Ever since i rooted my Optimus V i loved it. There was only one thing that held me back. After rooting with this guide HERE. I lost my activation app. is there an apk for this? i know there is some for basic phone functions, so i guess theres one for this. (Also When i press activate phone in "about phone" nothing happens.) I hope ive explained this enough.
I had trouble using the activation method when I was stock, but there's really no need. Just activate on the virgin website and then dial ##virgin#, go to edit, put your phone# into the MDN, and then enter your MSID. You should get your MSID when you activate on their website, but if not you have to call them to get it. That's the only way I could activate at all, and that's before I rooted.
AOSP is 2.3, which is why it FC's.
You need to go back to a 2.2 rom to use it.
Nandroid your 2.3, install a 2.2 rom that includes the app (Harmonia and Bumblebee do), use teh app, then restore your nandroid backup.
Exactly what I was gonna say - LeslieAnn on point as usual - make sure you flash a froyo rom and you should activate with no issue - the ##virgin# method above is also good info as I have had one of my stock OV's refuse to activate.
Then just restore your current setup via recovery
When in doubt call customer service (stockpile patience first) - then say customer service over and over again (3x I think) until the automated system gives up - ask the level 1 CSR to give you to a tech that can help with a manual acitvation - and they will talk you thru the above steps while magically changing some stuff on their end.
But all of the above info is moot until you are on a 2.2 froyo rom
