What is the procedure/requirement(s) to change the account holder.....i.e. I wanna get my account switched from my dad's name, address, and credit to mine. Does this renew the contract or do other crap like that?

i don't think it renews the contract it might though it is pretty simple you have to go to a sprint store and get a change of responsibility form i think they run a credit check but not sure you dad will have to be there and so will u both sign then u should be set or at least i think

Yep. I'm pretty sure it's called a Transfer of Liability. It doesn't take long to do if they do it right. Just be sure that both of you have proper ID with you.

Easiest way ... go into a Sprint store with your father ... they will run your credit ... if you have to pay a deposit they will ask for it at that time ... then you and your father will out a form ... the rep will copy both of your IDs ... then do the switch in the computer ... no contract renewal or plan change is required ...

It is a transfer of liability and must be done at a Sprint store, since signatures will be required to transfer ownership. Generally you shouldn't need a deposit, unless you have a serious credit related issue.

I would say 1/3 of activations require a $125 deposit ... with 2/3 of total activatoins having a $125 ASL
