Thank you for choosing Stream Wireless!
ACTIVATE your DEVICE to get started today.

Let's Activate your Device

If you received an ICCID card (SIM) from us, please confirm your device is unlocked. Once you've confirmed your device is unlocked, please contact Customer Support at 877-743-5893 when you’re ready to activate your phone. We’re available between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. CST Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and closed on Sunday.

If you enrolled with an existing ICCID card, please follow the instructions below to complete activation.


Activating a device with a new Number


  • Simply turn on or restart the device you enrolled on Stream Wireless and the activation process will automatically start within a minute or two.
  • Follow the activation instructions on your device. Once activation is complete, your device will sync with our network and be ready to use within a few minutes.

If activation does not automatically start or is unsuccessful, dial ##873283# on your device (and then press the green call button if you’re using an iPhone). This will restart the activation process.


Activating a device with a Transferred Number


If you're transferring your existing number from another carrier, the transfer process may take several minutes to complete. (In some rare cases, it may take up to 48 hours.) During this time, your device will continue to work on your existing carrier’s network.

  • When the transfer process is complete, your device will no longer have service. At that time, simply turn on or restart the device you enrolled on Stream Wireless and the activation process will start automatically within a minute or two.
  • Follow the activation instructions on your device. Once activation is complete, your device will sync with our network and be ready within a few minutes.

If activation does not automatically start or is unsuccessful, dial ##873283# on your device (and then press the green call button if you’re using an iPhone). This will restart the activation process.

On the GSM network, iPhone users may experience issues with MMS messaging. MMS includes picture, video, and group messaging. If you are unable to send and receive MMS messages, there are some easy alternatives. There are a variety of free messaging apps, such as WhatsApp*, you can download and use as a solution (Keep in mind both the sender and recipient will need to have the messaging app installed in order to send and receive messages). You can also send and receive pictures and videos using your preferred email application already installed on your phone. As an option, you may want to switch to our CDMA network (CDMA device required) or purchase an Android phone for our GSM network.

Wireless hotspot is not currently supported by Stream’s GSM network.
