ACTIVATE MOTOROLA DROID on PAGE PLUS - Direct and manual programing
After my 48 hours crazy experience on activating my droid to page plus -
I just would like to share this to everyone. You don't need to thank me -
part of this is also compilation fr
in this forum. Plus admin willing this can be a sticky -
make member easy to activate their droid.

Some people can activate their droid OTA and these are the steps:

Turn Droid off.
Call PagePlus Add ESN - Activate new ESN or Port (this is the best time,
if you want to port your number)
Check Verizon's Port Checker.
Wait til it says it's complete.
Once it's "Complete", Turn Droid on.
Press Activate - Option 1
Phone will Activate and viola ?

But my DROID cannot be activated this way I have to do manual programing.
But before that if you need to by pass the activation screen this is what you need to do:

At starting screen touch corners of the screen clockwise
start from Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Right, Bottom Left.
Do not touch the the DROID icon

Call your PP dealer or customer service and say you want to sign up with PP.
Give your ESN / MEID - remember if you want to port your old number this is the good time.
Ask them your MIN and phone number(MDN)
**PP CS, they will ask you to press activate or *22890 or *228 Opt 1 which mine didn't work.
If you ask them you want to manual program you DROID phone they CAN NOT/DO NOT want to help.
But no problem !!!.
Just complete the call and say you will program it by your self
(make sure the account is active).

ON your phone
Pass the activate screen (see above)
Go to phone mode
dial ##PROGRAM (##7764726) hit Send (CALL BUTTON)
put in the SPC code which "000000" (six zero) press VERIFY
Next screen, Go to selection "01 User Activation"
Replace the MIN number with the MIN number that you get from PP.
Replace the MDN number with your new PP phone number that you get from PP.
Exit and your Phone will restart automatically.

And you are ON PP.

I hope this will make people live easier. HAPPY PP everyone.
ADVICE - careful on using your DATA 20/50MB will run so fast -
use WIFI when ever you can.
