    As the subject implies I was wondering if I could buy a phone from Sprint and activate it with Boost Mobile as they use the same network?

    I've heard a ton of mixed opinions and need to know if anyone has a definitive answer for me! Thanks a mil!

    legally doing this? Not likely.

    Flashing a esn from a boost phone to this, maybe possible, I am not sure though.

    Officially you have to buy a Boost Mobile phone.

    I've heard of people getting Android Sprint phones to work with Boost, so it might be possible with an iPhone.

    So, does this also apply to a factory unlocked phone as well?
