    Is it possible to change my number over to another phone to test it out, then switch it back to my Esteem? Not just the number, i mean the meid and all that, if i were to do it myself?

    I have an old droid flashed to metro but i want to test the picture messaging and web before i sell it. Thanks. :)

    It was previously on metro's network about a year ago but hasn't been activated since then. I shouldn't have a problem switching back to my esteem then?

    No not at all.

    When I re-activated my first esteem that I fixed after bricking testing GS and CWR, I called *228 and those are actually the directions metro will give you /use when activating a phone or switching phones

    Oh but you will probably have to add the other phone to your account first. Which you can do on their site within your account
