Default Flash VZW 8703e to Sprint Firmware?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a VZW 8703e that I would like to put on the Sprint network. I've taken care of the ESN problem, but what I'm wondering is if I will still need to flash the firmware or OS to the Sprint software, and if so, if this is possible. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the help!

You had better talk to Sprint first. Typically they will not put a non-Sprint phone on their network - flashed or not. Its the PIN and ESN that tells the difference. Verizon is the same way.

Which OS is on the device makes no difference. OS's are interchangeable between like devices of different carriers. The ESN issue your only issue.
