Sprint phone --> CDMA/Verizon? - May 26, 2008, 10:04 AM

Ok, my sister handed me a Palm Treo that is completely off contract with Sprint. I want to get it on to the Verizon network. Is anyone out there capable of switching the software for me so it can operate on the Verizon network?

I will gladly buy beer.

(I have to stick with Verizon for reasons beyond my control).

Why don't just get a nicer phone from Verizon for free? Call their telesales department and negotiate a good deal or check out Amazon.com or Buy.com. Sometimes, those e-tailers offer way better deals than those available at the Verizon stores.

i actually had this same thing happen to me. My uncle gave me a treo (older model one like 2 years ago lol) but verizon's CDMA service is not compatable with any SIM card provider. My uncle's treo was from cingular and i was SOL. I actually met up with a member from this forum and traded the SIM card treo for the verizon version (her work upgraded her phone and she kept the old one for shits and giggles i guess lol).

Basically either sell/trade that phone and buy/recieve a verizon variant or get sprint service lol.

Sprint uses CDMA, and ever since verizon "opened" their network, you can now send your phone from any CDMA carrier with the same bands to them and they should be able to activate it, call em up.

I did some searching after we talked on that long ass ride back from 33. Talked to a couple of my friends who work for Sprint and Verizon and it looks as though you can't get the treo onto the Verizon network. SOmething to do with the way they conect their service vs. how the Treo is set up.

God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.
