How do I activate a new android mobile phone

I have just bought a new mobile for my wife. It is an Alcatel U3. The activation instructions are limited in the extreme. I have found that I have to include a password for the activation. Can this be my or my wife's or does it need something special?

Can't answer in detail.

Each carrier may use different steps and then Android menus tend to change over time.

I'd just call your carrier's support to have them walk you through this one.

I think you have to take it to the shop from where you have bought it. They may help you to activate this.
