I need to activate my Motorola sliver

The Motorola SLVR is a handset that focuses on media offerings, being one of the few non-Apple phones that features iTunes support. Although the Motorola SLVR has been available on GSM networks in the past, it is only sold through CDMA networks, such as Sprint PCS, US Cellular and Cricket Wireless. Unlike GSM phones, CDMA phones don't require unlock codes to take them to other networks. Instead, unlocking a CDMA phone involves removing the old software and installing software for its new network. The removal of the old software and installation of the new software is called flashing.
    • 1 Browse your new mobile company's store finder for a store in your area that performs handset flashing services.
    • 2 Take your Motorola SLVR into the store you located in Step 1. Explain that you currently use another mobile company but would like to switch to their mobile company. Allow the representative to install the new software onto the Motorola SLVR and then activate the phone to their network.
    • 3 Pay the fees the new mobile company charges for activating and flashing services. Pricing can vary depending on the mobile company.
    • 4 Contact your old mobile company to cancel your service contract. Be prepared to pay any fees associated with early cancellation or past-due accounts.

How do i unlock my wildcard

If your Wildcard is a Virgin Mobile phone it cannot be unlocked. Virgin Mobile phones cannot be unlocked because of the proprietary software in the phone.

If it is a US Cellular phone you may be able to contact US Cellular and inform them that you need your phone SIM unlocked for international travel.

Virgin Mobile Wildcard Phone Won't Charge!!!

okay, this happened to me too.
first you need to call virgin mobile and ask a live advisor for help.
if they ask you to take the battery out and press the power button for 30 seconds and it doesnt work then they will try to send you a new charger.
when i called it was out of stock.
you can also but the car charger.
hope i helped :]
