    PPC's CSRs had to take four runs at it before the port-in finally went through, but the BYOW agent's trick did the job.

    I found an old post stating that this particular carrier (Silver Star) is a roaming partner to Sprint. Does this mean that any phone Sprint supports, Silver Star also likely will support?
