    I just got a Kyocera Jax phone from Assurance Wireless. It's a very simple phone, but beyond me, technically speaking:)

    I have a phone number, it has been activated, and I have minutes in my account. When I power up, the screen says dormant across the top, altho I can use it to make and receive calls. I have a feeling that "dormant" is some optionally applied setting. I just want to know what it means, and if I can clear the word off the screen?

    Well, I do not, however it took just a bit of googling to help.

    The only think I can find is a GREETING BANNER- On my (useless phone) my greeting says ....BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD

    On your phone currently it may say -DORMANT because you have not giving it a personalization? I don't know ask anyone here - I Have one gene dedicated to technology and it's at the shallow end of my pool.

    Anyway -page 19 - said

    GO to
    GREETING BANNER
    EDIT
    BACKKEY TOCLEAR
