I wanto buy a second hand Walka on gumtree, will it be an easy process to simply register my own premium subscription to a walka that was already registered with someone elses subscription?

Yip. Other guy must just contact MC and have his subs removed. Then it's a normal registration for you

You need to call the center, they can process the change of ownership with you on the phone.

So, if the seller didn't "disconnect", how are you going to prove that you're the new owner ? Call Centre can't just change ownership....

The call center will confirm with the previous owner, prior to processing the change.
