Your User Name

When you buy your phone and sign up for service, you’re automatically assigned a user name, which is typically based on your name and a number, followed by “” (For example, the third John Smith to sign up for Sprint data services might have as his user name.)

When you use data services, your user name is submitted to identify you to the network. Your user name is automatically programmed into your phone. You don’t have to enter it.
