Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 3 months ago.

On your gmail account information, it shows the phone number ending with the two digits 64. Is that your old phone number?

On that email address, it shows that the phone number ends with the two digits 01.

Please be very careful with the spelling of your gmail email address.

So the phone number ending with 01 is not working.

Is your gmail email address currently working on the computer?

Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 3 months ago.

  4. Press the Power button to restart into Recovery mode.
    You'll see an image of an Android robot with a red exclamation mark.
  5. From the "No Command" screen (Android figure lying on his back), press and hold the Power button then press and release the Volume Up button to display the menu options.
  6. Select "wipe data/factory reset".
    Note: Use the Volume buttons to highlight and the Power button to select.
  7. Select Yes -- delete all user data.
    Note: Allow several seconds for the factory data reset process to complete.
  8. Select reboot system now.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I cannot wait . I am helping my sister to get her phone working, now I need to go back to TX tomorrow and this phone needs to be working before I go. so can you all help us fix it or not?
Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 3 months ago.

I'm sorry; I was researching for any more troubleshooting. Is there a SIM card for your phone? If yes, do you have another phone you can insert the SIM card to in order to get the phone number ending with 01 working temporarily first?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Consumer Cellular told me not to put the sim card in the old phone
Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 3 months ago.

Do you still have the old phone?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
but it would have to turn it on to use it
Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 3 months ago.

Google needs to verify your gmail account by sending a text message to your phone ending with 01.

Can you turn off both the phones, then take out the SIM card from the new phone and insert it to the old phone, then turn it on and see if it's still working fine on the old phone?

Please let me know. Thank you,

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
don't work
Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 3 months ago.

After inserting the SIM card to the old phone, and turning on the old phone, what does it say or show? Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I have given up and since you all could not fix my problem l would appreciate your " not" charging me for no jelp!
