Activating Your 4G LTE™ Android™ Tablet


Follow these instructions to activate your new or Certified Pre-Owned 4G LTE Android tablet.
  1. Activate your 4G LTE service or transfer your SIM card.

    If your new tablet arrived with a Verizon Wireless SIM card already inserted:

    Call (877) 807-4646 and follow the prompts to activate it.

    Have your Customer Receipt with you because you may be asked to confirm information from it, such as the mobile number assigned to your tablet. If prompted, follow the instructions to accept Customer Agreement.

    If you are using your existing Verizon Wireless 4G LTE SIM card:

    1. Remove the SIM card from your old device without touching the gold electrical contacts.

    2. Align the notched corner of the 4G LTE SIM card and then insert it into the SIM card slot or tray. For tablets with a slot, ensure that the SIM card clicks into place.

      Note: The actual insertion process varies by device, so refer to your user guide for instructions on how to insert the SIM card. You can find your user guide by going to the Support page specific to your device and clicking on User Guide.

  2. Set up your new tablet.

    1. Charge your tablet.

    2. Power on the tablet.

    3. Follow the on-screen instructions to activate your tablet, set up a Google account, and download or enable Backup Assistant1 to transfer your contacts. Refer to the How to Use Guide: Backup Assistant for instructions on backing up your contacts.


      • If you are a "pay as you go" customer activating 4G LTE service:

        Select Sign Up Now when prompted to set up Verizon Wireless Data Service during initial setup.

      • If you are a "pay as you go" customer activating service at a later time:

        1. Tap No Thanks when prompted to set up Verizon Wireless Data Service.

        2. When you choose to activate service, tap Settings, tap Wireless Settings and tap View Verizon Account.

        3. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish setting up your account.

      Your tablet is ready for use.
