    Okay, so I read Buying phone off ebay to replace prepaid phone questions? but I'm a little confused.

    I have a LG AX145 on Alltel's prepaid Pay-Per-Day and I'm thinking about getting a LG Scoop.

    What I'm wanting to do is keep the LG Scoop with my current number and give my dad the LG AX145 to use has his emergency phone.

    I have a couple of questions:

    1. Is there ANY way of buying the LG Scoop directly from Alltel without paying the activation fee all over again?
    2. If I were to buy the Scoop from eBay/wherever how do I switch my number over to it? I've heard that you just replace the battery to the phone you want to use.
    3. If the above is true, can I put the LG Scoop's battery into the LG AX145 and have both phones work?

    Sorry if this is a little confusing. xD

    1. Buy the Scoop at full retail price.
    2. Call Prepaid CS (not *611 or 1800Alltel1 and NOT from the Scoop or the existing phone on the line) and ask to switch phones on your existing number.
    3. The scoop will now work on your existing number

    Now if you want to use your old phone with your father, you need to either activate a new prepaid number for it, or a contract account

    The Scoop and crappy 145 (sorry I hate it) probably don't interchange batteries.
