    As a prospective buyer of an EVO and current ATT customer I was thinking of setting up a new account with Sprint (new #), and if I like the EVO port to Sprint. Would they port my existing number and cancel the new number they would give me when I set up the account?

    You should be good to go. I am doing something very similar and was talking to an EVP representative who said they would give me a "temporary" number to activate my phone with so I would have time to make sure that everything is okay with the phone/service. After I'm settled, they said they will then port over my numbers.

    I have to admit, I didn't ask how long you have to do this. 30 days sounds like a good number, but I would call and ask to verify.

    I think you shouldn't have much problem with this. Sprint's pretty good at handling user requests. For example, if I call a land-line, caller ID reports me as Zombie Godzilla. Unless, of course, they have a non-scrolling caller ID...then I'm just Zombie God.

    Damn I love Sprint service.

    Yes you can. Once Sprint ports over your number it cancels your service with ATT

    Link: Sprint Number Porting Credit Application

    I believe this only applies if the account is opened for the corporation (aka "corporate-liable"). I don't believe that it's for people with private lines using corporate discounts. Hope I'm wrong, but that's how I interpreted the details.

    LMAO how did you get them to do that? Mine shows up as some dude's name. I guess he was the last person to have this phone number. I wouldn't mind changing it, just didn't know it was an option!

    Yeah I spoke with Sprint and EVP and you have up to 30 days to port your number. So I pulled the trigger, gonna mess with the EVO for a bit and see what happens.

    Hmmm...I suddenly need to think really hard about what I want my caller ID to be. Do you think Zombie Jesus is out of line?

    Sprint will not let you choose a number unless you are porting your current number.

    I'm talking about what shows up on caller id when I call someone, not the number itself.
