    Very excited to get home from work today to get my new RAZR that shipped yesterday. I have one question thought, if Verizon isn't selling until tomorrow at 11:11, we will be able to activate the phone today?

    You should, but if it's anything like the Bionic's first day or two, it could be a slow activation - heck, the Bionic is still slow to activate sometimes.

    They should be able to activate. Mine is stuck in some sort of loop with the 4G activation, I was told twice that it should activate after midnight. I was assured that when i wake up tomorrow morning(yea, right, Like I will not check at 12:01!) It will be up and running and waiting for the google authentication.

    We shall see, needless to say, I am very dissapointed that i can't get it set up tonight...

    I received mine today and have officially switched over from the OG Droid :) Comparatively, it's a bigger footprint, it's very fast, big bright display, web browser seems so much faster... haven't tested video, camera, or sound yet - moving some mp3s over to hear the audio - I loved winamp on the OG.

    Mine came today around noon, activated around one, and I've been using it all day. That doesn't seem right that you can't.

    Try this

    If you are having problems activating your Droid RAZR TAKE THESE STEPS:

    1. TURN YOUR OLD PHONE OFF!!!
    2. LOG IN TO MY VERIZON AND CLICK ACTIVATE THE DEVICE.
    3. ENSURE SIM CARD IS PROPERLY INSTALLED.
    4. TURN THE RAZR ON!!!
    5. WAIT FOR THE PHONE TO ACTIVATE THIS WILL TAKE APPROXIMATELY 5 MINUTES TO COMPLETE.
    6. RESTART PHONE
    7. STILL HAVE PROBLEMS PM OR MESSAGE ME!!

    All is good, as they said, shortly after midnight, I was able to activate. Loving the phone! May have to visit verizon store, noticing some 'discoloration" when i look at a dark background, not too big a deal, but for the price, and since i will have it for two years, think i want to make sure i have a "perfect" new phone..
