Steps to activate your Samsung Galaxy S III
Note: Before you try these steps, check the Sprint coverage map and verify that you are in an area with good coverage.
Hands free activation
If this is the first time activating your phone, hands-free activation automatically runs in the background as you go through the initial sign-in process.
Update the data profile
If this is not the first time activating your phone or hands-free activation did not complete successfully, update the data profile.
Manually program your phone
If hands-free activation did not complete successfully or the data profile did not update, manually program your phone.
If you're having trouble activating your Samsung Galaxy S® III, make an appointment at a convenient Sprint Store.
