How do I Replace A Lost or Stolen Phone?
If an Airtalk subscriber has their phone lost or stolen, notify them immediately. AirTalk has the right to terminate you from the phone program if they determine terms and conditions are violated. Customers must provide valid personal information to receive a new mobile device from Link Wireless. Therefore, customers who wish to replace their lost or stolen device must contact Airtalk Wireless within forty-five (45) days and agree to pay any applicable fees associated with returning the device through Link Lifeline.
Temporary Deactivation of Your Lost or Stolen Phone
Airtalk will deactivate the account of any subscriber who loses their handset and suspends their account if they fail to notify Airtalk Wireless of the missing device. Airtalk will provide subscribers with a free replacement device and a new SIM card. The customer must then activate the new phone and can continue to use their Airtalk service. Suppose a malfunctioning phone is sent back to Airtalk Wireless within thirty (30) days of delivery. In that case, they will send out a replacement device free of charge. However, more than thirty (30) days have passed since the delivery date.
Reactivation of your New or Recovered Phone
Link Wireless also reserves the right to terminate your own from the ACP phone program at any time without notice. The use of mobile devices on Airtalk Wireless’s Lifeline Program is limited to one per customer. Additionally, the customer must then activate the new phone and can continue to use their Airtalk service. Suppose a malfunctioning phone is sent back to Airtalk Wireless within thirty (30) days of delivery. In that case, they will send out a replacement device free of charge. However, more than thirty (30) days have passed since the delivery date.
In that case, there will be an additional fee for replacing the device. Additionally, suppose a lost or stolen phone is found within thirty (30) days after its reported missing or stolen. In that case, the subscriber can activate it again on their Airtalk plan. Report a lost or stolen wireless phone by calling Airtalk Customer Service at +1 (855) 924-7825.
