    If your account is suspended your are still legally responsible to pay the balance due. BUT You can do whatever you want with your phone.  If they un suspend you and you have no phone , then your just without a phone and your paying for service your not getting. Hope that helps.

    Just because his account is suspended doesn't mean anything.  All you have to do is go to a Sprint store let them know he's giving you his phone, or you can call customer care and tell them you need to do an ESN Switch, and they will transfer that phone to your account and it won't be on his bill anymore, but he will be responsible for his balance, plus termination fees 200 per line, or less than that depending on how far in contract you are.  Collection Charges, court costs, attorney fees can also be imposed.

    No you can't. The phones ESN would be flagged and would not be able to be activated on any Sprint account until the balance due is paid.

    An account with Sprint requires that an phone be on the account at all times until canceled.   If the account is cancel in good standing you can give away or sell the device.   If there is a balance owing on the account, account actions are frozen and the device cannot be removed from it.  It would not be released until any outstanding balance is paid in full.

    Levi is absolutley correct on this.   Stars 90 is incorrect in that if the account is suspended  the store nor customer service can swap any devices on or off the account.   So we cannot swap your phone on to their account or move their   phne to yours.  

    hope this helps
