Can i change my verizon iphone 4 to sprint

Sep 2, It is my understanding from other posts that Verizon does not unlock their phones, so you would not be able to switch to Sprint.

I also seem to recall that they are on two different networks CDMA vs. GSM so that would pose a problem also. If you search this forum, you should find more information. The chance of being able to "flash" a Verizon phone to Sprint successfully is quite low; it's safe to say it's impossible. This is because Sprint will not activate a phone whose ESN does not match their database.

Sep 2, 1: However, each carrier can only activate phones that match their databases. Jan 20, 5: Both Sprint and Verizon do use the same network and could use each others phones with no problems at all they just choose not to. All the iPhones now are exactly the same for all the carriers. It is also true for other phone makers.

The carriers use this as a reason for you to not leave and go to another carrier because you will have to put out the money for a new phone. This is also the reason you can roam outside of the US or other countries. The only thing they have to do to get it to work is put your phones info into there system and it will work. I worked for a carrier Sprint there were times when phones were shipped out and not in our system. We would send a request to have it added and about 24 hours later it would be in and working.

I wish congress or whoever would pass a law or something to let us move our phones around as there is no reason it cannot be done. Also completely incorrect. The only exception is the Verizon iPhone 5. The iPhone can not be, and even if it could, Verizon and Sprint will not permit you bring your own phone.

Jan 20, 6: In that case, I misread your statement to mean that you could roam from and to any of the 4 carriers you listed. Since your statement that Verizon and Sprint use the same network is so outrageously wrong, my brain interpreted the following statement as equally incorrect.

Sprint and Verizon do not use the same network. They use the same type of network. There is a huge difference. If you actually worked for a cellular carrier in any capacity above that of a sales drone in a mall kiosk, I would expect you to know that and, equally, to know that the distinction is critical in any kind of technical discussion.

Again not trying to argue but I seem to have missed something in my training. I am wondering what the huge difference you are talking about is other than Verizon having WAY better coverage?


  1. Unlock the iPhone on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.

They are physically distinct networks. They have their own towers. They do not use the same network. I have WiFi at my house. You have WiFi at your house. Are we on "the same network"? Of course not.

    What does sharing the same radio network mean?

    Are we using the same frequency band? More than likely, yes. If Sprint and Verion were using "the same network" the coverage would be exactly the same for both of them. Ok clearly I should have been more clear in my post as to the same network being the same TYPE of network like your example with wifi.

    I think we are on the same page now as far as the networks go so I will end by saying this.
