Are you looking for mobile devices and cellular services for older adults? Then, you may choose GreatCall products and services.
GreatCall, now Lively, is a connected health technology company that offers “health and safety products and services,” including mobile phones, wearable devices, and more. Aging adults can access technology with a Lively device.
All Lively devices come equipped with an Urgent Response icon that connects you to an IAED-Certified Agent for instant help. Also, you can speak to a registered nurse or doctor anytime with Urgent Care.
When you purchase a Lively mobile phone or device, you must activate it before using it. For online activation, you will require a computer with an internet connection to access greatcall.com/activate and complete the process.
Let us walk you through the activation procedure step-by-step.
Three Steps to Activate Lively Mobile at greatcall.com/activate
The following steps will only be applicable if you buy your Lively mobile device directly from GreatCall. So, you may skip these steps.

It’s a three-step process –
- Determine where you purchased the product.
- Go online at greatcall.com/activate to activate your GreatCall account.

You can now follow the on-screen prompts to activate your device.
