I've just got my new Storm 9530 bought from ebay and also has the same problem with "Activation Required" text on the header. I just want to reconfirm on your suggestion to remove this with several questions:
1. Does ##000000 work for any GSM operators in any country?
2. When inputing my phone number, should I used +CountyCode (for example : +62xxxx for Indonesia's number)?
3. Do I have to do this before register the BB services or after?
