    I don't believe so. Something about Sprint not recognizing VZW's ESN's

    If you can get a Sprint rep to accept the Verizon ESN, then it will work. But you also have to flash to a Sprint radio/firmware, and have all the Sprint settings in place.

    Look at the custom ROM thread.

    Sprint will NOT activate any phone where the ESN isn't in their database.

    They used to, but don't anymore....

    I believe you still can if you get the right rep. It's just very very difficult to.

    ...none of their CS reps have the ability to add an ESN to their system.

    I guess in theory you could do an ESN swap from a broken Sprint phone....
