    No, Verizon phones and Sprint phones can't be used on the opposite network.
    And that's not even accounting for the bad ESN.

    I THINK, don't quote me because I have no experience with it, that a phone with a bad ESN for Verizon can be flashed over to Metro PCS.

    They were able to flash the Droid 1 to CricKet, maybe you can do it with them, too.

    You can use Sprint and Verizon phones on Cricket and Metro even if they have a bad ESN. One of the benefits of these inexpensive carriers is being able to buy a bad esn phone for a huge discount. Usually over $100 less then if they had a good esn.

    Is Metro PCS' service better than the two CDMA service(Sprint/Verizon) giants? Does M. PCS have a good download/upload service? I'm asking because I've been using my very old HTC touch for web browsing and takes 10 mins. to load a page:(

    Edit: I live in South Florida and went to their website and it says I will have "good" reception on talk, text, and web. Anybody have any experience with their service?

    Edit 2: Just went to the Metro pcs thread and there are no threads:eek:

    Check Howardforums? Metro and cricket would be ok if you never go anywhere.
