    CM7 Nightly 148

    Default This Verizon wireless customer is unavailable at this time...

    I have another noobish question. Last night I flashed Ruby 2.0.2 again and when I wasn't able to fix my poor battery life issue I reloaded my stock nandroid backup. As soon as I was back on my home screen I called my Incredible from my home land line phone just to make sure that everything was OK and I got the following message...

    "Welcome to Verizon Wireless. The wireless customer you called is not available at this time. Please try your call again later. Announcement 1 switch 41-3."

    I hadn't tried to update my phone's radio or anything like that but I immediately became afraid that I had somehow seriously damaged my phone. Thankfully when I tried again a few minutes later it worked and I was able to get through to my Incredible. My phone has worked fine ever since but still it was worrying. Does anyone know why I might have gotten this message (maybe my phone storage was still loading and the call just didn't go through? It didn't show up in my call history) and if it's safe for me to flash another ROM?

    Could have been a tower issue. Flashing a ROM does not change your network connnectivity.
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    Did you dial *228 and press option 1 after re-flashing?

    I'm with Pville on this one, definitely sounds like a local tower issue.
