I put this in the "Verizon Activation" thread, but decided to make a new one, too.
I got my Pre3 from the ebay seller on Friday. It was already doctored to 2.2.4. I was able to get it activated easy enough and everything went fine with the the restore. Today, I discovered I can't make outgoing calls. When I try to select a contact nothing happens. I just tap on the contact name with no response from the phone. When I enter a number manually with the dial pad, it disappears when I tap the green call button. Incoming calls work fine. Texting, internet, preware, app catalog, etc all work fine.
I doctored with 2.2.4 and was able to make a call by tapping on the phone icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen before restoring my account. After the restore, I was back where I started...no outgoing calls. I guess I'll try Verizon support tomorrow.
Any thoughts? I love the phone and hope I didn't get a dud.
