...If the Directalk phone is a Powersource, you can't alter the number. Whatever number was associated with it when it is shut off stays forever.
If you obtain the MSL from Sprint, you can reprogram the PTN by using the ##RTN# menu and keying in a different number. It is a bit more of a work around, but well worth the effort.
