    Question: I need to swap phones with my wife. If I take the 2 phones to a
    Sprint store can they switch the numbers and is there a charge? Thanks.

    Actually it can be done by customer service if you have an expired phone
    on your account. The problem is that you need a serial number as a
    "place holder" in the middle:
    --1st phone is switched to "place holder"
    --1st phone is switched to 2nd number.
    --2nd phone is switched to 1st number.

    Most CS reps can do this, but the store could also do it. The phone
    call might save you a trip, however.

    Hope this helps,

    The last couple of times I've needed this, the rep was able to accomplish it
    directly, with neither a third phone nor an overnight delay. I do remember
    that the first time I needed this, several years ago and perhaps on a
    different wireless carrier, the rep had to suspend one or both accounts
    overnight. I then had to call back in the morning to complete the switch.

    Thanks for the replys. Since no one mentioned it I assume there is no charge
    for this service.

    I am not sure there is not a $72 charge for 2 activations. Could depend on
    store.

    Well I wouldn't be too happy about that. I would expect a service as simple as
    this to be complementry.

    Group, I took the 2 phones to a Sprint store today and they swaped the numbers
    and there was no charge for those that are interested.
