On my previous phone with Sprint, I modded it to use a customized Verizon PRL and activated it on Page Plus (a Verizon MVNO), but it would still only work with 1x.
Your best bet is probably to ask in a forum dedicated to the carrier you want to switch to.
Back a few years ago, I had a Sprint Motorola Razr, moved to Verizon and brought it with me. That phone (which I had a professional switch over to Verizon's brand of CDMA) lasted me for probably five years. I finally moved from that to the Droid 1, but it worked up to the day of the switch to Android.
I realize that I'm talking older, non-3G service here, but I was trying to show that there is usually a way to pull off these kind of moves, as long as (in the case of the Droid), you're willing to accept a lesser kind of OTA service, because I don't think that Sprint and Verizon use the same frequencies for their 3G and 4G services.
