Activate your phone

Activate your phone

Depending on your account or how and where you purchased your phone, it may be ready to use or you may need to activate it on the Sprint network.
  • If you purchased your phone at a Sprint Store, it is probably activated and ready to use.
  • If you received your phone in the mail and it is for a new Sprint account or a new line of service, it is designed to activate automatically. When you turn the phone on for the first time, you should see a Setting up connections screen. Follow the onscreen instructions to continue.
  • If you received your phone in the mail and you are activating a new phone for an existing number on your account (you’re swapping phones), you can activate on your computer online or directly on your phone.
