It will take a while. But you can do the following:
it sounds like she blocked your data and text package. she's the only one that can turn it back on. unless we are all totally misunderstanding you, and she simply asked them how to turn off the radio from the phone. if that's the case then restarting it would turn the radio back on.....but i'm guessing that's not what you're talking about.
Guys it sounds to me the OP is indeed trying to test the Waters of a Very Important Person Name Mom At witch there is no Substitute.! I will go with what ButOne suggest that you do.! An not Go behind your MoM's Back. That's Very Disrespectful.. An a big No No if your wanting your Phone to Work Again..B33
How about talking to your mother? I'm assuming a lot about your situation but I would imagine it is unlikely that you can reverse whatever decisions your mother has made for HER account. And based on my assumptions, it seems unlikely that you have the ability to get your own account so it seems to me that you are out of luck...
^All the moral police come out
I wouldn't necessarily say moral police, just trying to keep this person from committing fraud by trying to undo an act of someone who is just managing an account for which they are responsible and under contract.
If on the other hand, the contract is in the name of the OP, then I stand corrected.
If OP were old enough to be charged with fraud then that might be a legitimate excuse, but everyone was treating him/her like a child, so that's obviously not the case.
Not necessarily. You may have to be 18 to enter into a contract with Verizon, but you do not have to be 18 to be charged as an adult when you commit a crime.
I guess I just don't agree with your logic.
You can very well WARN, a child about the consequences of their actions. A teenager who is rebelling against their parents and trying to assert their independence does not mean this "child" could not face consequences if they take actions which could be considered criminal. I DO call these people "children", treat them as such if they act in this manner, they are capable of facing consequences when overstepping laws and NOT warning them about possible consequences can only HURT them if they fail to realize these consequences prior to attempting these acts.
I guess our opinions just don't coincide.
Of course you can warn them. Well, not you necessarily, because it's none of your business, nor mine, nor anyone else's in this thread—that was the reason I commented on everyone's moral policing. OP was asking a simple question which sought a simple answer. If you don't, for your own personal reasons, feel comfortable answering, then don't.
So in retrospect, with the question being "If the account owner disables my cellular phone, how can I get it working again?" And the answer is... "Ask the account owner to re-activate it."
I am perfectly comfortable answering the question. No mention of age or moral policing. Should make everyone happy!
>Posted edited to remove instructions that could lead to a fraudulent act< But if she's paying the bills, she's going to see that you turned it back on and I'm guessing you're probably going to get into even bigger trouble (especially if you managed to impersonate her or speak on her behalf). Best bet, talk to your mom about what she wants from you in order to get it turned back on.

Don't you think this is the wrong direction to direct a young mind, you are informing them to defy their parent? and not to forget that some of the information you are saying would be needed to access account would lead to ID Fraud..
I cant believe this is even being suggested and justified...

Heh, calm down. If you had read my post, you'd note that I actually told the kid/person to talk to their mother because otherwise, it would result in more trouble. At no point did I tell him to defy his mother. My intention was not to tell him how to get around it but to let him know that there are going to be larger consequences for those actions (now granted, I might have given a bit too much information) but a whole conversation on the ethics of all this has erupted separately.
So yeah, my bad, but it wasn't my intention. Everyone can get down from their high horses now . . .
I have learned its best to not give a suggestion to a person if I dont want to see them get into trouble from my suggestion... Even when you dont intend to encourage them to do something wrong, if you suggest a solution a number of users have habits to still try them out.
That's all I am saying..
