Sprint contract Q??

I know this is a little off topic but I thought with the knowledge of Sprint’s operation around here I can find out a definitely answer (I hope). I have two lines (A + B and I upgraded 1 line (A) to the S3 back in November, my second line ( B is off contract but that’s the line I use with the S3 (A. has no usage/phone broke). The phone number/line I upgraded the S3 with is still under contract (A). I want to switch the phone numbers around and put B under the contract and A on the non contract. Does anyone know if that’s possible and if so what’s it called because customer service is saying they can’t do it? My other option is to sell my S3 to buy out the contract and go back to my 3d so is there any options anyone knows about? BTW… the (A) line is on seasonal hold where I’m only paying 9$ a month for now.

If I understand correctly, if you move the S3 back to Line A, it would be on the phone number you wanted. Correct? Then you could remove seasonal standby on Line A and put Line B on Seasonal Standby. Then when you're ready to use the upgrade on Line B, you can take it off Seasonal Standby. As long as you are off contract when you put the line on Seasonal Standby, you will have no problem with upgrades when you take it off.

 

You can put any phone on any line at any time. The phones are not on contract, the line is. No matter which line you put the S3 (or even on no line), the line you extended the contract on when you purchased it is where the contract resides.

Seasonal standby is weird, as you can only do it for 6 months, and it pushes your contract end date forward. What you're describing sounds like a simple flip-flop. Any Sprint store should be able to handle it; we do it all the time.

    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.
