Steps to activate your Samsung Galaxy Note II
Hands free activation
If this is the first time activating your device, hands free activation automatically starts when you power it on for the first time.
After hands free activation completes, continue to the initial sign in and first use.
Note: If hands free activation fails, continue to the next guide.
One touch programming
If this is not the first time activating your device, or hands free activation did not complete successfully, use one touch programming.
Note: If one touch programming fails, continue to the next guide.
Only use manual programming if both hands free activation and one touch programming did not complete successfully on your Samsung Galaxy Note® II.
Manually programming your device requires a 6-digit programming code and 10-digit MSID. If your device was activated via www.sprint.com/activate, these codes may be found in the phone activation confirmation email or on the programming instructions page displayed after the activation was processed.
If this is a new line of service or you don't have these codes, make an appointment at a nearby Sprint Store for assistance getting your device programmed.
Only reset your device if it was previously active using a different phone number (MDN).
