How to activate a found cell phone
If you need to activate found cell phone then you need to follow the below steps:-
- First contact your provider to make sure you can activate a used cell phone through them because many companies don't do this.
- Now give him the Electronic Serial Number (ESN) of your used phone to see if it is compatible with there service or not which you can locate the ESN number by removing the battery which will be of 11 digit number.
- Put the card from your old phone into your newly acquired phone. If that works, you're set. If not, move on to the next step.
- Call your cell phone company on a land line or different cell phone. Tell them you would like to activate a new phone and start an account or to replace your old phone. They will ask you some security questions like model, serial number and ESN, so have these handy. They will tell you what to do from there and walk you through it.
