This has been some great reading! I have followed these samples for my Thunderbolt considering every other post I found was Iffy & near impossible. I'm just waiting on my 4G card to get her from Ebay, maybe it will show up today. I see a sticky coming. I will let you all know how my TB turns out. Thank you all for sharing your learning & input.
It seems the biggest problem I was having was getting my USB to read as a COM port which this thread had pointed me in the right direction

Reason: Added my helpful finding.
*UPDATE* Just got my 4G LTE card in the mail, called PPC & turned phone on with card in, woala, activation started! I'm still in testing mode but following these posts has allowed me to send & receive phone calls & text messages. Data is working at 1X but I also live in a soup bowl so service is very limited in my area. Thanks to all that have given input.
Just tried with a droid RAZR but when I try to activate I get a "DEVICE_REJECTED" from PPC. Is that because of the 99 in the ESN? Don't the folks on the phone react the same to the IMEI minus one digit?
They are not banned
I know another dealer that put one on today
did you do a esn check and make sure the esn is clean
freeesncheck dot com
I have checked, showed as free and clear. Your site above seems to be dead BTW. Sounds like a PPC glitch, I will call in when I have time to sit on hold for a while.
UPDATE: thanks to warcst, I am up and running, thanks to you all for all this great information!

I was given a Samsung Droid Charge and read somewhere that this phone needs to be flashed to PP. How come those Moto phones can be activated and not the Samsung Droid Charge? Too Verizon makes it so difficult to get these on PP. There are so many good deals on Cowboom for pre owned Verizon 4G phones but scared to get them since it is such a hassle to get these activated.
