    You may discover that you cannot activate the phone after installing the new 2.2 update and performing a Factory Reset, at least I did.

    You may get a prompt stating "The number you are dialing is not available in your calling area." If so you can manually activate the phone using these simple instructions. I called Verizon CS and this is what we (me and the rep) did. Hope this helps. They may release a minor update or something in the future to remedy this, but to all us early bird ppl this is the only way I found to be successful.

    1. Dial and call: ##7764726
    2. Enter SPC password: 000000
    3. Select "User Activation"
    4. Change "MIN" to your mobile phone number
    5. Change "MDN" to your mobile phone number
    6. Press "Done"
    7. Press home key (to return to homescreen)
    8. Device will automatically restart
    9. Dial and call: *228 & press 2 to update roaming (optional)
