    Can a deactivated phone be reactivated with a new #? How long do you need to wait?

    Just canceled a prepaid phone a week ago, can I use it again on prepaid under a new account? Will it get a free $10?

    Only new phones get the $10. Considering you are the owner of the phone and your name is on the account I don't see why you can't reactivate it with a new number because you can give yourself permission to detach it from the old account and put on the new one as the case may be.

    If you canceled it and the ESN is clean, you can dial *22888 to open a new line. The $10 credit is once in the life of the phone. With a phone that has already redeemed it, you will need to add money to make the new line work (But, a $15.00 card will give 60 days of service). If you just activate and leave the balance at zero, the phone and line will get stuck in limbo.
