    I have the r2d2 starwars phone

    it is running an odd version of the firmware. after some searching, i dug up this tutorial;
    HERE

    i got as far as flashing in the new sbf file as per this tutorial that i was linked to in the first tutorial
    HERE

    everything went smoothly, but now that i am needing to activate it on the network, it acts strange.
    it calls, and after prompting me to enter my phone number, it says a bunch of stuff about open hours and then says that if my phone is lost or stolen i should press 2. then it hangs up on me, and says that activation was unsuccessful.....


    what do i do? did i just kill my phone?

    haha solved


    it turns out Verizon activation system is down for maintenance.... They just didn't bother putting a warning message on the activation menu

    Did you get your phone activated yet? I'm trying to activate a phone online, so far it appears to be still down.
