Sprint BB to 4S from Ebay
So a good friend of mine asked how she can get a iphone. She has Sprint and her contract doesnt renew till March of 2013. She currently has a BlackBerry Storm and I saw on ebay you can buy a Sprint 4S. What does it take to switch her phone to that one? Will I need to trim a chip to fit the microsim slot? Will it activate automatically when I hook it up to itunes? As much help you can give would make my life so much easier! Plus it gives me another person to Imessage with haha

You can just call Sprint or do the chat on Sprint.com to set it up and activate it. Once you give them the MEID number which can be found in the About section of the phone or on the original box she will be set. It's pretty simple. You just identify the phone by the MEID to the Sprint rep and they will give you steps to activating it. She will probably not have to do anything to program it after that.

Just be sure to make sure she confirms that the ESN is CLEAN and ready to activate before going through with any transaction for a phone on eBay. I had an issue once that got sorted out but it was still a pain to go through the claim process with my seller. Luckily they were pretty understanding and gave me my refund as soon as I got it back to them.
