Need help with SIM cardSupport

    Hi, I just bought a Droid Incredible 2 & Verizon/Vodafone SIM (world) card from eBay (both from different people) & I wanted to know, if it's ok to activate it now, or only when I plan to travel abroad?

    Even if I don't activate it now, would it be a problem if I took it out of the card it came in & slid it into my phone?

    A side note; how do I get the "Droid" sound at the start up screen to work? even with my volume up it doesn't work. I had the incredible & thunderbolt, & now I returned to Droid & I really miss that sound. :p

    Don't know about the sim card. I never activated mine. But as for the Droid sound, I think that's a Motorola thing. Could be wrong.

    Pretty sure you need to get the SIM unlock code from Verizon before you leave the country.

    Ok, but how do I get it to work. When I turn on my phone, it's completely silent.

    So I'm assuming that I have to call the "global support team"?

    I just checked on that and was told I have to call 908-559-4899 for the global folks so it looks like that's who you have to call.

    * From there they check to see if your account is in good standing and text you the unlock code. Then when you insert a different SIM card the phone asks for the unlock code.

    The global support number is actually is saved on the Sim card, people> menu> view> check Sim (1) it will show up.

    with my SIM inserted, should I keep it on global mode, or should I keep it on CDMA mode?

    Or hit search and type "global". I wondered why my phone already knew that number.

    does anybody know how to activate the "Droid" intro sound?

    When do you want that sound? If just on a boot then it's probably related to the boot animation. You need root to get to /system to change that.

    If you are in the united states using the phone on VZW's network you will want to run it on cdma mode.
    This will save battery life since it will deactivate the gsm radio from searching for a signal and not finding one.

    Menu> settings> call> preferred network choose cdma as preferred.
    You would only want to use gsm when traveling abroad.

    Aw, screw that! my rooting days are over!

    Did they not put that sound into the incredible 2? cause the original incredible has it.

    No, the DInc 2 doesn't have it natively. I had the Inc 2 as well and was also disappointed with the lack of identity with the DROID brand. Motorola seems to have kept the majority of the DROID pie. Maybe the original incredible was just an exception.
