    I don't think it will work, since AT&T is a GSM network, and Sprint is a CDMA network

    I don't know anyone selling one, nope. There's a guy floating around that wants to trade one for a Moment...

    Words of advice:
    1.) read the stickies first
    2.) search for your question before posting
    3.) If you can't find your answer, then post a thread.

    There was a bit of a falling out on here in the past couple days, with so many threads popping up on the same topics, and it got to the point where we were all getting annoyed beyond belief. Those 3 tips will keep it clean and everything running nice and smooth on here :)

    Good luck finding a Hero, you'll love the thing!

    Being that AT&T is a GSM network, wouldn't the Euro Hero work just fine on AT&T (With a few modifications?)

    I read the OP to say he was being offered an AT&T Hero and he wanted to use it on Sprint. But your point is understood.

    Yes, no mods needed. I was going to do this but went with sprint hero instead.

    So, to make a long thread short:

    No, it will not work on the Sprint network.

    Correct. The Hero that the OP is looking at (GSM Hero, with the chin) will NOT work with Sprint.

    It was also my understanding that U.S. GSM & European GSM are not compatible as of a year or so ago. I remember the articles about the "world phones" being offered here that would no longer work overseas due to an upgrade or change to the GSM system there.

    Certain bands are needed for it to work. GSM hero will work on ATT (except 3g IIRC).
