Nice to meet you, *****!
Did you try anything to renew it yourself prior to our conversation?

Customer Replay

I could´t

Can you elaborate on this, please?

Customer Replay

I attempted to renew the service but received it with a new device. I've already changed my old magic phone number to this latest payment, but I can't get it to work. I suppose I should wait for the mail with the new device, which I do not want. If possible, I'd like to reuse the old device.

To reactivate the old number you would need to dod that
What happens when you press on "renew with device"?

Customer Replay

Nothing, there is no hyperlink.

You want to use the old device as backup, right?

Customer Replay

What I really want is for my old magic phone number working properly asap to avoid having to wait for the new device. If the old one can be used as a backup and that's the way to make it happen, that would be fantastic.

Alright, the issue is that the old number would work, but the old device got disabled by the magic jack company. So you cannot use the old one as a back up.

Customer Replay

got it

Glad to clarify

Customer Replay

so, what is the best way to solve this issue?

Currently the only option for you is to wait for the new device

Today I've spent the entire day wallowing in system pliegues. I greatly appreciate human assistance because 99.9% of bots are terrible.

I'm glad to assist, and yeah, no bot can replace a human interaction:)
