*22899 did not work even though I'm in a Verizon Wireless service area
i am having the same problems with my HTC DNA, 228 isnt working correctly on my phone though. it doesnt ring or give me any options to pick, it just pops up a message that says "a verizon wireless SIM card has activated your service and updated your phones roaming capabilities"
i havent had a chance to try it when i am on a tower that i know works.
