Default Switching Phone numbers at Sprint ???

Im jumping to the M8 this weekend and turning over the m7 to the wife. Considering ive never done this before( always retired the phone) When i take it in to change it over to her number, will i need to RUU or can I just leave the Rom Im running presently on the phone.?

Typically stock ROMs, usually work. But if your M7 is S-Off then i like to run the latest RUU and OTA update it, that way you won't get any flack. Sometimes the sales person that helps u will be thrown back if he or she sees anything unusual.
