    I hope someone can help me. I bought a used galaxy s3 for my son. The screen says choose a language. Then is says here is your phone number????
    Why does it have a phone number? I haven't put it on my Verizon account yet. The phone number it shows has a completely different area code than I do. When I add this phone to my Verizon account will Verizon give me a new number? With the right area code?

    Sounds like they didn't deactivate the phone when they sold it. Who knows, maybe the SIM card is still in there.
    Anyway, you need to get Verizon to add it to your account, and provide a new SIM. Then go through the setup.
    Edit: and yes, Verizon will give you a new number.

    Thank you so much! When I got the phone I opened it up and found there was two places for sim cards, but there was only one in it. I knew the one was where you put a card if you wanted more memory. I thought the other one ran the phone or something.
    My son was disappointed when I couldn't figure it out. You know Moms are suppose to know everything. You just made his day! And made me look smart, but I won't take all the credit

    One slot is for the Sim Card and the other is for an External SD card as you say for more storage.
