I'm so glad to see that your original phone is working. Thank you for sharing this discovery. I know how much of a hassle it can be to switch phones. The last thing we want is a simple security measure to be a frustrating process for you. If you haven't already activated your original device yet then please allow me to be the one to assist in getting this taken care of. May I ask what make and model device do you have? If it's a 4G device then the equipment can be activated by doing a super easy device change on My Verizon and a sim card transfer. If it is a 3G device then simply send me a private message with your full name, mobile number, and a brief summary of the issue. I can get this taken care of for you. I'm looking forward to your next reply.
