  • Hi Thomas,
    The reason your device cannot BYOD successfully is because it did not meet our Financial Eligibility Check, for more information please visit here:

    Let me know if you have anymore questions, thanks!

    Hello Darla_A,
    but I have check the MEID, and it's clear and ready to activate with sprint and it's not report as stolen.
  • Thomas,
    You may try going through the BYOD process again, make sure you are inputting the correct information, have sufficient funds on your credit cards, and are using a new email. From my end I am getting the FED warning, but you can try again. If it doesn't work, then the problem is something with the FED.

    Let me know if you are able to activate it. Thanks!

    @Darla_A @Thomas Chan Hey folks, Sprint issued a memo for the 5s and 5c having issues with activation as of right now. I would advise waiting another 30 days and trying again so that the device can clear. You can receive an approximate date that the phone will be FEC cleared by dialing *2 and then pressing the prompt for balance. The day after the due date should be the day that the device can activate.
