been trying to activate for over a week, nothing has worked...
I have this phone, obviously. I got it from my brother, who got it from our other brother, who bought it... most likely used.
I'm also obviously with virgin mobile.
I've tried the online activation. I've called virgin mobile a dozen times. they can't seem to get my phone working. my virgin mobile account says the phone is activated, but I still have service on my old phone and only sporadic 3G on my V. I cannot send messages, make calls, etc. from the V.
I have replaced the MDN and MSID with my phone number and the one they gave me, plus I've tried replacing it with 1s, 5s and 0s. I've done everything virgin mobile has told me to do, and it still doesn't work. they gave me a bullshit excuse of 'there's an outage in your area' WHEN MY OLD PHONE STILL WORKS.
I get error code 06 07 5920 usually, when I try to activate the phone through the phone's little activation application. from what I've read, it has something to do with my internet/wifi connection on the phone. my 3G goes out when I attempt to activate.
please help me, I need my phone because I'm in a school that is twenty miles away from my house and if I don't have a working phone (which I kind of do? my old phone still works...) and something happens, I'm screwed.
