Activating a cell phone can be done by going to the company's Web site to find an activation option or by calling the carrier directly, going through the automated menu and choosing to activate a new phone. Activate a cell phone with information from a wireless specialist in this free video on cell phones.
Hi, I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California, and today I'm going to show you how to activate your phone. There's two ways you can do it. You can go directly to the company's website--the company that you want to activate your phone with--so you can go to the T-Mobile store, the Sprint store, the AT&T store, and have them activate a phone for you there. Or, you can call the company directly. So if you already have a phone from that company, if you already have an AT&T phone and you want to activate that phone on the AT&T network, you can call 611. If you have Sprint, you can call *2. If you have T-Mobile, you can also call 611. If you have Metro PCS, you can call *228. So find out more of those numbers, you can Google it on the internet, or you can go to that company's website directly and find a direct number for them. Once you call that number, usually the first option that the automated system will give you, will usually be activate. Option number one is usually activate, so you can just hit option number one, and it'll go straight to the activations department, and they'll be able to help you out in getting your phone activated. If you don't already have a phone from that company, what you need to do is go online or look in the phone book, and find that company's direct number so you can call them from a land line, and maybe they can send you a phone in the mail, or they can direct you to a corporate store where you can get your new phone. I'm Ben, from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California, and that's how you activate your phone.
