Sprint contract Q??

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
