I haven't seen this in any forum yet but my phone is randomly dialing #22899 to update 3g. I am on my third phone and second sim card. Verizon is not telling me it has something to do with the cell towers on their side. So far they are telling me that I am the only one this is happening to. My wife has the same phone and hasn't had any problems. Any help would be great.
At least I'm not the only one. According to Verizon by dialing #22899 it damages your sim card and affects your signal strength. My first phone was doing it for about a week and my battery was discharging at a rate of about 15% and hour and at times I would have to wait a minute or so for signal. After receiving my new phone I lose about 10% every two hours.
This has happened to me about 3 times since I got the phone on launch day. It has only done it when I had zero cell service, underground in the NY subway. I immediately switch the phone to airplane mode and the call ends.
