How to activate a used phone

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by brn2rnjk1@gmail.com, Aug 24, 2004.

  1. If I want to replace my broken v720 with a used one bought off ebay,
    how do I do that. Do I need to bring the broken phone and the used to
    a verizon store? Can it be done by calling verizon.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jim

    you can call or go right online and do it within 10 minutes at
    www.verizonwireless.com you just need the esn number of the one you are
    going to change to. secondly before you buy off of ebay. ask for the esn
    number if the phone is not new that way you can check with vzw to make sure
    it is not a stolen phone.

    Also, is the phone you're going to buy compatible with the Verizon network?
    Is it CDMA, etc? Ask before you buy.

    An analog phone can be activated on
    the VZW site and will work if analog is
    available in that area. Not recommended.
    Many features would be lost and I suppose
    that VZW would rather you not do it. But,
    as a temporary measure etc. No PRLs, no
    time readout etc., no features. etc...
