I tried this but this whole page of options came up... I don't understand how to "Go to Menu add your phone number" part....
Btw, I bought this global phone on Ebay from a seller who says it's unlocked. I popped in my SIM card and it says Activation Required at the top and it won't even read my SIM card... Is it even unlocked?
