Activating your Verizon phone from MobileCellMart.Com is very easy. You can do it in person at a Verizon store, on the phone, or even on line. The most important piece of information you need is your phone's serial number. Remove the battery. On the sticker under the battery you will see the identification number. Older phones use an electronic serial number, or ESN, while newer phone have a Mobile device identifier, or MEID.
Your Verizon Wireless Representative will then verify the phones make and model and verify whether or not the phone was reported lost or stolen and whether there's a previous balance on it. If the phone was reported lost or stolen, the representative has to speak with the person who reported it lost or stolen before you can proceed with the activation process. All of MobileCellMart.Com's phones are guaranteed to be free of these problems.
Then you simply choose the phone plan you want and pay any appropriate fees. You can use your phone immediately , and If you are a current Verizon Wireless customer, you may be able to use the SIM card from your active phone and transfer it to the used Verizon cell phone.
Activating your used Verizon Phone online is just as easy, if not easier. Log in to your account at the Verizon Wireless website. Register a new account if you haven't already set one up. Read the information on the page, then click "Next." Click "Install Backup Assistant" if you'd like help transferring contacts and other files from your old phone, or click "Next" if you don't want to run the "Backup Assistant."
Turn off your old phone. Locate the Electronic Serial Number (ESN) or the Mobile Equipment Identifier (MEID) under the battery of your new cell phone. Enter it into the box, and click "Continue." Confirm the order and location numbers from the receipt or paperwork that came with your new phone. Click "Confirm." Enter your Social Security number and read the terms and conditions. Click the box next to "I Agree..." Click "Submit."
Wait 10 to 15 minutes for the form to submit electronically, then dial "*228" on your phone. Press "3" to confirm your activation. Your new cell phone is now activated on your existing Verizon Wireless account.
