    Can I order a iphone through sprint cs, not activate it and sell it to verizon?

    My account is due for an upgrade. Can I order an iphone 5 through sprint customer service, not activate it when it gets shipped to me, and sell it online to someone who has a Verizon network? Will they be able to use the phone just fine?

    I know it will extend my contract, which is fine. But I want to make sure the iphone isn't locked into any carrier just because i ordered it through them.

    Sprint iPhone will be locked to Sprint as far as I know.

    But if I never activated it on the sprint network. Why would it be locked to sprint? I thought sprint iPhone and Verizon iPhones are built the exact same?

    I'm pretty sure it goes by ESN. Even though the devices are the same if the ESN doesn't match up to their database they will not activate it.
