Wirefly's Order Process
The Wirefly Order Process

Wirefly Learn » Resources » Wirefly's Order Process

May 14th, 2009


Activating a cell phone can be different from buying other electronics such as a TV or computer. For orders that include new wireless service or a contract extension, you are not just getting a cell phone shipped to you, but are also getting a monthly account with your cell phone carrier.

Tracking Your cell phone
Order at Wirefly.com

To track a specific order, go to www.whereismyorder.com. The WhereIsMyOrder.com site provides you with all the status information available for your order. You can also view and print your sales receipts and rebate forms, as well as track the delivery of your package once we release it to the shipping company.

Most approvals are received quickly, but if your carrier needs additional information before approving your service order, you will receive an email from Wirefly asking for this information on their behalf. Your order status can also be found at our customer service center.

You will receive e-mails to confirm when your cell phone has been approved and activated, and another containing your FedEx shipping details

99% of orders approved and activated by 7pm Eastern Time are shipped on the same day

  • Carrier Approval

    If your order includes a new wireless account, then your application for service is automatically submitted to the carrier you’ve chosen for approval.

    If your cell phone order includes a contract extension from your current cell phone provider, then your information is submitted to confirm that your account is eligible to receive a discount on a new cell phone.

  • Order Assembly and Testing

    Our distribution center staff selects the items you have ordered from inventory. For all cell phone activations, we physically open the box, and we use test batteries to power up the cell phone and ensure that everything is functioning as it should.

  • Cell Phone Activation

    If you have ordered a new service plan or contract extension, Wirefly then programs and schedules the activation of your new cell phone from our production line. Step-by-step instructions for completing the activation are inserted into the shipping box.

  • Transferring Your Phone Number

    If you requested to transfer your existing number to your new cell phone, we will initiate the transfer or “port” and when possible we will schedule the transfer to occur after your phone arrives. Additional information about the porting process will be included with your shipment.

  • Shipping Preparation

    Once your purchase is ready for packaging, Wirefly’s trained warehouse staff carefully packs your order and passes it on to our Quality Assurance team which re-scans each cell phone and accessory to ensure that your order is complete.

  • Shipped

    Wirefly ships your order via FedEx based on the shipping preferences you selected when you placed your order. If you selected 2nd business day delivery, your order will arrive within 2 business days of the ship date. If you selected next business day delivery, your order will arrive within 1 business day of the ship date. You can track the status of your delivery via the FedEx site.

    For your security, FedEx may require a signature at time of delivery. If nobody is available to receive the package, the driver may leave a slip that you can sign to allow delivery without a signature.

  • I needed to port my numbers and I selected the phones and filled out the info but I used my son card and for some reason they set the account up in his name with my social but I just called them and kept getting the message to enter ur tracking number and once the recording is complete it hangs up..so what I did was called and talked to the sales dept they transferred me to customer service and I corrected the name issue..but before I called wirefly I contacted Sprint and did my credit app and got the approval from them because an app is active for days..so once I corrected the name issue my order went right thru..the promos I received was no activation fees from wirefly and 125 each line in credits for porting my numbers so that over 700 dollars in savings..which 500 dollars have been applied in credits for bill pay or accessories.. U have to stay on top of things because wirefly is a third party company..

      Hello I just ordered my phone and I have not recieved my internet comformation but have my order number 368700855, in which I am unable to track. So could you please it me know when I should be expecting my phone, the representative told me 3 business days and I see online that you delivery via fedex at no charge maybe 1-2 days.
      thank you

      • Ms. Burke, thanks for ordering from Wirefly!

        I checked your order and you should have been sent an e-mail asking for your MetroPCS account number. If you did not receive that e-mail, please check your spam mailbox to see if it is there. When you ordered your phone, you listed your phone number as your MetroPCS account number and that isn’t the same thing. We will need your MetroPCS account number (and possibly your PIN) in order to transfer the number to your new phone and carrier. If you need someone to help you through the process, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with a customer service person.

    i submit canceled my order and my card was ranned for 29 dollars i canceled it before it processed and was told that i would rec a refund withtin 24hrs which i have not rec i don’t have my order number but i was told it can be pulled up with phone#954-687-7772.

    • Nerline, the authorization for $29 was released on 8/18/11, and should have cleared your bank account. Since it was an authorization and not an actual charge, it will not show as a credit, but it will be as if it never happened. If you are seeing a $29 charge on your account, please let me know and I will get it off your account.

    I order a phone sunday, but i have been trying to track my order.So when i track it say i got the wrong # and y is that and my # is 380893283

    • Tiffany, that is a good order number and it appears to be for your order. I checked with customer service and was told that you should call 888-843-2485 to discuss the order.

      Thanks for thinking of Wirefly!

  • How come I ordered my phone. I was approved by Sprint. The phone is scheduled for delivery 08/13, but Sprint says my account is already suspended/cancelled. I’m confused.

    • Brian, if you give me an order number, I will look it up and see what the status of your order is.

    Why is my order cancelled? I did nothing to cancell it. I just purchased two phones and I need to know why is it doing this to me. Order #527443948

    • Issaic, sorry it’s taken a while for me to get back to you. I tried to answer your question last week, but the system logged me out and wouldn’t log me back in!

      I checked into your order and all I can say is that you didn’t pass Wirefly’s very tough requirements. However, you should be able to get the phones directly from the carrier, so that is your best bet.

      Bob at Wirefly

  • Confused, if you give me an order number, I will find out the status of your order.

    Thanks for shopping with Wirefly!

    Is this company a scam? Has ANYONE had a good purchase through them?

    • Bethany, Wirefly has processed literally millions of orders over the years. So yes, many people have had a good purchase experience with Wirefly, and Wirefly has plenty of return customers.

      Bethany, I have ordered several phones through wirefly, and have never had an issue. It’s a great choice if you’re looking for a phone, but the carrier has it for a higher price. Wirefly generally has it for less or even free.

    You have been charging my account $4.99 since July 30, 2010. Since this is a business account, and a minimal charge, I just noticed it today, May 1, 2011. I called the credit card company and they told me you are actually charging me monthly, not like a bank draft, but actually keying in a charge. STOP!!!! I have no idea what it’s for, and you have already made $49.90 from me for some unknown and illegal reason. The credit card # has been changed, so contact me for more money. Good luck!!

I have contacted you 3x and spoke to live perople and each time after 5 min. they place me on hold and then hang up! Rude and terrible customer service! I am not happy!

  • My first order with wirefly was on the 11th. then i found out days later they needed more info before they send out my phone. When that was takin care of i still didnt get it. when i called them on the matter they said ur droid 2 will be sent soon. that wasnt the phone i ordered i told them. now i was mad. had to re do everything.its been 2 weeks now and still nothing!! NOT HAPPY!!!!

    Just received my so called free gift on order #415755913 your “Jolt Mobile Power pack. I notice a charge of $49.99 that was put on my charge without my approval as this was a free gift offer for my ordering 2 new HTC aria cell phones. Please contact me within 24 hours or I will stop ALL payments made to CELL STORES and Wirefly because of this matter. I was told by your gal and her supervisor that this would be free. Please advise by return E-mail and/or call me on 561-289-0755. Thank you Al Barkov 12/27/10

  • Holy $%!# Batman! I never comment to stuff like this but you gotta be kidding me, are some of the posters below that stinking stupid?! Look, if you have an IQ equal to a box of rocks then you probably do NOT need a cell phone and most certainly do NOT need to order one online! And for crying out loud… DO NOT under any circumstances breed!

    The prices are good. The process is easy. However, they need to do something about their shipping. 2 times within a month (maybe month and a half) timeframe I ordered phones. Both times when Wirefly transmitted the shipping info to FedEx, my apartment number didn’t transfer, and it caused a delay in me getting my package. The first time was free shipping, the second I paid extra for expedited shipping. They HAVE the right address on file, it’s just an issue that for some reason the apartment number isn’t transferred over to FedEx. (I had to use Line 2 on the address portion because my street name is too long to fit that and the apartment number on 1 line). Other than that, I’m satisfied.

  • ya i agree with gp. most of those comments sounded so so stupid. how the hell are we supposed to know what lg phone carolyn is talking about? all she said is that she didnt want the red one. and i want to tell kiki that if she really doesnt know how to figure out if her credit card was deducted from, then she shouldnt have one. id like to encourage everyone to use correct punctuation. no one can understand what some of the comments are talking about. thank you :)

  • Most of these comments sound idiotic.
