*228 upgrade feature?


Apr 11, 2006, 12:18 AM
I had a Verizon Rep tell me to call *228 every couple months to update cell site and software through the mother ship.

Has anyone ever had anything bad happen as a result of calling this? Any good comments?

it doesn't change anything on your phone. doing this just tells your phone where new cell phone towers may be so it can utilize them. you may get better coverage and less roaming afterwards, but it doesn't upgrade or change your phone software.

Agreed, I do *228 about every 2 months (option 2 after the initial voice prompt). Never had a problem.

*22899 is the same thing, but you cut through any menus and go right to the updates.

just make sure u do it in ur home area and not while ur already roaming or traveling because most carriers use *228 and u just might end up with that companies prl. ive see it happen before.
