I'm here to help. We want to make sure you have all the information you need when activating your own device on your account. There would not be a charge to activate a "bring your own" device if you have an existing Verizon Wireless account. Please be sure that this phone is able to be activated on our network since you did not purchase it directly from us. Please use this link https://www.verizonwireless.com/prospect/bring-your-own-device#/checkDevice to see if the phone is compatible. If you do not have a Verizon Wireless postpaid account, then there is a one time $30.00 activation fee.
