    Where did you get the sim card from? Brand new? Taken from your old phone?

    Mines been spinning for almost an hour now. It's a brand new sim card(new 4g line), preinstalled by Verizon. Instructions provided says it should take approximately 20 mins.

    Mine was doing the same thing when I received it yesterday so I shut it down and called tech support. He "force fed the sim card information" and I was activated in 5 minutes.
    Good luck! It's a great phone so far!

    Shat 'er down - called tech support.

    Tried again, it worked.

    Note: During the faulty activation, 3G was in the corner.
    The 2nd time, it was replaced with 4G.

    I was in the store and mine took forever. Finally got a manager that took it in the back. When she came out it activated about five minutes later.
