How to Replace a Lost Sprint Cell Phone

By Kay Ireland

It is always a pain when you lose something as important as a cell phone. Cell phones are lost constantly and never returned, whether due to dishonest people who find them or the phones simply being too lost to find. Replacing a lost Sprint cell phone is fairly easy, although it can take some time and a few phone calls on your part.

Step 1

Call Sprint Customer Service at 1-888-211-4727.

Step 2

Indicate that you've lost your cell phone and need to have service to your old phone stopped immediately.

Step 3

Inquire about phone insurance and whether your phone insurance policy covers the loss of a phone.

Step 4

If you are covered, ask about the amount that a credit will be issued to you for. You can then use the credit to purchase a new phone at any Sprint store or dealer.

Step 5

If you are not covered, ask about what you can do to purchase a new phone. Go to a Sprint retailer and check out the new phones that are available for purchase. You can even purchase a phone online or in retail stores: just make sure that the phones are compatible with your Sprint contract by asking an associate.

Bring your new phone to a Sprint dealer and have them configure it and put it on your old cell phone plan for uninterrupted service.
