    Hello Everyone. I'm new to the site and before signing up was just browsing through a few threads. I must say there are many talented people on this website that are very helpful and polite! I really liked that this seemed to be a community where people really want to help others by giving advice or sharing experiences. That's why I joined. :)
    I do have a question, I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 active that was on an installment plan with AT&T with primary account holder being my ex roommate. I was on the account but since I've moved out he has finally deactivated my phone. One day I was having a convo with my Aunt and the next my phone says SIM PROVISIONED MMS2 (not sure about the mms part,I could have that wrong). I was wondering is there any way to reactivate my wireless line?
    Thank You Kindly!

    Welcome to Android Forums!

    Your best bet is to contact the carrier. They should be able to reinstate your number on your own account. Let us know how it goes.

    It's great to have you here :)

    Do you really think AT&T would reactivate my SIM even tho my account was paid off. I had AT&T NEXT making monthly installment payments and now I'm off the account. When I view the website it says my account was paid off.

    The previous account that your roommate had will not be a factor here. You would open a new account, your own account, and port the same number to the same SIM. Shouldn't be a problem.

    I apologize I rushed thru when reading your 1st comment and didn't realize that you said reactivate under MY OWN ACCOUNT. Absolutely makes sense, must think I'm dense huh, lol. I promise I'm not tho , was just in a state of mind where I quickly wanted my phone reactivated.
    THANK YOU MUCH, ALL HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED. Btw, thank you for welcoming me to the community....happy to be here!!
