    call your carrier, they can do it for you....nothing you can do on your end.

    Not necessarily, but you'll probably have to get the original account holder to sign it over to you, and to register your name and details with the carrier.

    this why you want to do two things before buying used phones:
    1. make sure service is canceled
    2. imei is clean
