Can I activate an old VZW prepay for temporary use?
I have an old Nokia 2366i that I tried to activate on PagePlus but the CSR informed me that it was a prepay. PagePlus will not activate VZW prepay phone. I need to give one of my employees a phone for just a week, so I would like to put maybe 100 to 200 minutes on this one and let him use it. Then he can keep it or throw it away--it isn't worth keeping.
Can I just buy a a card wherever and add the minutes? Do I need to activate it first or do anything first?
You will need a card, the smallest one is $15.00. Dial *22898 on the phone and follow the instructions to activate it with a new number. The $1.99 daily plan is probably your best choice, $15.00 buys 7 days of unlimited calls. Then you will need to call *611 and apply the card. Finally call *611 again and choose English or Spanish, and the phone is ready to use. If he's not interested in texting, use the phone's web browser to access My Verizon and add the text block.
