Get them to add the ESN to their database. From what I understand that is almost impossible to do.

It can't be done, Sprint won't activate a phone that they do not have an ESN number for in their system. Good luck with that.

Re: Activating a VZW Droid on Sprint. What needs to be done.

Yea, I believe the only way this could be done is by doing that one thing that we can't talk about here....
Read the second line in this rules thread for your answer:
PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING PPCGeeks.com Rules
I don't think I can get in trouble for linking to the rules but who knows...

Re: Activating a VZW Droid on Sprint. What needs to be done.

What needs to be done is Sprint needs to buy out Verizon.

I don't see this happening any time soon.

Haha, more like Verizon needs to buy out Sprint and then keep all of Sprint's current plan options and pricing
