    Phone wont activate lg optimus m

    I brought a LG optimus on Craigslist two days ago and I can't get it to activate onto my metro account its says phone is still under someone else's account. What can I do to get this on my account myself or should I take to a metro store to them to do it.
    Thanks for the help.

    You can only wait it out till the account it is under cancels automatically or changes the phone registered to the number.

    if the previous owners don't pay their bill, how long does it take to drop?

    obviously if they sold one phone, then got another and registered that, the "old" phone would drop (like my old Samsung flip phone when I bought the Optimus). But what if the seller then switched to another carrier? How long until the Metro account cancelled and associated phone released -- 30 days from non-payment or what?
    Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.

    If an account is disconnected due to non-payment, then it's 30 days from the day of disconnection.
    If you port your number out of Metropcs, then it's whenever your port completes - normally a day.

    You could also have the account canceled, but your going to need the pin and # that the phone is registered to. A dealer could do it for you if you know the info or you could have the person you bought it from do it for you, or as mentioned above just wait 30 days from the day it became past due.
