I currently have a Samsung Galaxy SII, but I am contemplating purchasing a Sprint iPhone 4 from an acquaintance. What do I need to know before I purchase this phone? And will there be any charges for changing devices on my plan? Will I have to change my plan or pay any additional fees each month? Thank you in advance for any guidance/feedback you may be able to provide!
tinahamburger- Great questions. In a general, because both are smartphones, there should be little to no change in price required. There is no fee for a swap of a device. If you can PM me your phone number and PIN, I can give you an exact answer for you. Also what would you like to know about the two phones before purchase? -Kris
Great. When looking for iPhones on sites like eBay, I noticed a lot of people say "clean ESN."Is that something I need to make sure this phone has? Even though I am buying this phone from a friend of a friend, I worry that I might get cheated somehow...Are there any codes or information I need to make sure the seller (or phone) has before I can officially make the purchase and eventual swap?
i bought my phone from a friend of a friend of a friend too . I asked him to meet at the Sprint store, gave the phone to them and they'll verify it for you, they can even port the number right there for you
tinahamburger- Another great question. Usually the term "clean ESN" refers to the ESN not being tied to another account, or reported lost or stolen. In this since it is "clean" to activate. Net.Escape's suggestion is a great idea also. If you would like, I can also check the IMEI of the device, which can be found from within the phone's menu, and let you know the same info. There is no information you should need, except info that is within the phone itself, in order to do the swap. Let me know if you have any other questions. -Kris
