Trying to swap device

Re: Trying to swap device

Looking for some help with switching phones. I just bought a used LG V40 which is supposed to be unlocked and there should not be any accounts associated with the phone. But when i enter the IMEI to activate, it tells me that the phone is already active. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: Trying to swap device

I have an LG V40 that is unlocked. I bought it through eBay, and neither i or the person i bought it from can figure out why it says already active when i enter the IMEI. I really would like to use this phone on Boost but i am getting stumped at every turn. Is it possible that someone could have stolen the IMEI, as a picture of it was posted with the sale ad? thanks

Hello, @charlescannon71. Thanks for reaching out to us. Let's take a closer look. Are you trying to activate a Boost Mobile phone or an unlocked device? What error message are you getting? 

Re: Trying to swap device

Its an unlocked device. And its saying that this phone is not eligible for swap. What does that mean?

@charlescannon71. Did you check the device eligibility? If not, please visit the following link: https://boost.co/2trmLAx. Just enter the IMEI of the handset and click Continue.

 

If eligible, you'll need to purchase a SIM card compatible with the device. The website will give you the option to place the order.
