1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Can you buy a used S3 for Verizon, Flash something, then use it on Sprint?

    eHow says a Verizon phone can be made to be a Sprint phone by means of a Sprint store flashing something. Does anyone know if this (or anything else) works?

    the Verizon version has a locked bootloader out of the box and would require rooting and flashing the unsecure aboot.img to even attempt such a process...

    You'll never be able to use 4g as the Verizon version uses a uic? Card and sprints doesn't. You'd be able to flash it to metropcs and actually use 4g on their network. That or offer to trade for a sprint version.
