Hi, essentially I would like to swap my current device (nexus 5) with a lg tribute 5. I gave my GF my nexus and want to deactivate it so she can use it with her carrier and I'd like to swap in a the tribute on my account. Thanks in advance.

    @devin,
    Do you have the Tribute activated on its own email account? If not, may use the link on this page and let me know once you have it activated-

    Message me after the phone is activated and I will get you set up on the swap.

    Hope this helps,

    Alas I have tried activating the Tribute via the .99 byod but get;

    "We're experiencing an issue with your provided device ID.
    To complete your activation, please call 866-279-2662."

    When I call in the customer rep told me he could activate it but not at the BYOD special's price, rather $20 :(

    I think to speed up the process I'd just as well deactivate the nexus 5 to free it up and can work on setting up another device at a different time.

    I'v PM'd you my MEID and ICCID's and hope that will be helpful.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi NJ, I'm good to go. I did try phone deactivation again and this time it went through without a hitch. Thanks for your time
