How to Get a Sprint MSL Number

If you decide to change the phone company you use but keep the phone from a previous company, you will need to have the MSL code to activate it with the new company. Sprint does not give out MSL codes because it is in their interest to keep you as a customer. You can retrieve the MSL code for the phone in a few simple clicks.
