Call 888-211-4727 and ask help on this issue. I'm sure Sprint would be able to resolve your issue. All you have to do is explain the situation clearly. If ever Sprint can't do anything about your phone, then ask for the best option to your situation. An upgrade or adding a line can merit a free phone if that's what you want as an alternative to your intercept.

I got a sprint LG viper that has a bad esn how do I change it so I can activate it


Ask the seller for the ESN number, call the carrier of the phone and ask them can they run a check on the esn of that phone and they will tell you why the ESN is bad. upon fixing that issue (usually an unpaid bill) you should be good to go.

I have just brought it and dont know how to set it up. have installed battery and sim card, but after that the instructons are vague for some one who hasnt used one before


I wonder how you can install SIM card on a Sprint phone. It uses CDMA technology and doesn't support SIM. If you are a sprint customer, call the customer service with the phone's ESN (Electronic Serial Number) in decimal which you can find at the back of the phone. The phone can only be activated if you are a sprint customer and the ESN is clean.

I bought an evo from a flea market in my hometown of Columbia sc. I thought I was getting a great deal until I found out I couldn't have it activated because of a bad esn. I have since seen online where...


You wouldn't be able to use Boost, but maybe Virgin Mobile. Boost uses iDen, formally Nextel technology. Virgin Mobile uses CDMA or Sprint's. Here's how to do it: Go here: https://www1.virginmobileusa.com/activate/activate.do?page=0
Follow the instructions and select the Samsung Intercept as the phone model. Enter the ESN and you should be good.

Can boost mobile sim work in a pro 700


Hi,

PRO 700 DOES NOT USE SIM CARDS! instead like the other sprint phones it uses the ESN/MEID number on the back. Just call sprint and tell them you want to do an ESN SWAP or SWITCH TO A NEW PHONE and they will ask you for the number under the battery. They will also walk you through activating everything including Direct Connect. It is as fast as Nextel traditional Direct Connect but it has a MUCH LARGER COVERAGE AREA FOR VOICE AND DIRECT CONNECT. Soon these phones will take control and the whole IDEN network Nextel uses will be converted to CDMA (sprints High Speed Network).

I found a samsung instinct and I do have sprint but I guess the phone was reported lost. Is there a way to activate the phone?


there is not. once a phone is reported lost or stolen, that gives it a "dirty" ESN. (Electronic Serial Number) These are numbers created by the FCC to uniquely identify mobile devices. The only thing you can do is send it back to the carrier. Once a phone is reported lost/stolen they are added to a strikeout database. That phone is dead to the network/s.

ESN that sprint needs is the ESN DEC, it is an 18 digit number above a bar code under your battery directly on your phone. This is not to be confused with the HEX, which starts with an "A"

Want to use two cell phones with same phone number


this is not possible, sprint only allows you to have ONE active ESN for each phone number on your account.
