Default can i swap ESN's

I had a plan with sprint for 6 years, they were great to me but the past few months my bill sky rocketed and i am stuck with a 450 bill. i had the HTC evo and the HTC evo shift on my plan but it got shut off. so my gf went and got a plan in her name and got us 2 samsung nexus S's.... they suck compared to htc. i tried calling sprint and reading a few forums and i found out that the ESN is locked due to that bill i owe. i dont understand it though bc the F'n phone is mine i paid for it the day i got it why cant i use it however i want. so thats my question. is there a way i can swap ESN numbers between MY HTC evo shift and MY Samsung Nexus S

Esn is tied to the phone. No possibility of swapping the numbers. You did not pay the full price for the Shift when you bought it, you paid a subsidized price. Full price would have been close to $600. The only way you will be able to use the shift and evo again is to pay the bill.

Maybe a dumb question, but why did you buy new phones instead of just paying your bill? I am not sure what a nexus costs, but I would think you could have paid off a good chunk of your outstanding balance instead....
