2. Then your friend is required to activate new line of wireless phone service at a Sprint-branded store or a participating National Retailer on a qualifying postpaid rate plan with a wireless phone purchased via Sprint's Installment Billing or Leasing programs.
3. After activation, your friend needs to log back into the referral system and provide their mobile phone number within 60 days from the time they claimed their referral offer.

Will you give out my friend's contact information?
Can I refer someone who wants to bring their own phone to Sprint?
Sure! The person you refer can either buy a phone from Sprint or may bring their own phone if it can work on the Sprint network, either way you both get a Prepaid Card.
