Good question but there is only one way to find out.

"Reusing or recycling these phones could save enough energy to power more than 24,000 homes for a year. With BYOSD, MVNO customers simply bring a deactivated Sprint device to their MVNO, who must determine the device’s eligibility for the BYOSD program. Upon meeting those specifications, the device is then activated by the MVNO. "

My guess is No. Probably better off using it on Virgin. Check with both.

One thing I forgot to mention when it comes to device eligibility I think that is more towards finding out if the phone is reported lost, stolen, or if it is tied to a delinquent account which in that case it wouldnt qualify for anything anyways. :3.

Good luck!
