Call customer care from a landline at 1-888-211-4727 and they will switch it for you. If you don't want to do that you can (if you haven't allready) go online to and set up an online account and do the swap there.

How can I change network with my Sprint galaxy s4 to an at&t network without going to a store or specialist

Sprint is CDMA-based; ATT is GSM-based.
The 2 systems are not compatible.
Even their 4G (LTE) frequencies are different.
So, unless your phone has both CDMA and GSM, plus multiple LTE frequencies, you can't switch between Sprint <-> ATT with a single phone.

I need to activate my Motorola sliver

The Motorola SLVR is a handset that focuses on media offerings, being one of the few non-Apple phones that features iTunes support. Although the Motorola SLVR has been available on GSM networks in the past, it is only sold through CDMA networks, such as Sprint PCS, US Cellular and Cricket Wireless. Unlike GSM phones, CDMA phones don't require unlock codes to take them to other networks. Instead, unlocking a CDMA phone involves removing the old software and installing software for its new network. The removal of the old software and installation of the new software is called flashing.
    • 1 Browse your new mobile company's store finder for a store in your area that performs handset flashing services.
    • 2 Take your Motorola SLVR into the store you located in Step 1. Explain that you currently use another mobile company but would like to switch to their mobile company. Allow the representative to install the new software onto the Motorola SLVR and then activate the phone to their network.
    • 3 Pay the fees the new mobile company charges for activating and flashing services. Pricing can vary depending on the mobile company.
    • 4 Contact your old mobile company to cancel your service contract. Be prepared to pay any fees associated with early cancellation or past-due accounts.

When someone call my phone doesnt ring

Try and make a call out; if that works, then contact Sprint directly, as there must be some sort of issue on their end about not having your number configured correctly.
If you can't call out or get calls, check to make sure you have signal (duh). Next, turn off your phone and make sure that your SIM card is inserted correctly by removing the cover to the battery compartment of your phone and looking for a card that looks like this: benharris5.jpg If you can't find one of these in the phone, check your original packaging for such a card; it must be inserted correctly in order for the phone to do anything. (This card essentially tells the phone what phone number it needs to listen to and on what network; without it, it has no idea what to do.) If you can't find a card, contact Sprint and they will send you a new one for free/cheap.
If both of those fail, either (a) you have a defective phone, or (b) Sprint hasn't activated your phone. In either case, you'll need to contact someone from Sprint about the problem. I suggest going to your local Sprint store and asking them for help; usually you can get things done a lot faster in person. If you can't do that, try contacting Sprint directly.
Contact info for Sprint: 888-211-4727
Good luck!

I forgot my security code for my samsung instinct

If you are completely locked out of the device not even sprint technical support can unlock it they will just refer you to the store, if you just forgot it but can still get in the device they will be able to unlock (by having you enter a ##3282 code and having you use current code to retrieve it)... so if your completely locked out please go into a sprint repair center, if not call sprint tech and they will be able to retreive your security code.
