    I had to call to activate mine. The SIM card wouldn't take, and they had to manually add it to their systems... All set now...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I activated it online. If you ordered from Verizon, there should be instructions on a yellow piece of paper. It took me less than 3 mins, which included the *228 call.
