Default Sprint 8830 on Alltel network?

Please Login to Remove!

have a co-worker that has a BB8830 on the Sprint network and they are ditching that phone to goto something else. Is it possible for me to use that Sprint branded 8830 on the Alltel network that I'm currently with and use it to replace my 8703e? Do I need to unlock it first? I understand SIM cards aren't in play here since both networks are CDMA? Thanks
