    Question???

    I am getting my wife a used Pearl to replace her worn out one. Do I have to call the carrier to switch or do I just use the switch device on DM? Thanks in advance.

    Since you'll probably need network connectivity, you will have to contact your service provider as well.

    The DM switch device will transfer her data, but you will still need to call the carrier with the new PIN and IMEI or ESN numbers so they can activate it I believe.

    Hey Randy, what carrier you got? Normally you'd have to call your service provider so they can get the device number, put it into system n do an over the air activation... Should take but a min or two..

    Ok heard from the seller and she was like I don't know if it is released or not. She is willing to do whatever she needs to. So I assume she just calls alltel and says hey I sold my phone and need the pin to be released?
