    Hi all!!

    Well I've had the Storm for about a month now and I am having a love-hate relationship with it. My question is this: is it possible to activate my old 8830 WE by just switching the PIN on the verizon BIS website? or is that just wishful thinking?

    Thanks so much!!

    That unfortunately is not going to work. You have to call the carrier and they can switch it for you. On ATT/Tmo you can just change the pin on the site and switch the SIM card, that doesn't work for CDMA (sprint/vzw)

    You have 2 options really. You can call Verizon CS and they can do it for you. Or if the account is in your name you can call *228 and select option 3, I think. Option 2 is way faster fo sho.

    On the VZW network do the following.

    Power off the storm. On the 8830, dial *228 opt 3 and it will change the ESN and program the phone. Also you must do a register now on the 8830. Then log into the BIS site and change the PIN and ESN there.
