When va exceeds phi(build-in), the diode will be forward biased. and you gonna see lot amount of current. The junction can only take 0.7v, after that, it's hardly you can increase voltage applied to the junctin(otherwise, you can damage the diode).
Check any book about how the diode is operated, you will find the answer.
