Whenever you upgrade a phone on a Verizon Wireless business line, or purchase a new device, the phone arrives pre-activated on the line you indicated when you ordered it.All you need to do is program the new phone to complete activation and remove the old phone from the account.Like, Synergy ROM r484 had no issues and it would activate 4G, but now it won't. I still get 3G and calls go through (another problem I had was that the phone application kept force closing), so I'm assuming the phone just isn't contacting Verizon to activate itself.TL; DR: Is there a way to manually activate 4G by calling Verizon or...?While no additional fees are incurred during Verizon Wireless roaming, these roaming minutes are treated like your regular Verizon Wireless minutes.Plans that don't include service outside of the US are charged on a per minute, text, and MB basis.Is it possible to just get a new one in the mail or pick one up from my local store?
Also *228 no longer fries the sim it doesn't update either it just loads the activation from the sim. EDIT: I'm now running the stock OTA MF1 update (courtesy of beans and scott) with the MF1 baseband, but still no 4G. So recently I flashed the Jun 14th revision of Paranoid Android.Like, Synergy ROM r484 had no issues and it would activate 4G, but now it won't. I still get 3G and calls go through (another problem I had was that the phone application kept force closing), so I'm assuming the phone just isn't contacting Verizon to activate itself. Otherwise, I'm not sure what to tell you, but on the bad advice of a vzw customer service rep I fried my sim card that way.The programming process in most cases is simple and automated; just enter a star code and follow the instructions. Create a backup of your current phone’s contacts on Verizon’s servers using Backup Assistant if you don’t want to lose them.Backup Assistant comes preinstalled on many Verizon smartphones and is available in the Application menu.Keep in mind that it could take over a month for a carrier to tell Verizon that you owe roaming charges.
