Unlocked Verizon 9550 on a GSM only carrier -> *611 calls verizon global roaming
I got a verizon 9550.
Then I bought and unlock for it, which after the normal instructions, AND, these: (i had the activation required message on the top of the screen)
Removing "Activation Required" on the screen or changing the Phone Number:
1) On the main screen of the phone, press Call (Green Button)
2) Type on the screen: ##000000
3) Press the Call Button
4) For the Mobile Directory Number, put in your phone number in there
5) After you have done that, press the Menu Button to Save the options and the phone will automatically restart
6) After restarting, it will be updated
The only thing i cant seem to fix, is that my carrier (Movistar, Argentina) uses the same *611 that verizon seems to use. When i try to call movistar, i get answered by Verizon Global roaming "something".
I read somewhere that in the same menu that i had to change the mobile directory number in order to get the phone activated, i had to change the MCC and MNC, the ones for Argentina and movistar are 722 and 070, but the MNC accepts only 2 digits codes. (i tried 00, 07, 70, and then i thought that the correct code was 010 [old code that movicom CDMA carrier had before merging with movistar and going GSM only, so i also tried 10, 01).
I also noticed that i can have anything there, with no effect :P
Anyways, i think that that menu is only for the CDMA part of the phone.
If anyone knows how to fix the *611 calling to verizon, pls let me know.
PD: i am on a GSM only country, no CDMA here, and i have set the radio to GSM/UMTS only
well, *611# does call movistar and not verizon.
seems no one knows anything else :P
pd: is it normal to NOT be able to download speedtest, twixtreme AND ebay from my storm 2 (from appworld)? twixtreme is not THAT compatible, and ebay is not for south america, but speedtest ?
all 3 apps more or less work when downloaded using an OTA link, and i could download twixtreme and speedtest with my bold, so, either they are not storm 2 compatible, or ?
(i ask this cause appworld says that either my device or my network are not compatible, and since with the same network, and another phone i could get them, and with this phone, and an OTA link i could, i thought that maybe the appworld thought that the storm 2 was on verizon or somehting )
