    Was switching roms and now my phone wants to be activated but *228 wont work. Im from US but am in Canada right now so that might have something to do with it. I tried the manual activation that peter alfonso has on his site but I dont know what my phones min # is. Can anyone help...I have a droid 1

    Give the VZW customer service folks (*611) a call. Tell them you are in Canada and want to update everything (options 1 and 2).


    Hope you get your phone going.

    Not sure this will correct the issue but restore a good backup and see if that will get you running then when you return to the US flash the new rom.

    Mike thanks for your help. When I restored an old backup it was still asking to be activated. My wife called and the verizon rep told me to do this on my droid.

    Tap phone icon
    then enter, ##7764726
    Tap phone icon
    SPC passcode
    tap white box (I'm not sure what I wrote here, but I know it's tap white something)
    then enter, 000000
    verify
    user activate
    delete existing MIN#
    enter your cell number
    delete existing MDN#
    enter your cell number
    tap cdma system id box
    30412
    press done
    then home key

    thanks for your help and hope this helps anyone else out if they get stuck like me. Yes my phone is back to normal now haha.:icon_ banana:
