Abstract: Let R be a prime ring with identity, center $ Z \ne GF(2)$, and a nonidentity idempotent. If R is not finite and if $ x \in R - Z$, then x has infinitely many distinct conjugates in R. If R has infinitely many Z-independent elements then $ x \in R - Z$ has infinitely many Z-independent conjugates.
