    getting weird Verizon error messages on pp??

    My Verizon LG VS950 (also called LG Intuition) was put on pp, no problems. I get service, 3g & 4g, but about 50% of the time (whether I'm texting, calling or going online) I get this error message "Alert, your phone is not eligible for this service", an 800 number to call and 'error message #220'. I can close out that popup and proceed with whatever I'm doing, but it's a real nuisance.

    The 800 number if of course Verizon, and they won't talk to me, told me to call pp. After speaking with 4 different people at pp, they reset my phone somehow and the messages went away for about five minutes, then came back.

    Does anyone have any idea on how I can get rid of these error messages? PP is not going to/able to help me. I love my new big phone and want it to work without that constant bother.

    Thanks in advance for ANY help you can give me!

    Simple cause. Some Verizon app on the phone is trying to phone home. You're using verizon towers but don't actually have a verizon account. When that app can't authenticate, it throws an error. To fix, root the phone and disable all the verizon apps.
