    See my post regarding Sprint PCS CSR, as near as I can tell the on-line
    activation only works for new phones. And barely at that. For an ESN swap,
    especially to an odler handset they pop up some generic messages about it
    being unable to process.

    Well, as long as you at least try, you don't have to pay the ESN swap fee.
    Just mention it to them when you call *2.

    did you verify that? Again, please see my post about SPCS CSR, sometime
    last week.

    Google has it

    I tried to activate two phones in the last several months online. Both
    failed (Sanyo 4900 and 8100). Each time I had to plead my case to avoid the
    activation fee. It wasn't as easy as simply stating that I had previously
    tried to activate online.

    Now that I think of it, I've *never* been able to activate online.

    Re: On Line Esn changes

    last week, I had to do an esn swap, twice, really first time wasn't able
    to try on line change, but while on a non vision phone, although I
    never followed thru, appeared that it would work--again on switch back
    to vision phone, didn't use online--switched back, first time mention
    there would be no charge, second time, didn't come up--however, I would
    suspect that they would go by what's published on their web page.

    I've never been activate online either. But last week when I tried to
    switch to an a500 on a620/vga1000, I had to call CSR and there was no
    problem or charge. I just told them I tried to activate online but
    failed.

    Where does one go online to do an ESN change to switch phones?

    If it doesnt work online, then you call *2 and HOPE they don't hit you with a
    $36 Activation Fee. Also hope for a CSR that knows how to do an ESN swap. Often
    there's a delay whil;e the hunt for their instructions. Thats one advantage of
    having a phone through your employer. Business accounts don't get charged
    Activation Fees.

    Does work if you are not on a vision plan.
