Activate an Account

Activating a brightspot account is easy. You can bring your own phone or purchase a brightspot phone.

Visit your local Target store or see Shop Phones & SIMs to purchase a brightspot SIM kit and/or brightspot phone.

If you have an existing phone number that you wish to transfer into brightspot, just let us know when you activate your account. Ensure that you have your previous service provider's account number handy in order to enable successful transfer of your existing phone number.

  • A brightspot phone or your own unlocked phone
