Need to Acivate my GLOBAL VALUE PLAN from Bangkok, Thailand

On 21 Feb 2012 I bought the Global Value Plan.  I was told to dial *228, option 2 before I left USA, but I forgot.

I called Verizon from Bangkok & spent over $100 calling your tech help desk.

I was told to try *228, option 2 again, but it wouldn't connect.  I only got a message in Thai & English that it was an invalid phone number.  I was also told that if that didn't work that I should dial +19085594899, which I tried & received the same message.  I tried it again by first putting in the USA country code of 001 with the same result.  I next tried 1001 prior to the number with the same result.

One problem is that on my phone the + & the zero are the same keys.  So when I tried to dial the + it always appeared as a zero.

How can I get this fixed ???

Please help, it is important that I get my EMAILs during this three week trip.    Thanks,   John
