228 opt 2)

    *22897 is a Full Phone\NAM Prog w\ PRL (*228 opt 1)


    I am MOST interested in *22894 someone please elaborate on this.

    On Env3 - *228 won't update PRL - msg. to call customer service for help to program
    *22896 - connect but won't finish programming - same msg. as above (maybe b/c I switched off EVDO to 1X only ??)
    *22899 - that DID it, took less than 1 minute - reset/restart the phone, EV is now ON again along with 1X below. It worked, at least, for *228 purposes. Now, I need to go into the secret/programming menu to change the mode to 1X only (no using EV nor using data plan, and it's good for extending battery's standby time)

    In my area (Phoenix): *228=default provider depending on SID programmed. Regardless of SID or PRL, force particular provider OTA: *22801=Verizon *22803=Sprint (cust srv rec, no ota) *22804=Cricket *22800=Alltel (Verizon Other). *2289x options as described above except if x=1, VZW. x=4, Cricket, etc...

    I noticed that *228 opt 3 is gone. That's happening with that?

    Since this thread was started in 2008, do the original *228 options still work for the same things?
