Default Orange Data Plan on Unlocked VZ Toour

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Verizon Tour which Verizon unlocked. I will be in the UK for an extended period of time and have an Orange prepaid SIM. I have used the Orange SIM to make calls on the Orange network without any problem. However when I called Orange to register for their 5 pound BIS data plan they told me to register my phone in the Orange BB registration site. When I tried to do this I could not because my phone was registered to VZ. I have called Verizon and thye have been no help. What I need to know is how to register my phone with Orange and then go back to Verizon when I return to the States. I will put my Verizon account on suspend. Will that do it? Somewhere I read deleting my email account before I leave will do it? Is that sufficient? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

You'd need to get verizon to delete your BIS account, deleting your email accounts in the process.
then registering with Orange for BIS.
then getting Orange to delete the BIS and re-registering for Verizon BIS when you go back.

Thanks. I just spoke to Verizon Global services and the supervisor was insistent that it is their policy never to release the PIN. It was a very frustating conversation. Any suggestions of who to contact at Verizon or "success" stories in getting the PIN released from Verizon.
