    I think you need to frankenpixi it, which would be to swap the verizon pixi plus comboard out for a sprint pixi one. I'm not sure if this has been done or not, but it's definitely theoretically possible.

    EDIT: Just remembered that the MEID is on the mainboard so that would not be interchangeable without changing it.

Note since your reprogramming a motherboard and not the whole phone its not cloning... Cloning is when you have 2 or more working phones with the same MEID and thats bad lol DONT DO IT...
    I'm not sure how you would do it, or if it's possible. It's above my knowledge. I think you're gonna have to wait until someone else sees this, and can give a specific explanation on how to do it. I'm not sure if what you're explaining has been done before, there's probably something special you have to do.

(counted while tossing them away) lol most were the browser window on the bookmarks page, but in addition, there were 2 weathericon cards open, camera, notes and 2 emails.

    on a sprint franken pixi + n oc'd to 806

    the pixi is a little beast! lol
    You might want to send this guy a PM and ask how he did it, if he has pics, etc.

    As long as the ESN is unlocked, as advertised, Sprint should have no trouble activating it.

    I'm not sure that anyone's tried and/or succeeded in building a Sprint Pixi Plus based on the body of a Verizon Pixi Plus. For it to succeed, you'd have to transplant whatever item carries the Sprint ESN information. As you can tell from the differing conversion processes, the Sprint Pixi memory/wifi board which physically appears to be analogous to the the Sprint Pre comm board does not carry the ESN information.
    This is a crazy question, I'd like to know the answer.

    Just think, you could be the first ever to do this!

    You would have to transfer esn electronicly from my understanding because the main board has increased speed over the pixi right?

    The only part that has to be changed out is the motherboad. I didn't know that this had not been done. I went through the wifi swap links and since the new verizon phones are cheaper than the sprint, I bought one in excellent shape and a sprint that was beat up.
    I activated the sprint phone, swaped out the motherboards and followed the wifi swap instructions. It runs on sprint just fine and has wifi. The front is funny, the screen says sprint and the phone says verizon.

    I think the larger issue here is that you were sold a Verizon Pixi that someone claimed was unlocked. CDMA phones cannot be unlocked, so that was a line of BS.
    Touchscreens are a fad.
