No.

What they probably said is that it is on the "Negative File", which means it is either lost, stolen, or tied to a charged off account (they didn't pay their bill).

The only thing that you can do is get a hold of the original owner and have them take the ESN off of the account (only works if you know them, Verizon won't give you the info). Which can only happen if it was lost or stolen and there was no insurance claim made on it.

Hope this helps,
Simon.

How activate my phone


To "activate" a prepaid phone you should follow steps indicated by your local mobile servce provider. Procedures might be quite different.
i.e.: If you mean on of those "disposable" cell phones selled by retail stores in "blisters" with a call card valid for 1 month, you must follow indications of the number of the "operator" you should call or their webpage.

How do i re activate my WX430?


Hello!!
In order to unlock the phone you will need to contact the original service provider for further assistance because this code is assigned by the original service provider the phone was manufactured for so that it cannot be taken to another carrier for activation without their permission.

Samsung galaxy s2 emi blocked


If a phone is marked as an unclean IMEI you can't activate it. You pretty much have two options. Call ATT and tell them your story and they may lift the block, or you can dispute the payment with eBay or Paypal. The reason this happens is because the previous user claimed it as stolen, didn't pay their bill, or cancelled service without paying cancellation fee. Sorry to hear about your situation.

How to open the gprs on nokia 5230


FOR GPRS YOU HAVE TO ASK YOU SERVICE PROVIDER.
JUST CALL ON CUSTOMER CARE AND ASK THEM TO ACTIVATE GPRS ON YOUR SIM CARD.
USUALLY NOW A DAY SIM CARD COMES WITH PRE ACTIVATED GPRS (0 RENTAL PLAN).
IF YOU HAVE ACTIVATED GPRS THEN AGAIN CALL CUSTOMER CARE FOR GPRS SETTINGS.
SETTING WILL DELIVERED TO VIA SMS. SAVE THEM AND SET THEM AS DEFAULT SETTING.
NOW OPEN YOUR DEFAULT BROWSER AND ENJOY.

ALWAYS USE FIXYA TO FIX YOUR PROBLEM.

I cannot recieve picture texts.why do i have to go to a website to get a picture when i have a so called advanced phone? my alltel slide phone was much better.


Picture text falls under the category of MMS and that has to be activated as you are supposed to pay for it (through your nose as it is very expensive). SO, if you still want to use it, then ask the helpline of your service provider to activate it. Once activated then only would you be able to use this Value Added Service.

How can i activate a used black berry 8330


You will need the ESN number of that phone which you can find on the back of the phone under the battery (you have to remove the battery.)
If you don't already have cell phone service, you need to go to a retail store or call the activations department of the phone company with which the phone is compatible to start service.
If you already have service you can call customer service to activate that phone on your existing phone number. Or, if you are registered to access your account online, you should be able to change the ESN on your phone number yourself once you log into your account.
Note that Blackberry phones use data and you will have to pay extra for data service in addition to your voice service.

My son has an lgshine, and it isn't allowing him to answer calls or txt at all. the phone is asking for a ussd service. can anyone help?


The phone is not provisioned correctly through your serv provider system and thus the phone is not getting connected to either the voice and the sms services. Call your service provider Tech department for correct provisioning. In some cases the phones are pre-provision, meaning if it has a SIM card that has not yet been fully activated you need to call to activate it.

GPRS


You can activate it yourself by visiting this address of their site: http://www.cellc.co.za/content/youraccount/login.asp

Register, you'll receive your pin number by SMS and than you'll be able to log in and activate not only GPRS also everything from the list.
  • SMS and send Call Me Back's message to your friends and family online (a limit of five total messages per day applies)
  • View your bills online or have them emailed to you
  • Activate MMS and GPRS on your phone
  • Change your password
  • Get an online phone book to store your frequently used numbers
  • Access and use the Cell C online list of SMS lingo

Or you can call service provider, calling technical support from you phone should be free and they'll activate your GPRS.

GPRS active


I assume you are using a pre paid sim card. It would be better to call the customer care of your service provider(voda phone) and then you have to apply for their gprs tariffs.
