    check out this thread at Howards about VZW users with more than 1 phone
    swapping their ESN's daily.

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthr...threadid=180033

    Has anyone tried that with Sprint? Do they have a policy for/against
    it?

    I have always thought of new/replacment phone activations as kind of a
    one-way exercise with Sprint. It would be nice to think I could get
    another phone and be able to swap between them.

    So long as the web page is working, switch it all you like.

    That is weird. The following is a cut and paste from the thread. To
    find the full thread go to howardforums.com and then go to the Verizon
    board. under that you will find a thread on ESN swaps.

    My work takes me to some pretty dirty and dusty environments. I would
    like to purchase a second phone for these times. I need a
    recommendation for a durable "candy bar style" phone with excellent RF
    that can be purchased for a reasonable price. (main phone is an VX6000)
    and second, is there a limit to how many times you can change your ESN
    online? Thanks in advance for any replys.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    The 5185i is a CDMA phone that is very durable. I had mine for two
    years and it survived a lot of abuse including falling off the roof of
    my car at 40 mph when I accidently left it there. I still see this
    phone available at Radio Shack and its on eBay too. I actually
    activated mine a few weeks ago just to see if the online ESN change
    would let me do it. Still worked fine.

    As far as there being a limit to online ESN changes, I don't think
    there is one. I activate my Moto T720 a couple times a week so I can
    connect to the Express Network using my N&W minutes. I re-activate my
    vx6000 once I am finished. I've done this at least 20 times and haven't
    encountered any problems thus far.

    Verizon, AT&T, and Cingular do not charge for ESN Changes nor do they require
    'contract renewal.' Sprint, on the other hand, is lackluster when it comes to
    this department.
