Droid Incredible Won't Activate

I've been trying to switch my phone from a Droid 2 to a Droid Incredible while in Extended Network. When I go to call *228, a US cellular message comes up and then "Programming Unsuccessful". Now I don't have service on either of my phones. How do I go about this?

Verizon Wireless phones won't activate in an extended coverage area. You need to go to a native Verizon Wireless coverage area to activate the phone.

You might be able to activate it manually, but you would need the assistance of customer service on another phone or someone who is knowledgeable about the manual programming method.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
