iphone 4s activation trouble

Received my iphone in the mail today, tried a few different things to try to activate it. I can make and receive calls on it. On the MyVerizon it says I need to activate it. I went to the activation page, put in the ESN and whatever it told me to do. Then it says MDN needs to be activated or something which is the phone number, it's telling me to activate it and that's what I'm trying to do. I called the *228 and the #832 and it says push 1 to activate, I did. Call the #832, I did, it says it is programmed. Why is it not activated yet? I'm synced with itunes, and registered. What am I missing here?

Sounds activated with that you can make or receive phone calls. Call 18009220204 on a different phone and have them see if the number on the account matches the meid on your phone. Also look under settings then phone it will tell you the number the phone is associated with. Also you can go to about to see what the meid # is.
