I got a new Pixi Plus back in March and have never been able to activate it, it refused to program. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong. After the generous 90 day warranty expired, I was told that my phone was bad. I could always get the canned Verizon voice "error" messages, and wi-fi worked (using activation bypass) so I figured the comm board was ok. I got a used motherboard and installed it. Should I have changed the comm board instead? Do I have my old MEID (IMEI?) number or did it change with the motherboard? How do I find it if it's changed?

thanks
