The area code can be changed separately on your Sprint phone.

  2. Go to My Preferences.
  3. Open the Things I can manage online drop-down menu and choose Change Phone Number.
  4. Select the option that says I need a different area code for this phone.
  5. Enter the desired zip code to see a list of available area codes.

The new area code should update on your phone over the network. If you have any issues, contact Sprint for support.

Updating your phone number can have unexpected consequences. If your new number doesn’t work when it's called or calling out, you may need additional support.
