    Try *228 (no 99) if still wont work log on to my verizon and click activate phone. Enter your info. Then try *228 again. Worked for me.

    Don't panic. I had similar issues.

    First, the number is *22899 or *228 NOT ##22899.

    Secondly, Verizon's network seemed to be having trouble reactivating phone for a while. I updated my baseband at about 3AM Pacific time this morning and kept getting "Activation unsuccessful" messages. I saw lots of others posting that they were having similar problems around the same time even though people who had tried it earlier were successful. I went to bed and when I woke up my phone was able to activate on the first try.

    Give it another go using *22899 and see if it works now.
