    Default Need help. Cannot Reactivate my Droid after Rooting...

    I went to try to root my Droid and got to the end where it powered back up and said I had to reactivate my phone. it force calls *228 and i have the option 1 or 2. I click on to reactivate and am told to hold while they pull my info up and a min later the automated voice come back saying my phone cannot be activated at this time... any Ideas or am I SOL? Also I am trying to get 2.2 on my droid. what is the best one to use? looking for flash and wifi tethering... any help would be Great! Thanks!

    just keep trying. You might have called while verizon was doing maintainance on their network. Also make sure you have a good signal when you make the call.

    I didn't have to call to reactivate my droid when I rooted and then went to 2.2, I did though have to reset up my google account but that's about it. I would try back at a later time or call their customer service and ask them if they can manually activate for you.

    IMO, try bugless beast v.04, I just flashed that last night and so far it's awesome!

    Same thing happened to me a month or so ago after I did the baseband update -- apparently midnight-ish is a bad time to try and activate a phone because I was trying to do it at the same time. Maybe Verizon works on server maintenance/upgrades that late at night .....

    This happened to me. Even though I have good signal I moved to a window and it activated. Don't know if it actually helped but I was able to activate that way.
