correct, as a former sprint employee they will not act any phone that does not say sprint on it. Also their system will reject any esn that is not in the database as a sprint phone.
Sprint also has some small carriers( cant remember the names) that are specialty services and poor prepay (not virgin) and they say sprint, BUT the esns are locked out because they were sold for a seperate service.
my suggestion would be no to waste your time, you will not get anywhere, and most likely, even if they do take your phone and the esn gets into the system, finding a way to program it will be a pita.
