    V3m activation question

    I'm coming to pp and I'm a simple person. I don't care for smartphones so I have a v3m. I looked in stickies and it needs a manual activation. But I how do I get my MSN and Sid I'd? And will mms work on the v3m?

    MMS probably won't work. The numbers you need are on a barcode sticker underneath the battery. (Probably in the phone menus too, but the sticker is faster.)

    If it is a Vzw V3M, after you give PPC the ESN/MEID, all you should have to do to get talk and text to work is dial *22890 to program it OTA. MMS (probably) and WAP will need additional manual modifications to work.

    How come mms don't work right out of the box like other Verizon phones?

    I don't know for sure, except that MMS requires cellular data. It is hit or miss, varying by model. It has been reported that MMS on PPC on the enV 2 and enV 3 work without modifications. I just can't remember if MMS will work on the V3M without modifications.

    EDIT:
    According to http://www.wirelessforums.org/alt-cellular-verizon/q-verizon-moto-razr-v3m-activating-pp-set-up-details-124010.html , MMS on PPC on the V3M will work without modifications. There are also instructions on how to get WAP working. I have no idea if the info at the above link is accurate.

    Ahhh! Must not be a VZW phone, then. The activation email I received from my dealer included the MSN and the further remark that if I need the SID I should call Page Plus customer service. If the instructions in the activation email are not enough, Page Plus has a "manual activations" that may help you.

    My own practice has been to buy non-VZW phones (Alltel, maybe Sprint) already active on Page Plus.

    If its a CDMA V3m and its not Verizon branded (maybe a Sprint or USCC phone) it can be flashed to a Verizon V3m monsterpack and be indistinguishable from a VZ handset. Instructions are somewhere in here if you do a search.
