    I just recently purchased a iPhone 5 (Sprint) that was already previously JailBroken (6.1.2). I noticed that the "My Number" does not match mine (it might be the previous owners number). The ESN was clear when I called Sprint to activate it under my phone number.

    What is odd is that my LTE data works great but I can't make and receive calls. I receive a busy signal and only can call when I try to call Sprint customer support.

    Since I want to keep the 6.1.2 (jailbreak) I attempted to iLEX RAT to restore the phone, which was successful other than the "My Number" did not change to my actual number.

    I really appreciate if you guys have any guidance or suggestions to a fix. :)

    Ask sprint to remove the phone an then activate it again.

    Does sprint have a *228 option like verizon? If it does try that.

    Yes, I forgot to use (##update#) or (##873283#) I even had that saved in my contact list and use it when I sometimes am having 3G/LTE slow bandwidth.

    Thanks for your help :)
