    A Rooting Problem never discussed?.....Porting old phone number after the root

    OK I bought my Droid a month ago and my contract with T-Mobile didn't expire until yesterday. So today I went through the motions with Verizon to port my old phone # over so I could continue to use it.

    I currently have my old Blackberry forwarded to my newly issued Droid
    #.

    Since I bought the Droid, I have installed BB V1 and yesterday v1.1 .

    When I try to call out using the Droid, I get a Verizon recording telling me that it they" are sorry but they cant currently authenticate my phone...Would I like to wait for an operator to make a collect call?"

    What do I do next? Call Verizon? Reset to original Nandroid config and then call them? My T-Mobile cell no longer works either.....

    Thanks,
    Marc

    Have you activated your phone? *228 option 1?

    I know when my buddy ported his number from AT&T to Verizon, he had all sorts of problems, but it sounds like you just havent activated your phone yet.

    So yes or no on reactivation?

    Also, you dont need to flash your phone back to stock just to call Verizon and get support over the phone.

    Please understand I ma a noobie so bear with me. Rooted phone was working fine this morning. So now you want me to dial *228 option 1 and activate assuming it will activate to my prior phone #?

    thx,

    Haha, no worries. If you ever have signal issues, dial *228, option 2 to update your tower information. Glad you got it working.

    My bet is that things got borked when your number expired/flipped/whatever.
