Assumption of liability

My girlfriend is currently on her Fathers sprint plan and she is looking to get on my account, I am looking to add her to my account! I currently have the iPhone $50 unlimited plan and I absolutely don't want to lose that!

 

How much would it cost, I tried looking on sprint and I could not find anything really? And how to I go through the assumption process??

The online process can be found here: http://support.sprint.com/support/article/Customer_Instructions_for_Change_of_Ownership/2a4c5654-b645-4613-8262-a689a275e885#!

 

This can also be done in corporate stores I know, both account holders just have to be present to sign stuff. I don't know if 3rd party stores can do it or not.

Sprint branded 3rd party stores (Preferred Retailers) can also do it. Like Rocket87 said, if an IB is involved it has to be done on the website.

I did it over the phone, just had to conference in the previous account owner and she had to give her PIN, then she was able to hang up and I answered all the questions to create my own account. It was painless, but this was 5+ years ago.

I did it a few yeas ago.(twice over a few years).  Regardless of my situation each time, Sprint required a NEW two year contract on the new account for the transferred line.

That absolutely should not have happened.  I've done numerous TOL for customers over the years and it's not required.

I was on a Sprint account through my church a few years ago (long story...left church, had to assume liability of lines to keep numbers). It was pretty painless, and no new contracts were required. I did it all over the phone. Sprint took care of contacting the existing account owner, and then called me back. They really made it smooth, and this was a few years ago, when all Sprint CS was awful.

Are there higher credit requirements, when assuming a 2 year contract! Or assuming a line all together??

 

I am brand new to credit and have been working on building my credit up from nothing! I was able to get sprint with a 3 line limit and a $150 spending limit on each line! That was well over a year ago!

 

Sprint has been the only company besides t-mobile that even gave me, a look or any service! Verizon sucks on this!

 

I only used 1 line, I bought my phone outright at that time then went and upgraded to a new phone through easy pay, my phone is fully paid off now though!

It will just eat up one of your available lines on your account.

But I don't have to have better credit, for a 2 year??

I don't know the answer, but I don't see why that would matter. As far as credit goes, I know it effects if you need to have a deposit or spending limit, the number of lines you can have and if you need a down payment on easy pay but I doubt it has anything to do with contract vs non contract. Especially since the new plans don't come with a subsidy.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.
