However, you can activate the basic plan from home and can recharge at any time. More often, I’ve always preferred to activate the plan from home. Ok, let’s get started in with some procedures.

1) SIM Card Setup

To activate the Verizon phone, install the SIM card first with the activated plan. If you don’t know how to install, find the pinhole on the SIM tray. Unlock the tray using pin and takeout.

Before installing the SIM, remember the 20-digit number on the card. You need this for the activation. Once done, insert the SIM and close the tray.

Now, plug in and charge it fully. The setup is typically quick but starting with a full charge is always a good idea. At the least, you can measure the charging time and the lifespan of the battery.

2) Activation Procedure

The activation process is easy by phone, but you need one more phone for call checkup. Or else you can use your friend’s phone to make the activation call.

Calling 866-893-7723, your Verizon phone connects to the activation line. The call is automated and needs to answer the basic questions to move the call forward. When it asks the type of device being activated, just enter the phone option and then type your 20-digit SIM number when prompted. Once the SIM is accepted, type your 5-digit ZIP code to set phone GPRS.

Now, Verizon is ready for further setup. Its time to enter Verizon PIN or debit card details to send and confirm the payment. Then, Verizon will send you a phone number with a security code. Note down the phone number and security code for the final activation.

Just turn on the phone and connect to home Wi-Fi. Restart if it already turned on the phone with wifi connection. Make sure that it may require 10 to 15 min for the final activation.

3) Verizon Prepaid Activation Online

One can activate the prepaid plan using offline or online methods. To me, the online method is easy and efficient to complete. Now open the Verizon website and set up a “My Verizon” account if you don’t have one already. If you already having the account, then log in to the website.

When you are giving credentials, better to access your account area. After that, just click the Activate option and select the option. Choose Activate a Device on an Existing Line or Set up a New Line.

Now, add the SIM card number and click Check ID. If you chose to activate on an existing line, it will work with that phone number, and you can purchase the prepaid plan.

For newly registered phones, they receive the Verizon activation number or security code and phone number. Set up your phone on Wi-Fi and follow the prompts to enter the number and code for the final activation. Test the phone at this point to finalize and the new plan.

  2. Now Click Add device.
  3. Just tap “Activate a device I already own”.
  4. Choose the type of device you’re adding.
