My step-dad just gave me a cell phone, a motorola timeport, I don't know the model #, it may be P 8097.. I want to know how to reset it, as I am going ot put a plan of my own on it.. the cell phone I used to have had the option, but I cannot find it in this one.. Is there a way, or should I let the dealer do it?

What is your current provider? Is there a simchip in the phone? Does your current phone have a simchip?

I dunno.. At this time, I have no cell phone set up for me, but I want to get this one set up.. I don't know what a sim chip is, but the previous provider on this phone was Ameritech/Cingular..

2) Step on it really hard

Go to an AUTHORIZED dealer and they will do it for you. If your old phone was a Motorola they can also transfer your Phone Book to the new phone.

Chris, if you sticking with the same carrier, which I guess is VoiceStream, you don't need to do anything. Just bring the phone in with you to a VoiceStream place, have them activate it with your number and you're golden.

From my months as CSR at Verizon Wireless (Can you hear me now? YES! SHUT UP!) I can tell you that when you take your Timeport in to a Cingular center to get new service, they will program the phone with the new number. You could by a connecter kit to load the phone book from another phone. But you will need to get service thru Cingular if you want to use that phone.

Back from my ban.

I suggest you, if you have the option, don't go with Cingular.

Their coverage isn't too extensive, and since you are now an F/A, you'll be travelling quite a bit. But it's up to you.
