I haven't seen that problem myself but it seems to be somewhat common according to what I see googling it. One possible thing to try is:
-From the home screen, tap the Menu key.
-Tap Call Settings (aka Call, Phone, or Phone Settings)
-Tap Reject With Message (aka Ignore with Message)

Hi. I looked through this threat but was unable to find an answer so I may have just missed it. I just purchased a droid razr maxx with a clean ESN and removed the 4g sim card and did a factory reset. I used the bypass method to get past the screen the phone gets stuck on asking to activate sim and I essentially have the phone running in an iPod touch mode. I'm leaving for Madrid in a week and was wondering if I will be able to put an international sim card in and just follow the steps mentioned on this thread to activate it without having setup the phone with the 4g sim card in it. Or would I have to have to have setup the phone with the sim card in and then removed it.
I don't know if it's a silly question but just wanted to cover my bases and ask before I'm out of the country and have no choice to use the 4g sim card in it. Thanks!
Jazz, you are right... I don't think that question has been asked yet. I am not certain whether it would need to be activated with a Verizon sim prior to using a foreign sim but my best guess is no because essentially when you go through the process of activating the foreign sim, it is basically re-activating the phone on a completely different network, carrier and plan. Bsweetness probably knows the answer for certain but, to me, it doesn't make sense that it would have to be previously activated.
