    Okay, so here's the story... I have am old S2 Epic 4G on Virgin Mobile at the moment, but a problem as arisen with the power button, so long story short I have it fixed for now after opening it up for the third time. But just to be safe, I just bought a new Samsung Galaxy S4 online, and just received it today. So the original plan was to switch to Ting, but the thing is, Ting as of right now, only supports the regular non triband version of the S4. Turns out that in the item description online, the seller listed it as a regular S4 (SPH-L720). SO as of right now it's a paperweight.. The ESN on the phone is clean and has never been used as it's new, and I was wondering if I can do anything with it as of right now without having to go through the hassle of returning it. However I've never liked the idea of a 2 year contract and a lot of these major carriers are kinda pricey on the monthly charges. Does Sprint offer anything that I can use this phone for that isn't a contract and is around $40/ month? Or even anything that might be worth a shot from a different carrier that would be compatible with this phone (I think Sprint is CDMA if I remember correctly, but don't know if it would also work on another carrier). As I don't have much money, being a college student with an apartment, working a part time job at minimum wage, haha.

    Any input or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Sprint has a pay as you go option. You can take a look at their prepaid webpage here: Find Prepaid Phones and Prepaid Phone Plans from Sprint.

    Or you can find out just how good the people at your local Sprint store are by going in and asking them if the phone can be used on one of their prepaid plans. (I like knowing that my carrier's local store has people a step above cashier in cellphone smarts.)
