No because you cannot add an ESN to Sprint's network, but you could use it on Cricket or Boost.

Maybe the iphone will be LTE only since Verizon is rolling it out in November. That could be the reason they are pushing it so early. Then the next iphone for ATT will also be LTE because ATT is planning to follow Verizon.

Re: IPhone to ever un/officially appear on the sprint network?

Sprint and Verizon are more picky and require that the phone is purchased branded by them. They don't swap like GSM carriers, or some of the local market type carriers (cricket, metro).

Boost? from what I remember only Sprint phones can be cheated their way into Boost...Page Plus Cellular would work

NOOOO ANYTHING BUT AN iPhone to Sprint!!! NOOOOO!!!! But it won't be possible, unlike GSM there is no SIM card and it goes by the ESN..they won't add phones to their ESN databases cause they want to force us to use them.

But if it only does come to verizon and not sprint..maybe sprint will allow ppl to add the iphones on their everythign plan... just to cash in on the popularity...

Question is , if Apple still wants % of the money of the plan it may cost extra by itself...but maybe what she needs is a good Android phone and she will never turn back...
