I've heard it's possible to activate almost any CDMA phone on Verizon. A friend of mine gave me a Sprint branded Motorola Razr V3m to try it out (and said if it worked I could keep the phone). I'm currently on Verizon, so I went into the "My Verizon" feature on Verizon's website and tried to switch my number to the Razr's ESN. Everything on the site worked out okay, but when I tried to dial *228 from the Razr it just dialed and dialed and said that "your account could not be validated". What does that mean? Does that mean that my friend jacked the phone and someone else's service is suspended on the phone? Or, because it is a Sprint phone, does the *228 thing not work? If so, what should I do? Any help is much appreciated!
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
