    *228 will FRY YOUR REZOUND

    You all probably know this already.


    For newbies like me: Verizon says just turn on the new phone and it initializes from the SIM Card. Sim Card does it all. Never ever dial *228 because it will fry the Rezound, and it will NOT be covered under warranty.

    Moderator update: There is no actual proof that dialing *228 will harm your phone. Some will say it does and some will say it's harmless.

    Don't know if this is actually possible, if you dial *228, like I have a few times, a message comes up saying that you don't need to do this because a VZW Sim Card is present. I've done this just for the heck of it on many different ROMs, ICS and GB, and so far, my phone still works.

    It could damage the sim card, your phone will be fine, i still wouldn't do it because it serves no benefit.
    There was a time in the early Thunderbolt days where a Verizon Tech would suggest it, for whatever reason, either forgetting or not knowing that it wasnt required. I read on here somewhere that a few people blamed bad sims on 228, i don't know if it was ever confirmed. Verizon will give you a new sim, pretty much any time you ask.

    I'm shutting this thread down. I don't want things to get out of hand with hysteria or anything. As Jparsons stated, you can potentially damage the 4G SIM card using *228 but that is the case on any 4G phone. There is currently no verifiable proof that dialing *228 will harm your phone.

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.
