How do you activate a cell phone?


Answer by  Sadiesnana (28)

Generally you call the carrier of the cell phone to activate a cell phone and they will require you to provide information on both your account and the cell phone you are attempting to activate. It is really quite a simple process of answering questions about model numbers and serial numbers they will ask of you.

The activation process will vary by carrier. Contact your service provider and they will be able to tell you the process for activating you new phone. Typically all you have to do is turn the phone on and let it connect to the network.

There is usually a toll free hotline that should be included with your cell phone. Just call the number and a customer service specialist will walk you through it.

There is usually a code or a menu option you type to activate the phone. For Verizon the code is *228. Check with your phone carrier for the correct code.
