The blank screen situation.  Yeah, we have found when an address is put in for E911 Address validation if an address has alternate addresses a white screen is being displayed instead of the alternate addresses.  A fix was deployed overnight on February 23rd during the Monthly release schedule.  It should work now.

I'm having this apple watch activation issues.


I contact sprint support by phone but, they were only able to add the plan to my account--I'm still unable to get my watch activated through my phone.


The problem I'm having is as follows:


Apple Watch App > Cellular > Set Up Cellular > Pair Device > 9-1-1 Registered Location


Under this section when I hit next, I get taken to a blank screen with the Sprint header and a cancel button. I'm wondering if there's something setup on my account that's preventing me from getting further? I had previously had my watch paired with my phone using cellular just fine.


Removing the cell plan and now, trying to add it back has proven to be quite the challenge.
