    It should stop when you activate the phone. Or, take the sim out until you want to activate it.

    It's getting instructions from the SIM to phone home for settings. It should do this only once. If it keeps doing it, there is not enough information on the account to finish setup. Like there isn't a phone number/airtime yet.

    If you want to check out the phone, you will need to remove the SIM to stop the behavior.

    I think this is the case. There was another thread about it somewhere.

    I am not sure what is going on too because my G7 Optimo Maxx does this a random times too.
