Phone Activation—What you’ll need:

Your phone

Insert the mini SIM card and battery into the phone. Charge the phone so it's ready to use once activated.

Your activation code

You can retrieve your activation code in the activation booklet that came with your phone.

If you can’t find your code, or if you need a new one, you can retrieve it by dialing 1-844-730-5912 from your phone.

SIM card number

The SIM number is located on the SIM card.

Your IMEI number

You can get your phone’s serial (IMEI) number by dialing *#06# on the phone you want to activate.

You can also locate the IMEI number on the box your phone came in, or inside the phone under the battery.

Transferring service? Have your current phone number

You’ll need to know the existing phone number you wish to transfer to your new pay-in-advance plan.
