    FTM mode and no service

    My LG vx9800 just shut off on its own and when I turned it back on it was on FTM mode. I dont know what it is but I have no service and like my phone reset itself all the stuff saved to my phone is gone- my memory card is fine though. What wrong with it and how do I fix it?

    I got out of FTM the other day by simply turning standalone mode on then off:
    Menu / Settings & Tools / System / Standalone Mode.

    Good luck!

    Hmmm, not sure about this one. Would *228, option 1 fix that?

    go to security and reset factory settings, that should do the trick, if it still says service required you have a prl, or programming problem

    It's Factory Test Mode, and is supposedly a very good way to turn your phone into a brick. For what it's worth, the QPST FTM App help file says:

    The Factory Test Mode (FTM) Radio Frequency (RF) Evaluation Graphical User Interface (GUI) software is used to to test a phone. FTM RF Evaluation GUI is an application used to control a QUALCOMM phone such as a Subscriber Unit Reference Design (SURF) or Form Factor Accurate (FFA) for testing RF in three system modes—CDMA 1x, GSM, and WCDMA.

    This application requires Dual-Mode Subscriber Station (DMSS) or Advanced Mode Subscriber Software (AMSS) software with FTM built into it. The FTM mode must be enabled before using the CDMA 1x, GSM, and WCDMA RF controls.

    FTM is a mode of operation that allows a user to perform diagnostic or design verification functionality by exposing functions not discretely available to the user in DMSS mode. FTM does not provide the ability to make phone calls and is not driven by the DMSS Call Processing State Machine.
