Program your IP-830w by Samsung

Last Updated: Nov 18, 2013

You can use these programming instructions if you have a new phone or a used phone activated by a previous owner, and you have completed the Activate your new phone process in My Sprint. If so, you should refer to the page you printed showing the codes you need for these instructions to work.

To program your phone:

  1. Turn on your phone. To turn on your phone, press the Release Lock button located on the lower left side of the phone. NOTE: If it has not already been performed, you will be prompted to tap targets to align the screen.
  2. To display the dial pad, press the green Phone key once.
  3. If you have a new phone that has never been activated, follow the instructions below:
    • Press ## followed by the one-time 6-digit code, located in the Programming Instructions section of the Activate your new phone page, followed by an additional #. (Example 6-digit code: ##123456#. The last # entered will not show on the display.) NOTE: If the phone portion of the device is not turned on, the device will ask if you would like to turn on the Wireless Radio. Tap Yes, and then enter ## one-time 6-digit code # once again.
  4. If you have a previously activated phone, a phone that is new to you but not brand new, follow the instructions below:
    • Press ## followed by the secondary 6-digit code, located in the Programming Instructions section of the Activate your new phone page, followed by an additional #. (Example 6-digit code: ##123456#. The last # entered will not show on the display.) NOTE: If the phone portion of the device is not turned on, the device will ask if you would like to turn on the Wireless Radio. Tap Yes, and then enter ## secondary 6-digit code # once again.
  5. Using the Navigation key, select Edit, and then press the OK key. NOTE: The Phone Number (MDN) field appears.
  6. Using the QWERTY keypad, enter the 10-digit MDN. NOTE: There is no need to hold down the Number Lock key; the field is defaulted for numbers.
  7. Press the OK key.
  8. Enter the 10-digit MSID, and then press the OK key.
  9. Select Done, and then press the OK key. The screen will return to the phone pad and restart your phone. This completes the programming.

NOTE: It can take up to four hours to complete the activation process and for your phone to begin working. If the provisioning process does not complete within five hours, contact us.
