    Default Help with new Sprint 8GB iPhone 4

    I just bought a new Sprint iPhone 4 and activated it but I can't connect to the network. When I go into settings it is saying Carrier: Verizon 11.1. Is there any way for me to manually provision the phone for Sprint?

    We got these phones from Apple. The invoice states them as being CDMA-USA not assigned to a specific carrier. When we call both sprint and verizon they say the MEID is good to go. However, since the phones are programmed for Verizon as the carrier out of the box, they won't talk to the Sprint network.

    Is there a way to switch the PRL/carrier to Sprint? These phones may be unlocked, hence why the MEID is on both databases (Sprint and Verizon), would that help changing the carrier?

    If you browse the cricket iphone forum you should find a thread on changing the prl's.

    I can't see that post even after I pressed thanks. I think there is two issues 1) we can't jailbreak the phone, its still on ios 5 and 2) thats from verizon to cricket, aren't those the same towers? ... MetroPCS uses the Sprint network
