    Interesting and thank you guys. Have tried two S6's both from the same guy locally, both Sprint models (g920p), both only on Sprint (not MVNO) and both DSU unlocked. Phone #1 is 128gb, but has some screen burn-in, #2 is 32gb but has a bad charge port so it has to use wireless charging. Both work fine on T-Mobile so they ARE unlocked. Both have the Sprint SIM cards. Both come up fine with Ting. Phone #1 says not eligible on the Sprint site, but #2 says congratulations you can save money. Looks like I could just add #1 but not #2, but in all reality, I'm not sure I need a second "free" line so probably just replace the flaky iPhone with either one of them.

    I think I'm good to go.

    Thanks again guys!

    I covered various error situations that are quite likely to arise and the pros and cons of doing it different ways. They are very real.

    Not everybody has a device they want to swap out and it is not necessary to always do it that way. In general, it is a more restrictive approach than adding another line (which I prefer in general anyway) because it requires having a line already active to port out. Typically many people reading have similar issues and not all are in the exact circumstances of the poster.
    Not trying to denigrade at all. I saw him asking about a simple swap. Using the other tool to check for new lines wasnt really needed. Alls good.

    Thank you all again, I decided to just swap devices for now. I was not able to do it online from my account, but CS got it done easily.

    Thanks again.

    I have a iphone 6 plus already in sprint free one year. If I port out the line and port back under my wife's ssn, could I use the same phone? Do I have to wait 45 days to release imei thing?

    You can port it out one day and back in the next on the other account on the different ssn. People have done that.

    The 45 days is the time period required for reopening a new free account under the same ssn as a previously closed account. It has no reference to devices.

    It does not apply to your proposal, which will work fine with no delay required.

    So for this free BYOD Unlimited Plan, does Sprint’s International 2G Roaming get included as well? Or is that like Hulu were it is only included on other rate plans? I am planning to do some outside US traveling and will still have a FreedomPop Global SIM with me, but I’m cool with using 2G + WiFi on this trip so I don’t have to SIM swap. If it matters, my Sprint services has an option to Block International Roaming, but then it also has to option to add Hulu, so who knows for sure.

    2G Roaming Yes.
    4G roaming no

    Are international services included?
    Yes, our 1 Year Free Unlimited plan includes Sprint Global Roaming, which includes data up to 2G speeds and text messaging in any of our 165+ Global Roaming countries at no charge, plus calling for just $0.20 a minute.

    It does not include calling from the U.S. to international locations, but you can easily add international calling to your plan.
    Also they note:
    May not be combinable with other offers, including but not limited to .... Premium International Experience,
    Because they use a common web interface, it superficially appears you can select Premium International Experience (which adds free international calling to Canada and 4G) but that will not take effect on this plan.

    Thanks! That will work great. Last year before Sprint I put in my VZW SIM in an old phone and forwarded calls and texts to the one I took with me. Now I won’t have to do that. If I end up wanting “high speed”, I’ll pop in my FreedomPop SIM.

    I don't know about other countries, but I was in Vietnam recently and was able to use International Data Roaming to make a Hangout/Google Voice call when I first landed at Tan Son Nhut airport. The airport also has free WiFi but I lost the WiFi connection and thought I was out of range (what happened was I was automatically disconnected from the free WiFi after an hour and did not realize I have to login again). I am on the free 1 year BYOD plan.
