    Hey guys,
    I am trying to flash mine to our indian cdma carrier and reached almost at the terminal except one thing which is turning me down ie.

    Recently I have found this......

    The traditional *228 activation should not be performed on this device.

    SIM activation will only complete on the Verizon Wireless Network.

    Ensure a 4G SIM card is inserted before performing the steps below. Refer to inserting / removing SIM card for additional assistance.

    If needed, slide up the lock screen.
    Select the language then select Next.
    If presented with the Home screen, select Apps then select Setup (Tools section).
    When presented, select Proceed with the setup process.
    Select Skip.
    To access Backup Assistant, select Start then refer to Backup Assistant.
    Select Skip.
    To setup / access a Google Account, select Start then refer to Google account.
    Select Next.
    To add email accounts, access social networks and download new content, select the service then follow the on-screen instructions.
    If presented with a Privacy caution screen, select Next.
    Ensure the desired location services to be used are checked then select Next.
    Select Agree after each selection.
    Verizon Location Services
    Standalone GPS Services
    Google Location Services
    Select Done.

    So looking for this" how to enable *228 in nv mode?"
    Waiting to hear from you.

    I'm posting this here with a warning of use this at your own risk. I did this to my spectrum and it messed with the SIM card and I spent the better portion of the day getting data functional again. You're not trying to use VZW, so you may have better luck.

    Other Verizon Methods

    *228 option 1
    -Programs the MDN, MIN and Home SID into the phone, downloads the latest PRL, and sets the lock code to the last 4 digits of the MDN.
    *228 option 2,
    -Only downloads the current PRL.
    -Automatically performs option 1 without having to press 1.
    -Automatically performs option 2 without having to press 2.
    -Automatically performs option 1, plus applies changes specific to data cards. Note: Do not perform *22899 on any device that is not a data card.
    -Unassisted OTA for Prepaid phones

    Tried all these but none is helpful.
