I just bought a new phone on ebay, and I was curious as to if I'd have to pay an activation fee for this phone? It's a used phone, if that makes any difference.
(you may have seen my other question about data plans. I must say, I am a cell phone idiot. 😕 )
If you already have service with Verizon then no.
This is just a device id change if you already have service.
If you don't have service with Verizon and you are either adding a line to someones account or starting your own. YES
Unless you have an employee discount (ELEU) that is eligible to waive these charges. Such as... Example: USPS employee discount would waive these fees.
