Prepaid CDMA???

So a friend lost their Diamond the other day right after I unlocked it for her. She was on a T-Mobile prepaid plan because she is from Canada and doesn't have the credit to get a phone in the US. We have been looking for a GSM Diamond to buy used and activate. She got the last one for $150. We can't seem to find anything other than CDMA Diamonds. She likes the Diamond because it is small and does everything she needs. Any idea who does a good prepaid plan on CDMA so we can scoop up one of these sprint or alltel Diamonds and get her going? I looked at the VZW prepaid plans, but it doesnt have any info on data etc. And sprint doesn't seem to have much info on it either. Thanks for the help.

I don't think they will let you activate a Diamond on Sprint prepaid or Verizon, but you may be able to sneak Alltel prepaid if you can find it in your area still.

Boost does prepaid plans for around 50 dollars a month and that's unlimited everything. Plus it's on the sprint network. Not sure about using a diamond on it though.

Good ideas. I can't seem to find any info on if they will allow you to activate your phone on their network. I am assuming that it isn't possible or illegal to re program the phone to emulate a different phone so they wouldn't know you are using a diamond instead of a whatever.

That's called cloning ESNs and yes that is illegal and not discussed here. But you may be able to with Alltel and an Alltel Diamond maybe?

I figured as much. Wonder what the big deal is anyway. Not about to break the law in phone land. Speeding on the freeway sure why not. Messing with what is probably a Federal law no thanks. Are you saying try activating and alltel diamond on alltels prepaid network?

I thought Cricket would let you put anything on their network.

Re: Prepaid CDMA???

I did some more searching on Boost. Seems that they may let you activate a phone on there network if you are already a customer. I think I am going to call and try and activate my old XV6800 on it as a test.
