CDMA carriers have their ESN's pooled...like their phone numbers. So If you tried to activate a Verizon Phone on Sprint...it would not work...because Verizon's ESN numbers are not available in Sprint's pool. The same is true the other way around.
Since both companies agreed to perma-lock the iPhone, they can legally do so. Not like its gonna hurt either company since they singed a "multi-year" exclusive contract.
Most average "multi-year" contracts between companies run between 5-10 years.
