    Got a Free Storm from friend and need help

    I got a free Storm last Friday from a friend. I have Verizon and called them to help me get setup. We got almost everything done, except when I call *228 and enter option 1 to get the over the air program or activation it keeps failing. The Verizon tech said I may have to wait until 26May09 before it will be able to update, something about a port. And when I use the BlackBerry Messenger it still has my friends screen name of luckie and I don't know where or how to change it. Can anyone help with either of these issues?

    Try dialing *22899 and see what it says. And for BBM, go in to BBM>bb button>edit my info and change display name

    BBM should be under the IM folder. As far as *22899 not working im not really sure, that activates the phone and updates the PRL in once easy call. You may have to wait like Verizon had said...
