network authentication failed
ChristinaCesare

I was getting "network authentication failed" when trying to send pictures last night, which was still a problem this morning. I then called *228 and pressed 1, and my problem was solved. A few hours later however, I now have the same problem, and cannot be solved by any combination of *228 ex. 1 or 2 ; powering my phone off ; or taking the battery out. Please help!

If at all possible, I would NOT like to restore my phone.

What phone do you have?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

The Pantech Hotshot. I also cannot make calls. It says "this call cannot be completed as dialed."

They don't even know what they know.  IF this is happening b/c I don't have an idiotic 5g/k or whatever the **** they call it then I don't care b/c I will NEVER get one of those.  Why?  Because the radiation is way higher on those and they don't care, nobody cares because it seems like everyone wants cancer.  I would rather watch all of you die than buy a "smart"phone and waste away like a uneducated loser like all of you.
