Question can i purchase a phone from somewhere other than Sprint?

I'm wondering if I buy a phone from somewhere other than sprint but it is a phone for sprint what I'll have to do to get it hooked up? I know a place in PA where I'm from that I can get just about any sprint phone for about half the price but I need to know how to go about having it switched from the phone I have now to the one I buy?

As long as the phone is not reported lost/stolen or currently attached to an account, you should be a ble to go into a Sprint Store or call customer service to have the ESN swapped from your old phone to the new one.

Pertaining to this topic: Does anyone know where the best place online to get a new sprint phone would be? I'm looking into a LG PM325 but no luck otherwise. I'm always looking for deals!

For the 325, the best place to get it is Sams club. 79.99 at Sprint after rebate, 59.99 after rebate there. Also, for 119.99 (Combined total) you get both the phone and the headset.

I'm on the edge of a corporate and affiliate market border so I drive about half an hour to Indiana and buy my phones from the affiliate store there. Tends to be 50-75 dollars cheaper.
