1) So you have a shiny new BlackBerry Storm, Tour or Storm 2 and you want to remove that pesky “Activation Required” label from the top of the screen.
2) On your device, go to the phone screen, dial ##000000 and press send.
3) The CDMA service edit screen will show up. Now replace the top two numbers with your phone number. No spaces, no dashes, just 5555555555 (make sure you put in your number). Save your changes.
4) The phone will require a reset and now you can see your carrier in all it’s glory!
