I recently obtained a Blackberry 7250. It happened to be an Alltel branded device, but both carriers work on 900/1800 CDMA. Once it arrived, I realized that the process of transferring it would proove very difficult. Alltel does not try nearly as hard a Verizon to prevent the use of their phones on competitors' networks, so that did'nt seem like an issue. The problem is activating a phone with an ESN that isn't known to Verizon. *228 definitely does not work. ##000000 takes you to the CDMA service screen, where I tinkered (cautiously) with some fields. Still to no avail. Any ideas on moving phones from Alltel to Verizon?
