Activation & Setup

Activate Your LG Optimus S™

Please don't turn on your phone until prompted to during the activation process. We want to ensure that your activation goes as smoothly as possible.

You can activate your phone using our easy self-activation instructions. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

Prefer to call us to activate? Please use another phone to call our customer service team at 800-411-0848. If you're transferring the number from your current phone to your new phone, please don't use either phone when you call us.

This call can take up to 30 minutes. If you'd like help setting up email on your phone, have your user name and password handy.

Please note: Once your number has transferred, you will receive an e-mail from us confirming that the transfer is complete. Before you can start using your phone, you will need to follow a few simple steps to complete the activation. Please click here for instructions.
