    About to get a Tour, but a question about activation

    I've been browsing here for a while but this is my first time posting. I plan on getting a Sprint Tour this Thursday. Since my 2nd line is eligible for the rebate, I'm going to purchase the device for that line then swap it to the primary line. They have to activate the phone in the store (Best Buy) along with doing any changes.

    Now all this talk about the BB having to be activated with RIMs servers and service books... it's all greek to me. But my question is will I have a problem in having the phone activated on another line, then deactivating it and reactivating it on the line I want it to be on? Will this mess up the registration in any way?

    Ok sweet... thanks! Will I have to do anything on the Sprint Blackberry website, or is that only in regards to email? I'm completely new to BB so I'm not sure how this works.
