I mean, if I, or someone else was able to do this, can it be done??? I know the Photon Q has an unlockable bootloader and you can customize and flash the kernels and lotsa other stuff...just want to know if this gives it an advantage over other phones as far as being able to flash to other CDMA carriers, or if the advanced features/capabilities have nothing to do with it. Does anyone know if it has been done with the Photon Q and worked out and functions held up?

Thank you so much.
One has nothing to do with the other. Some people have attempted flashing a sprint phone over to another provider, but it wasn't a simple endeavor. So, easy answer is no. And LTE would not work, should you be successful flashing over.
Love the G-Note series!
