How to Activate your device.

Activating a Pre-own device in most cases can be as easy as inserting your sim card, but also may require you to go through your carrier’s online “Bring Your Own Device” page, or visit your carrier’s physical store. Here below we have listed a direct link to the major carrier pages for activating your pre-owned device.

Please keep in mind if the device is unlocked most SIM cards will work with your device, carriers will recommend that you get a new SIM card or an eSim (digital SIM) when upgrading your phone for best performance. Most Sprint devices will require a new SIM with a T-Mobile card in order to be activated.

You may need to refresh your device's built-in operating system with a software update for Apple or Android in order to allow your new device to connect to your existing network.
