iphone from AT&T to Sprint

I have heard that it is possible to use the iPhone on the Sprint network. I was wondering if someone here could confirm this and drop me a link to a thread to get me going? I have heard the terms jailbrake and unlocked and not sure what the difference is. Also if there is a really easy software package to do so I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Re: iphone from AT&T to Sprint

The Iphone cannot e used on Sprints network. the use two different wireless technologies. AT&T is GSM and Sprint is CDMA. Aside from AT&T the only other carrier you could use the Iphone on would be T-mobile, but you wouldnt get 3G speeds

Snowplow said it best! I was using the iPhone 3GS unlocked on T-Mobile for a while and its much slower than it would be on AT&T. T-Mobiles 3G network doesn't work on the unlocked phone. Plus theres no MMS capabilities, & it lacks a bunch of other stuff unlocked.

Re: iphone from AT&T to Sprint

You can "use" it via their wifi hotspot thing *for data*, but that's like kissing your sister.

Otherwise, nope. No GSM carrier locked to AT&T phone will work on sprint or any other CDMA carrier.

Me? Nope. Service has been fine. I have been with Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T at various points, they all have their pros and cons.
