There have been no changes to the basic procedure for years so the other thread should be valid.maybe things are a bit different now?
You could do both transfer and activate (or just the transfer), with the receiver being at seller's house?Just transferred a 9200. That's how it works. I was at the sellers house and called Bell to move it to my account. Gave them the r00 number and smart card number. Bell rep talked to seller then to me and it was done.
I initially wanted to do the same, but I ended up going to seller just to pay for the unit and to transfer it into my acct, then once I brought it home and hooked it up, I called them for the activation.They did it all and when I got home I plugged it in. The rep wanted me to call back when I got home and I just asked him 'can't you do it now?'.
