By old, I don't mean "used on your account before", I mean several years old. I accidentally spilled soda on my fiance's phone so he's been using mine for work. I remember using the Samsung Rant several years ago, and thought about buying another one off eBay since they're relatively cheap and I have past experience with them. I would need to go to the store to add a new line to our plan anyway (we hadn't merged our phone services yet but this situation gives us an opportunity to do so).
My question is: if I buy a used (but clean and Sprint compatible) Samsung Rant online and bring it to a Sprint store, would they be able to add it to my current plan or would I have to make a new one? I'm not really sure if they let you use phones that are so outdated on current plans. For reference, my plan includes two lines, unlimited texting and calling, and limited data. Both of the other phones are iPhones. I'm just not sure about compatibility here. Sorry if this is a silly question.

I mananged to get a used but clean ESN Sprint iPhone 4s from a friend. I should have no trouble with this phone, right? That's what my fiance currently has.
As long as it's a Sprint phone and has been on the Sprint network in the past, you shouldn;t have a problem. If it hasn't been on the network in the past, you may have to jump through a few hoops to get it added to the network.
Yep, you should be good to go then. You can actually do it by going to the following website,
Should be able to complete the process in a few minutes. I use it evertime I switch phones.
