Lost my current phone at the airport (an LG EnV2, old I know) and none of the phones on the current plan are eligible for an upgrade. Found out that to buy even a new basic flip phone from verizon out of contract will cost $200--that isn't happening. I have an unused cellphone at home...can my number be switched from my lost phone to this older phone?
You should be able to do this unless the phone is too old or if it is not a Verizon phone. Just try it and see if it works. You have nothing to lose...Here's how: Go to the Verizon website and look for "activate or switch device" under My Verizon and follow the steps. I have done this before and it worked just fine.
I'm sorry your phone was lost! The steps @playitagainsam are correct! Just login to vzw.com/myverizon and follow steps to get the phone activated. Let me know if you need any more assistance!
