I think it's possible to use the Pre on Boost Mobile CDMA...

trying to use it for walmart prepaid. They us Verizon network. Its same frequency so it should work. I know you can unlock other phones and use between networks.

no you cannot unlock cdma phones it is possible to use them on other networks but that requires that the esn be added which verizon is not going to do so im doubtful that theyd let their prepaid network do it either youre better off with metro pcs who will add the esn for a price

You could always keep the Pre and use it as a WiFi device. It still works great!
