Help Optimus V can't place or receive calls


Apr 19, 2012
Good morning! I've got an odd issue for you.

I've been using my Optimus V unactivated for quite a while, waiting for my Verizon service to expire. Just yesterday, I performed a full factory reset (unrooted) and activated with Virgin mobile.

Without checking to verify I could place calls, I rooted and flashed Harmonia 2. I tried to place a call last night, and get a message that I need to top up because there's no money in my account.

First of all, I've paid the $35, and second, both 3G and text are working perfectly!

So, I used the security update to flash back to full stock and called customer service, who just had me reactivate the phone 3 times to no avail. They insisted that I need to wait for a text message that should have come in telling me I can make calls.

No message yet, still can't make calls. Any ideas? I just want my phone to work as a phone. :)
