Default Can I Flash my current phone to ST?

I'm considering the switch to ST.

Currently I am with MetroPCS. Coverage in my area is fine except for at my home...there is a bubble of bad service which they know about and I live on the edge of it leaving me with poor reception at home and my phone wasting battery constantly looking for service.

If I make the move to ST I would likely buy 2 Galaxy Nexus from Google for my wife and I but I would like to use my current phone (Optimus M) for my daughter. Is it possible to flash this to their CDMA regular ST service? And will it be full featured (sms, mms, 3G)

I realize the Nexus phones are GSM and the Optimus is CDMA.

My next question would be if this is possible will I be able to combine bills into one or are the BYOP and regular ST two totally separate entities?

Anybody?

I thought since they are both CDMA that this would be possible. (I'm talking about regular ST, not the BYOP program which requires GSM device)

I'm sure it's possible by cloning the ESN and authentication keys from a ST phone. Besides being against their ToS and probably illegal, it would also be a pain since I haven't seen any tutorials on it. You would have to figure it out on your own.

Go GSM, it's easier.
