If the 8703e is a Verizon phone, you can't use it on Sprint, even though it is compatible (CDMA). Sprint has a policy of not allowing non-Sprint branded phones on their network. Same with Verizon - it has to be a Verizon branded phone.
If you go GSM and unlock the device, you can use it on either T-Mo or Cingular as they have no such policy (yet).
The 8703 and the 8700 is basically the same phone, hardly any differences. Individual carriers do things to them however. I think Verizon has decoupled the GPS, but I am not 100% sure.
