99% of cell activation fees can be waived by a 5 minute call to customer service. Just a FYI.

but, If getting service thru Amazon or Wirefly, it is difficult to get the activation fee waived

I had no idea anyone still paid an activation fee, man that's straight out of the time of Motorola 8000's and big hair... If they want me as a customer they can put my phones information in their database AND THANK ME FOR CHOOSING THEM..

The poster put it all there for you ...
onlyjayaram said: I found that there is no Activation fee if the old number is ported.
Here is the deal: If you do not have a cell phone number, get a prepaid sim card(less than 10$), activate it and then when you sign up for new service ask for porting.
You cannot port a number away from a carrier if your account is past due ... you are assumed to be a customer in good standing and your business is valued if your current carrier will release your number to a new carrier ... using a prepaid sim is a quick and dirty way to get past the new carriers test to see if they'll grant you the waived fee...
