    Cannot activate phone after update install

    Can anyone plz help? 2.1 firmware update-1 I have followed the directions to a tee. I used RSD lite and i installed the 64-bit drivers (i am running in 64). I am using the sbf file given it passes with 100% only after it says manual reboot then i have to restart w/ boot loader for it to complete. I install update.zip to the root. Hold the X, restore, install, allow, update. Restart. When I go to activate it says welcome to US Cellular even though I use Verizon. It will not let me auto activate. I have gone in and manually activated through the programming menu. I have a triangle up by my signal strenght like u get when the phone is not activated and I no longer recieve 3G data. Has anyone heard of this. This is my second time around with this same problem on two different phones (new one is a warrenty) Is there anyone that can help me with this.

    Ok..makeing sure.. Sounds like you have done to many steps to me.

    All i did was Run RSD lite, Click on your SPF file, run it. Go into your phone and click allow install of update.zip, then install it and then Reboot..

    Then it should be all down hill from there.

    Which sbf are you given? Im thinking your problem lies within sbf but i need more info to fiqure it out. What sbf did you flash? The sprecovery, or a whole 2.1 sbf, etc...?
    Turtle bit me.I thought they were slow....they snap so fast. ................. <3

    I'm thinking with all the new activations of Droid X's and D2's Verizon is having issues with the automated activation servers. You must do it manually but you have to know which roaming market you are in.

    I already have the codes for my phone and I have the access to user programming menu the only thing I can see that has anything to do with US cellular is in the test mobile menu after u enable the test and scroll through it says I am using us celluar band and my wifes droid says the same thing (her phone hasn't been touched). Is not getting any hdr connection during test.
