    If I were to purchase an unlocked Pre2 would I follow the directions to FrankenPre it to get it on Sprint? Or is there another way of doing since t is unlocked?

    Thanks,

    Tony

    you would follow the same directions but for the meta-doctor process you would use the Sprint unlocked script...WebOS 2 Upgrade - WebOS Internals

    good luck - my palm pre 2 is winging its way to me now! Can't wait to start the process!

    I ordered a Pre 2 as well. Not sure I can complete the surgery. Does anyone offer a service to switch out the boards?

    Folks, an "unlocked" Pre2 is GSM and will never work on Sprint as they are CDMA.
    Original Palm Pilot+modem > Kyocera QCP 6035 > Kyocera 7135 > Treo 650 > HTC TyTN (ugh) > Palm Centro > Nokia E75 > Nokia E72 + iPad2 > HP Veer + TouchPad + UK Pre3 + AT&T Pre3 > iPad2 + ATT Pre3 + Nokia N9 > Galaxy S3 > Pre3 > Nexus 4 > Blackberry Q10 + Galaxy Note 8.0

    "Mize" not true, what u change out is the comm board which has the CDMA radio from the original Pre. The process is really easy, just look on YouTube and search "sprint Pre plus" and u will see an 11:53? Video of a guy with grossly long fingernails. Same process as Pre to Pre 2. Just take your time

    Ah, my bad.
    Guess I should have googled frankenpre first.

    Hmmm...wonder if one could do something similar with a Pre3 and Veer to get an 850/1900/2100 Pre3 going...
