I am planning on buying a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from Craigslist and I want to know the necessary steps to activate it to my $30/mo prepaid plan. Is this even possible? Let me know, as I plan on replacing my current one on the contract with it.
The Galaxy Note 3 is an awesome device, we want this to be a smooth process for you! It's always good to ensure the phone is unlocked or T-Mobile branded before purchasing the device, if the phone is locked to another company it will not read our SIM card and we don't have any way to supply an unlock code. Please also be aware that if you purchase a phone from Craigslist, it will not come with an active T-Mobile warranty, if anything malfunctions with the device we can troubleshoot but we wouldn't be able to replace it. We've got some great information on bringing your own device to use with our services here: Setup guide to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).Do you have an existing prepaid line that's on the $30 plan, or are you planning on starting the line after you get setup with the phone?
I just bought the phone from someone off of Craigslist yesterday. After the purchase, I went to a T-Mobile store and they had it activated with my plan within 5 minutes. I recommend this phone to anyone who is interested! It's fast, slim and has a great battery, plus you get 4G LTE which is lightning fast. Definitely worth the upgrade
Was it Tmo branded? AND.... can I ask what you paid for it on Craigslist?
Yes, it was T-Mobile branded. I spent $540 for it new in the box, definitely a lot cheaper than purchasing it directly through T-Mobile but there is always a risk involved!
The phone is probably not paid for and the imei will be blacklisted within the month
If u activated it at the store you have the 1500 minute 30 plan not tje 100min 5 g unlimited text plan
The store cannot actovate tje 100 minute plan
I won't get into detail on the guy's story with why he was selling the phone, but he provided me with a receipt along with ID verification. Also, I called T-Mobile directly, along with the store I was purchasing it from, and I was told by both of them that they were able to activate it with the Monthly 4G Plan. Please refrain from commenting on here unless you have anything regarding the phone directly, the phone was payed for in full, so please, don't worry about it. I am still open to answering questions, as long as they are beneficial to you
Call t mobile now and ask whick plan u are on
Unless u are using wrong wording do you mean you were already on the plan and just switched phones?
If so they did not activate a plan
Yes, that is what I took away from the post.
Thanks, dttrost. I just wanted to know what the Note3 was going for on Craigslist. I'm so interested in getting the stylus and big screen back (I started with the original COMPAQ iPaq pda).
