  4. When my service is reconnected, will I be charged to re-download any apps I removed from my device before I suspended service?

    Yes, you’ll be charged for the data used to download the app according to your current data plan. However, in some cases, you may not be charged the price of the app again.

  5. Can I reconnect my mobile service online if I have a pending order on my account?

    No, if you currently have a pending order on your account, you won’t be able to reconnect your mobile service online until the pending order is complete.

    Note: An Account Owner or Account Manager can request a pending order to be removed from an account by calling Customer Service at (800) 922-0204. Learn more about account access roles. If a pending order is removed, then it’s canceled and the order will have to be placed again.

  6. What if I find my lost device after already resuming service on a different device?

    The lost device you found will still be blocked from connecting to our network, so simply switching service to that device won’t work.

    Call Customer Service at *611 on your mobile phone, and they’ll be able to remove the block. Once that’s complete, you’ll have the option of switching service to that device.
