    Hi all,

    I'm thinking of buy the Sprint Nexus S 4G and having someone flash it to Cricket Wireless. I went on eBay to purchase one but I found two different model numbers of what seems to be the exact same phone:

    Samsung Google Nexus S SPH-D720:
    Samsung Google Nexus S SPH-D720 - 16GB - Black Sprint Smartphone 635753490558 | eBay

    Samsung Google Nexus S i9020:
    eBay: Samsung Google Nexus S i9020 - 16GB - Black Sprint Smartphone

    Does anyone know the difference between the two model numbers if any?

    Thanks,
    Lenny

    I would wait for Galaxy Nexus if you can afford it. Otherwise, I rather buy HTC or even Moto Photon.

    The D720 is the Sprint CDMA version and the i9020 is international GSM version.
    Not sure which would be the best to flash to Cricket though.

    Thanks for all the help and sorry for the late reply, I subscribed to this thread but Gmail stupidly detected it as spam because: "Other people have marked similar messages as Spam."
