How to Activate an iPhone?
To activate an iPhone, we would need to have some things handy such as USB cable, credit card, dock, cellular phone service contract, iTunes app, and the iPhone. Avoid online ‘‘cheats’’ claiming to allow you activate an iPhone without a cellular phone contract. These cheats are not only unreliable but also illegal. To activate your iPhone you need to have a legal contract with a cellular phone provider. In addition, you also need a computer to transfer information to and from your iPhone.
Follow these simple steps below to activate your iPhone:
1.First, you need to get a cellular phone contract before you can activate your iPhone. Cellular phone carriers entered into some form of understanding with Apple Inc.
2. Next, install the iTunes on your computer and create an account for it. If you already have an account, just make sure that your iTunes is up-to-date. We need the iTunes to sync information to and from your computer.
3. Connect the USB cable to the iPhone and then to the computer. You should only use the computer port and not the keybaord’s as the keyboard port is not powerful enough to support the sync process.
4.Insert your iPhone in the dock. The dock is the small holder that came along with your iPhone. You need it to keep the iPhone upright throughout the syncing period and while charging.
5. The iTunes application should automatically open the minute you connect the iPhone, however, if it does not, then you need to open it manually.
6. Once you open the iTunes, the steps are easy enough to follow. The wizard will now help you to activate and sync your iPhone with your computer.
7.Wait for a while for the activation to get through. Your chosen cellular operator would send you a confirmation text informing you whether the activation is successful or not.
8.During the activation process the screen will display ”sync in progress’ ‘and after activation, the screen will display ”iPhone sync is complete’’.
9.Congratulation, you now know how to activate an iPhone.
Remember to unplug the iPhone from the USB cable after the action.
If you bump into any problem, contact the customer care of your cellular phone provider immediately. To activate an iPhone in the U.S. you need an Internet connection, a valid social security number; and U.S. iTunes store account. The computer must be running on Mac OS X or Windows. In addition, it is best to use the SIM card that came with your iPhone. This is true because not all SIM cards can fit into the SIM slot of the iPhone.
