But can't you simply do an ESN change online via the website?? The handset is 100% capable if it has the proper data in it to utilize Sprints network.
The PIN... Didn't know that any of those were in Sprint's database, thought PIN in only involved when speaking to RIM's network, and I still don't know why Sprint would care what the PIN number is.
Historically this was easy, I had done it on the older Palm's and even activated in store but that was before data via the mobile network was around. Flashed the Palm with the sprint logo splash screen and the rep in store said "that ESN isn't listed" and all I did was show him the Sprint logo as it powered up and he entered the ESN on the account - all was well.
