    LG L86c not pre=activated Net10 won't activate it

    Hi,
    Just purchased an LG L86c on Amazon-refurb from reputable seller. Advertised as Net10 phone. NET10 tells me that they cannot activate this phone because it was not pre-activated at point of purchase (Walmart) and it looks to them as if it is still in the store. (Read: STOLEN.) I have a message sent to seller asking for proof of purchase, but in the meantime, is there any way for me to activate this phone?
    Thanks!
    Deb

    Not necessarily stolen, possible just not scanned at checkout so that N10 receives electronic notification it was sold. The problem will be if there is no WM receipt that shows the serial number of the phone you have in hand.

    contact seller.tell seller what net10 told you.either seller refunds money or replaces the phone.

    net10 not at fault here.could have been a bad scan at check out counter.but give seller chance to make it right.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm just impatient, and got a good deal-IF I can get it to work. I'm sure that the seller will make it right given the feedback score tenure and number of transactions this seller has on Amazon. That being said, I think that it is unlikely that they have a receipt from Walmart. Whether they have another LG L86c is another question. You roll the dice, you take your chances.
