Won't work. Sprint does have a good variety of phones, just different ones. Regardless, the ESN of a Verizon phone is not loaded into the billing and activations systems for Sprint to use.

But VZW likes to make a profit and apparently Sprint hasn't figured that one out yet. Won't happen.

Most customer service issues originate from customer stupidity... like parents getting 300sms plans for there teenaged daughters then crying about the overage.

the gods honest truth, granteed newere u go u can have bad cust service, but face it, most ppl who call in are stupid, if everyone new how to run there phone, there would be no need for cust service. and sprint has the best pda's available for your general knowlege. as far as flashy phones stick with verison, phones do look nice.

Not the only problem... as said, Verizon ESNs are not loaded into Sprint's activation and billing systems. Customer facing reps do not have access to the systems to do so. If not in the system, when you try to activate it, you'll just get the error indicating the ESN was not found...

You know, I often wonder the same thing myself. I have Sprint and the phones that they offer us are far less superior than what the other carriers offer their customers. I've had my eye on the Venus, Voyager, Shine and now the Glimmer. I hope we can get a clear answer for your question. I have my fingers crossed!
