    Activating a Sprint Blackberry with Verizon?

    I have a spare Blackberry with Sprint, which my friend wants to activate with Verizon. I've done a little research on the topic and have gathered that the phone needs to be "flashed" in order for it to work on Verizon. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on getting this to work?

    I'd appreciate any kind of feedback.

    Thanks.

    If you need help trying to activate a phone on Verizon, it'd probably be better to ask in the Verizon forum. However, in general, you can't activate Sprint phones on Verizon and you can't activate Verizon phones on Sprint.
    Thrill me...

    well Verizon is not nearly as picky as Sprint, as long as you can get the Sprint blackberry to fully think it's Verizon's (by being able to *228 and take vzw data settings) in my experience their system will activate them no problem.

    I've flashed many razr's and krzr's over the years (i know i'm dating myself, but that was a common phone they both sold) and Verizon would activate Sprint branded ones just fine
