    Is anyone else having a problem activating today? I tried to activate my sister's Dare on Verizon's network, but the Activation number kept linking me to alltel's activation service

    You still might be in an Alltel area that has not been converted. it is hitting an alltel tower. Call VZW see if they can help.

    IF you are in a VZW area that is aso covered by VZW, then they can run a manual progamming and this should resolve it

    I'm in Wyoming, so we're in the Divested market for Alltel/Verizon. Tried manual programming on the phone, but no go still. Even tried calling the activation line on other phones to see if it was a fluke. 3 out of the 5 phones we tried went to the Alltel Activation line

    You can only program a device while it is in a VZW foot print. Even you maunal program at this point the device will only work in the home area till a full programming is done.

    Therefore, you need to get to a VZW foot print to program the device.
