    Can I run an unlocked VZW phone on Sprint or am I just dreaming. I like the moto droid line and was wanting something like that but need to go with Sprint due to work discounts.

    Just so I can actually understand, do they run different CDMA bands? I couldn't really find info on this :(

    No they run the same but Sprint will not activate a non-Sprint phone.

    He's right. If the ESN is NOT in Sprint's database, they will not activate it.
