I recently dropped my phone in a cup of water (I did the rice thing) but I'm pretty sure it's done for considering it had been dropped numerous times and is cracked on both sides. Well, I bought a phone off a friend and while I was trying to activate it with Verizon online.. I got to the "We're sending you an authorization code via text" part and I cannot look at my text messages because my phone isn't working. So, what do I need to do?
Well with phone not working and being bought off a friend which means no Warranty, your best thing to do now is to find one off the Internet there are a few places that have used phones at prices reduced from what a new one would cost or if you can afford a new one go that direction, Since it sounds like you have an account I would take the phone you that you find, possibly the internet and go to a Corporate store and see if they can put it on your account, you may need to bring the old phone with you so they can make the transfer happen..
Hope that Helps.. b33
