I am hoping someone else can shine some light on this matter for me.

I have 4 lines on my Sprint account. If line 1 has an eligible upgrade, but line 3 is the one that wants a new phone, can I upgrade line 1, and then just do a phone shuffle online to put the new phone onto line 3 and the old phone onto line 1?

Thanks in advance...

I don't think would be a problem but they may try to get you twice for activation. Best bet would be to talk to a sprint rep and see if they'll do it. If they say no, hang up and try again or try a store.

yeah you can i just did but you have to activate the phone on the line you upgraded for like 15 minutes then go to sprint.com and switch the phones around

Once you upgrade your line, if it's a smart phone you're going to get dinged for 10 dollars a month, forever. (Unless you already had an Evo or such, which already charged the fee).
Once you move the phone to your other line, that line now will cost you $10 extra a month too. (provided you're moving a smart phone to that line.)
The only way to avoid these fees is to keep status quo. The minute you make any changes to a line with a smart phone, you're going to pay more.

Sprint is LAME! My upgrade is March 1st, they wont let me do it early unless I use Telesales or in a corporate store. I want Evo so I want to use best Buy, avoid the rebate, they give rebate credit up front. Nope says sprint, it takes 2 days to change your upgrade date, by then it will be march 1st! lol

But to answer your question you can swap phones around online, if there is a rebate involved you need to leave the phone on the line for 30 days, 31 or 32 to be safe :)

I recently did this. My dad had an upgrade and I used his to get my new optimus s. If you are worried about activation fee's you can call and they will probably wave them for you if you are a long time customer (or just lay the guilt treatment on them and say you are struggling to pay your bill).
