    Probably not. However, you could reactivate the old phone, update the
    PRL before you leave, and switch back to the new phone. I think there
    might be a limit of 3 ESN changes per day, so that's something to watch
    out for.

    A disabled Verizon phone will most definitely allow a *228 as long as,
    as previously mentioned, your phone can find a Verizon digital signal. *228
    is part of the activation process. My Kyoceras even say "Activation" when
    you dial *228 :)
