    Sprint store gave me a used SIM card

    I did the byod promotion with sprint. I needed another SIM card to add a line to my plan. I went into a sprint store and was given a SIM card out of another phone. I'm not sure who the phone belonged to. I'm assuming the number on it is the ccid number. Can you think of any issues with me using the SIM card? I have to cal telesales to get the line activated.

    Do you happen to have a s4gru account? They might be able to answer that.

    There is no problem if it was never activated or if it was properly released from the previous phone. It does not store personal information.

    If it was not properly released from the previous phone it won't work when you call to get the phone activated.

    While a little distasteful, yeah, if it wasn't activated on another phone you're fine.
