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?

I bought a Verizon Storm2 9550 and use it in ISRAEL @ Cellcom.

After I followed your instructions I have "Cellcom - 3Comxxxx" (my WiFi connection name) at the top of my home screen instead of the annoying announcement.

Thanks a lot, man.
You are the man.
Guys, this trick works,
I am using unlocked verizon mobile in India, now it shows Vodafone IN on screen.
Thanks budy,

Great Calix! ##000000 worked, I just used it with a 9530 verizon unlocked in Panama and finally got the "activation required" out to my carrier name.

Default Re: "Activation Required" how to remove?

this has fixed the problem for me, i dialed ##000000 then it went to another screen where it gave me dafaulted wrong phone number, i delated that and typed my actual phone number. i clicked on blackberry button and pressed save. blackberry storm restarted itself. and i could see my carrier name on the top, insted of activation required. make sure press ## twice before pressing six zerros.

Hi,

try logging into your email setup from your device and log into your user and password. you should be able to activate from there
