    When it goes to the activation window you can press activate then end call for maybe 5 times then it skips activation

  2. dwight says

    If it goes to the activation screen you can press activate and then back for maybe ten times then it let you go on without activating

    Worked fine for me, everywhere else just said to hold the volume down button and hold the power button.
