Switching Phones with rooted EVO

I am thinking about switching my phone number over to my wife's Epic since she wants an Evo Shift. I currently have my Evo rooted and running the Cyanogen Rom.

My question is: Do I need to convert my Evo back to stock before Sprint can switch an Epic to my line? All the phones are paid for so there won't be any contract extensions to worry about if that matters. I also have all my contacts/calendar events backed up so I won't need them to transfer it over to the new phone.

I wouldn't think so. They should be able to do that over the phone. It might be easier to do the switch if you are running a rooted stock ROM since you may need to go into the ##3646# settings.

But, I would just make Nandroid of your current setup and then wipe your caches and flash a rooted stock ROM like Sprint Lovers.
