  2. you can put the uscc info on the vzw phone, but to get it to work on uscc, they have to put the phones ESN on their computer to activate it-- and they will NOT do it because its not a USCC Branded phone.

    The problem is not equipment related - it's that, by company policy, we aren't allowed to activate non-uscc phones. If this was originally a uscc phone, you might be able to flash it back to uscc software (I'm not experienced with that), and get it activated. But as soon as a rep sees the Verizon flash screen and UI, they're supposed to hand it back and not activate it.

    From what I read he's trying to use a USCC phone on VzW, not put the VzW UI on an active USCC phone. Though, I don't know why anybody would willingly put the VzW interface on their phone.

    Just try activating it in my account, it should work. Then *228XX (depending on band) to force the ohone to download a vzw PRL. If the USCC phone is locked, you will have to find a retailer or call CS to ask them to give you the SPL code, tell them you are wanting to activate your phone on another carrier. I have brought many phones back and fourth from USCC to VZW. Also, if you want to bring a VZW phone to USCC, you can program a known number for an active USCC user into your phone, use *228XX from directiosn above to show the phone what band USCC is in, and you should get the USCC PRL on your VZW phone. Beware tho, if you do this you will have USCC apply a lock code to your VZW phone.
