Spanish term or phrase: línea nueva con equipo prepago masivo
Estoy traduciendo unas facturas para un cliente que vende teléfonos celulares. La traducción va para Canadá. En las facturas aparece:

[modelo de teléfono celular]
[código]
[número del celular]
"**Línea nueva con
equipo prepago
masivo**"

Aparece así, separado en diferentes líneas, pero asumo que es una sola idea. He colocado "new line for mass prepaid phone". ¿Me podrían indicar si esta traducción es correcta?

Muchas gracias por adelantado

new line with bulk-prepaid phone
Explanation:
Masivo appears to mean buying minutes in bulk. In my reference example, you buy a large number of wholesale minutes and sell them to other people at a profit. It's hard to know exactly what is meant here with so little context (which is not your fault), but that's the idea.

Or you could say "prepaid phone with bulk minutes".

It probably means the phone comes with a very large number of cheap minutes.
