I bought the Verizon Galaxy tab yesterday at Best Buy. They had to activate it in the store before I left but they told me I could immediately cancel the data service. So I did. Then, I decided to mess around with the Tab which forced me to want to start fresh with a restore... Bad news... I now had to activate my tablet with Verizon again. I could not even get past the activation screen. That is a major issue (at least for me). I understand that with the ATT version, you buy it and away you go. If you want to activate great, and if not, great. What about the Sprint version? Does this need a Sprint activation every time I want to reset from factory fresh?
