Bumping this for more info. I activated mine yesterday with no issues, texting was fine. Then this morning (have not turned the phone off since activating) I sent a text and they got it as a weird number. The battery pull seemed to work, but I'm wondering if anyone has had the issue since they did a battery pull, or if anyone got it a day after texting was fine for them. If this is an ongoing thing where it happens randomly.. that will suck.
