after i got my droid about a year ago, all i wanted to do was root it. I didnt read enuf about it and the effects of messing up, which i did and "bricked my phone".....so what happened, I was using an RSD lite method....very dumb and unplugged the phone to early (of course messing it up). Finally got it to boot back up and when i had to make the call to re-activate it my service was through U.S. Cellular!?! Took it to verizon, they said that was weird and tried to re flash it with their stock system...didnt work, they called their tech support still couldnt get it fixed. They sent me a warranty phone and didnt want or take the old phone back. It works just fine and i use it as my "test" phone. It is still on U.S. cellular service though. Dont eally need it activated but if anyone knows how, i would love to know??
