Every phone has to have a unique identifier in order for the cell phone network to be able to identify that network device (otherwise the network would not have a clue who is talking to it, and vice-versa your phone would not know when it is being spoken to). In the case of the TB, this unique identifier is stored in the SIM card, not on the phone itself.
VZW is running a hybrid system of sorts in that the VZW system is generating an internal MEID for the TB for when it is on the CDMA network based on the SIM card that is currently installed in it. Without the sim card your phone has no ID, and without the verizon back end no CDMA network can translate the unique identifier on your SIM card into a usable MEID.
Man, thank you for your reply, but as I say, I have purchased a RUIM card
(looks like the sim card
) from my local operator, everythins is OK except data. I mean I can easily call or receive a call or texe message, but data isn't working properly.
Moreover, can confirm that I can update network settings via ##778#
(will see in snapshots). What is the way to make my data connection workin?
All additinal info with the proof of working in third party CDMA networks in the attachements.
