my friend just gave me the sprint 8703e blackberry he canceled service to it. now i was wondering to get service to it using sprint can i just go down to the sprint store and ask them to put service on it or will they not do that because it already has a number? do i need to unlock it and if so how do i do that? any help is greatly appreciated
Assuming this is a Sprint branded 8703e (not Verizon Wireless), take the 8703e to a Sprint Store, and sign up for service of your own.
You'll need a BlackBerry Data Plan, and some type of voice plan if you want to use it for both voice and data.
You'll get a new phone number when you open your own account, or you can port an existing number from another carrier if you already have service with another provider.
