Bought a phone off someone, but I don't know if I'll be able to activate it.

I recently bought off a phone from someone. Checked esn, imei and everything else, it all checked out fine. However when I went to About Device, it says what the phone number is, but I haven't activated the phone yet. Will I still be able to activate it for my own line? I own a Galaxy S3.

Yes, you will be able to activate the phone. Once you go through the programming process, it will prompt you to a screen to edit your number.
