    I got a used bb curve off of craigslist, and when I called *228 to activate the verizon phone I accidentally activated the old number instead of my number. Now the person who sold it to me is not answering, and I cant deactivate this number and put my number in. Is there anything I can do. Or is him deactivating it the only possible solution?
    I dont think he stole it because the ad had this number on it and before he gave it to me he deactivated it. Then I reactivated it like a dummy

    You should be able to call the carrier and explain to them the situation. They need to de activate it and disassociate the pin# from His account. Then set it up for you. If you don't you will not only have the wrong number, but it's possible your going to get his email too.

    Another vote to call the carrier and have them fix the problem.

    there is nothing i can do. I called and they need the other guys confirmation to discontinue the line. So I have this beautiful unusable phone.

    Look for the ad again in Craigslist.
    Or see if his email addy is in the bb.
