Phone unlocking...Free Service?????????/

I've heard something about pressing #5625* + END to get the unlock code for the phone. I got the code and I put it in. But what is that supposed to do? I heard something about getting free service? I'm confused. Can someone please tell me what "unlocking" a phone actually means? And please explain this free service thing to me.

I have been told by a lot of people that this phone is horrible. That it has dropped call glitches, caller ID/pic ID glitches, is this true. I also found out that VZW is supposed to be pulling the 8900 off the shelves due to all the glitches within the week. I was thinking of getting this phone, but is it worth it?

Phone noises/messaging/service

Hi, I recently bought an Audiovox CDM8900 from my local Verizon Wireless place. I had some questions about it that I couldn't find the answers to in the manual, and I thought you guys might be able to help me.

Sorry if I'm repeating a topic that was already covered.

Does the etiquette mode turn off all sounds when it is activated? If not, how do I set the phone to stay muted all the time? How do I keep etiquette mode on? When I switch etiquette mode on, and turn the phone off, the phone forgets that I set it to it, and it makes that little tune and all the regular noises after I turn it on? How do I turn off that annoying tune when I turn off and on the phone? Also, will my carrier, Verizon, charge me money if I send pictures? W...

8900 vs. LG4500

Will be switching to VZW in a few weeks. Trying to decide between the Audiovox 8900 and LG4500. Both phones have a speakerphone. The 8900 is tri-mode while the 4500 is all digital. Speakerphone on 4500 is much better. Will I miss analog if I go with the 8900. I live on Long Island and frequently travel to Florida and California. Which phone do you recommend??

Bad switch??? Phone got wet.

Four days ago, I hit some tennis balls against the wall the other day, it started raining, and I picked up my 8900 from the ground and the phione acted crazy. It now works but the off/on/hang-up button does not work right. I can terminate a call by closing the shell but, all day today cannot even turn the phone on.

Any tricks to truning phone on w/o using the on\off button???

Verizon 611 sent me a Verizon store where they saw the PINK DOT on the battery apparetnly indicating that the phone got wet (how did that happen?) and they said therefore the warrany was VOID.

If the only issue is this one butto and I can figure a work-around, I do not have to replace the phpne. Any ideas appreciated.
