DONT DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just had to about 3 hrs ago and it has taken me that long to get my phone service back on. The problem they told me was that your phone has to talk to verizon towers and it cant do that in the extended network bc its bounces off other towers. Like right now im deployed to alaska and here your services bounces off alaska communication towers so it wouldnt activate the service. It took me about 2 1/2 hrs on the phone with them and then they had me go into it and change some numbers around and it was a 50/50 shot that it would work and luckily i was on the 50 part that was good . but in short just dont do it or you will be stuck with a phone that wont work!!!!
