We keep our cell phones with us all day every day but does your cell phone have the latest software and roaming updates? This is not something one normally thinks about but it is important for high quality reception and to reduce your chances of receiving roaming charges.

To update your software:

  1. Make sure your cell phone is on and at the home screen, displaying the date and the time
  2. Press *228 and the (SEND) button
  3. When prompted press the number 1
  4. After approximately 60 seconds the automated system will let you know “your phone has been programmed successfully” and you can press the (END) button
  5. Your phone should power itself off and on, resetting itself
  6. Your update should be complete
