Today (day 4) I went to last store in this area and they spent an hour and tried some more things, and they tried a new one and it did the same thing, no activation. I'm waiting until next week to walk in a swap for a working G2. One of the employees mention that the LG Rep came by and asked about activation problems and mentioned a work around. They didn't have his card and never found a solution.
The problem I had with the G2 is that it came with a SIM card in the phone, but it wouldn't activate using that one. I had to use the one that was shipped with the device. I was not sure on the difference between the two internally except the one in the phone that didn't work was all white, and the one that did work was white with a red stripe across it.
It may not be the phone, it may be the SIM. Ask for a replacement SIM for that line and see if it activates?
