I purchased an ES1 but it came via direct ship from Singapore. The Segway app is looking for a Chinese area code to send the text to finish activating it. What do I need to do to get it to work out of the limited mode to work her in the USA. This has been driving me nuts since I purchased it. What is worse I had to rebuild it because it was damaged during shipping. I’m bound and determined to get this working if possible. As I am not hacking a serviced unit to personal it is a personal scooter from scratch.

So what do I have to do to get this to work. I do not have an android phone to flash the memory. I only have apple products. I saw a couple of videos on converting bird scooters but nothing about ES1’s
