Unlock a Sprint Mogul for Verizon? Possible to change the software or rom to do it?

I had asked this before but maybe I should rephrase it. Can I buy a Sprint Mogul. And unlock it to use on Verizon? Can I perhaps unlock the rom and replace it with the verizon one also? I ask because I can buy a Sprint Mougl cheaper than the xv6800 on ebay. I guess because they have been out longer.

Have you 2 ever tried google. It really works and much faster then waiting for answers from others on a simple search like this one. http://blogs.zdnet.com/mobile-gadgeteer/?p=699 or http://www.engadget.com/2007/11/27/v...evice-in-2008/
I also included a link for google so you wont have to search for that too. http://www.google.com/.

It is possible to unlock, as to wether verizon will hook the phone up is the only issue. you will be looking for a program called GETSPC.zip, it allows you to get the unlock code, small app that you run on the device,(not your pc) you basically punch in the esn number (make sure to use caps) and it will give you the MSL/SPC lock code. I've done this to a few ppc's i've had (my home provider allows any old phone on their network for $5 fee,as the mogul i have was sold has bad sprint esn.) . The only problem you could have is that they won't allow a foreign phone on the network. As far as flashing to another rom, there is several threads on this topic.. its what the search feature is for

those articles aren't exactly the case currently.

verizon's systems do not typically allow their people to activate phones that verizon didn't sell themselves (they track the esn's in some database).

search here for a couple recent threads but if you can get to the right department to find the people with the high enough mojo then they can add a sprint esn to their esn database and then you would be all set. (it's not always easy though)

The other option is cloning an ESN from an existing Verizon phone onto the Mogul and activating that ESN. However, its better just to buy a Verizon 6800.

Well the Verizon xv6800 are higher priced than the sprint 6800"s atm. At least on ebay. I can buy one for around $300 dollars or so. If I buy the VZW xv6800 it will cost me almost $200 dollars more. Plus my NE2 isnt till this coming october . I just hate to spend money on it when I feel I could save because times are tough right now. And I kind of really dont like my treo.

Any help would be great.

How bout unlocking XV6800 on VZW to use on Sprint?

Thinking of jumping ship since I can get out of contract without ETF with recent text message increase.

Thoughts?
