Customer Question
I have a new...

I have a new phone and cannot get it activated to use on my existing account.

Technician's Assistant: When were you last able to use your phone?

I have not been able to user this phone at all

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a Factory Reset? The phone expert can walk you through this to ensure you don't lose your photos, contacts and other data.

There is no data to lose since this is a new phone

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the phone expert to know before I connect you?

I do not think so. Do you need to know the phone number associated with my account

I called and this was no help it told me to log on to her account at Verizon and she is nott a computer user so I do not think she has any idea.
Android Device Expert: Josh, Technician replied 6 months ago

You said "it" told you -- Did you speak to a live person? They can activate it over the phone with you. I have activated hundreds of phones.
