    Can anyone help me try to activate my Palm Pre 3 on Verizon? I have doctored it to both 2.2.3 and 2.2.4 per suggestions in the forums, I have updated my vzw profile with the Pre 3 MEID, but every time the phone turns back on, it says "scanning CDMA", the bars are all greyed out, there is no 3G symbol, and when it tries to call Verizon to activate, it fails.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Have you tried dialing *228? Then use option 1. The automatic activation has never worked for me on any webOS device. To be able to dial, choose emergency call, then backspace to delete 911 from the field and input *228.

    should be a bunch more verizon pre3's around as price drops bring phone under $300 including shipping. i bought 2 this week...one for $300 and the second for $299. You'l need to make and offer. $300 is automatically accepted. I tried $275 which went to seller who replied with $299 and said that was best he could do at his cost. At least I got 2 for what one sold for months ago. Now to get it and activate it. Won't let my Pre2's go until we have them working. Click this link...wierd looking link but it works:

    If your phone says scanning cdma and gives no bars, the more likely reason is that the meid is not in their system. I assume it's brand-new. I've seen this several times, and it requires calls to vz, usually to their network/backend people.
    in the beginning this was a bit annoying, but i assume that enough people have made these calls that it should go relatively painlessly.(fingers crossed for you!)

    The MEID should have nothing to do with locking onto a base station or not. Are you sure the WebOS doctor succeeded? Your problem sounds reminiscent of the original problem with the Pre 3. Verizon Pre 3s will not lock onto a base station fresh out of the box. The phone was shipped with a major bug. You have to WebOS Doctor it to get a working phone. Then you will be able to provision. I need to go through the old forum postings to refresh my memory on the details of the issue.

    All you have to do to fix this is go to the phone app and hit ##RTN#. then scroll to the bottom and hit reset. It will ask for your msl which is 000000 [6 zeros] Once you do that you are on baby
