    Back when this phone came out I was very excited to get it but wanted to wait for the price to go down a bit. The phone is 299.99 on amazon. I have never have any trouble buying from them but because this is a phone do you guys think there will be any trouble activating it?. thanks.

    It's easy. When I got my esteem I just dialed *228 from the new phone and change phone (forgot what the option was called) and it sent me to a representative which switch my service from my old phone to the new one

    i bought a lg connect 4g (metropcs) phone on letstalk.com. my card was charged and then i received an email saying my order needed to be verified. i called and they asked for my last 4 SSN...gave it...then he asks for my full SSN...i said i didn't know it (I do, though)

    question...is it safe to give my full SSn to letstalk.com?

    to approve my order, the CS says i will have to give the SSn
