    If I buy a phone off ebay, do I still have to renew my contract?

    Hi Everyone

    My contract is going to expire next march, but I am eligible for an upgrade. If I buy a sprint phone off of ebay, do I have to renew my contract in order for me to get it activated if I bought the phone off of ebay? How about when I am off contract...do I then have to renew my contract if I purchase the phone from ebay?

    Thanks so much
    Andy

    Just switching to a different phone doesn't restart a contract. Buying the phone with Sprint's upgrade pricing and/or rebates (from Sprint, BestBuy, Amazon, etc.) will start a new contract. - sheureka
    Do good. Be kind. Have fun.

    no you do not. once you get the phone go to sprint.com/activate and follow the directions. THe only thing that can through a kink in it is if you have to change your plan based on the device. There are some phones that require an Everything plan, like the Instinct, Pre, and pretty much all Android phones. If you plan is not compatible you will have to change your plan. Not sure if that will renew though. From what I understand Sprint will let you change your plan with no consequences in some instances.
