i got my droid in the mail today.....decided it was awesome and time to activate it. called verizon gave them the phone code and they said no....its still activated from another user. I guess this means if i cant get the original owner to deactivate it that the meid is dirty and this thing is junk?? ive also heard the activation wont go through if you had a dumbphone (which i do) with no data plan. anyway this could be part of the problem?
