    Anyone every tried this?

    Buy new phone, get new service, new number.
    Go into SprintPCS store and ask them to swap numbers on the phones.
    Cancel service on old phone after some time?

    In the end you get the old number on the new phone. Would this work?
    Would there be a service charge for the number swap? Would the
    cancellation be held up?

    I believe if you try to cancel the new service as per the 14 day trial you
    have to return all equipment as well.

    Could be wrong though.

    Yup, and the new line would be on contract, so later wouldn't work
    either.

    You may do better than I, but I couldn't even get them to change numbers
    on the two phones I had--there was no equipment return issue. total
    blocked wall when tried--worked out another solution, thank goodness.

    Because someone cancels service within the 14 day trial period,
    they would not have to return the phone to RadioShack, Best Buy, e-bay,
    their brother, or wherever.

    Probably not, but then they'd owe Radio Shack, et al for the instant=20
    rebate.

    My girlfriend actually did this...
    She added a line for her daughter with a new phone (Samsung A-500),
    after about a month and a half of her daughter abusing the minutes, she
    dropped the line, and had her number switched to the new phone. So, it
    IS possible with the add-a-line option.

    You're probably right, my phones were not add a line accounts, but were
    seperate. That may have been the problem I had getting a change.
