Hm that actually might work
I used to flash sprint phones to Pocket wireless...I have a disk I bought off ebay that gives you the required material...It's just called "Flashing Software"
you do have todo some prl editing and it also allows you to look at passwords, etc. but I'm not sure if it's a longshot from iphones
Has anyone flashed the iPhone to Sprint or US Cellular yet? I know they did it with Cricket.
Well if you can flash on thing why can't you flash another? But i don't think anyone has done it yet, but i assume its possible.
I will be honest. I would get straight to work on it to Sprint since I have Sprint, but I do not have any money to get the Verizon iPhone 4
Its all a matter of getting the phone flashed. Metro uses something called Houdinisoft to add phones to the network. It basically adds the esn and changes some info on the phone so you can get text and calls.
If it's supported with Houdinisoft then anyone with access to a license, can do it, but i think you have to be registered with metro. Such as a metro reseller.
I may be wrong, but someone higher up could add the ESN. Then you use CDMA Workshop and change the info to match.
Same with sprint I think, it could be manually added, and boost, virgin too.
iphone 4 flash to sprint
its fairly simple, yet somewhat complicated. I say somewhat because I havnt done it yet. I actually just used my girlfriends upgrade she had with verizon to get a white 32GB iphone 4. Just got it in the mail today. I have Sprint and im going to attempt it, if accomplished your gonna see it listed on eBay with no reserve so I can sit back and enjoy watching everyone fight over the price since I don't see any active listings of iphones on ebay capable to work on sprint. I bought CDMA workshop a few months back for $100 and I've found it a very simple program to flash/change ESN numbers on an epic I was playing with. I easily flashed a boost mobile ESN and tried calling out after.. It said welcome to boost mobile. Flashed back to the sprint ESN, then activated it on my account and it all worked perfect going back to sprint.
Heres me theory:
You need to clone a sprint.. Plain and simple. You need any type of 3G phone (NO Blackberrys from what I hear). Let's say I have an HTC EVO, which I do.
First I need to root it, second flash a custom rom like Mikfroyo 4.6. Now that its rooted to S-OFF(Security OFF), Its time to playyy.
Second, Plug it into my laptop, use cdma workshop to get the spc/msl. Easy, ok now im gonna get the HA and AAA shared secrets(Required for 3G to work) using QPST and cdma workshop. Gottem, Saved, Done, and unplugged evo.
Third, I need to jailbreak the iphone 4, easy and done. Now its time to unlock it. Ok I've never done this part before so this is where I need to read tutorials!! If anyone wants to help, feel free. I wanna do this today. The more help, the faster. This can't be that hard!!
If all goes good, when I unlock it, assuming its somewhat the same as android. I'm gonna plug it in, use cdma workshop to write the ESN, then go to qpst and write the HA/AAA passwords, etc. It should be working instantly since my evo is activated with sprint.. the iPhone will be recognized as an EVO because it now has the evo's esn and 3G data information flashed to it.
ALL in ALL I'm pretty sure this is the most legit way to get an iphone working. Don't hope for a sprint rep to add the iphones ESN to their database, thats thinking in LA LA LAND. You need to clone a sprint phone and flash all its info to the iphone 4(verizon only). This is amazingly possible people!!!
Just wondering if anyone has gotten the iphone 4 or 4S to work on US Cellular?
Sprint and Verizon generally don't let phones that aren't "natively " of their carrier on their network. Cricket and Boost do though.
US Cellular is reluctant to, but can, switch nearly any Verizon phone to their network.
I think Verizon is being a bit lame and blocking (or blacklisting, whatever it's called,) iPhones that are being used on other networks though. I believe they did so with people who switched their VZW iPhone 4's to Page Plus... (Which happens to be a cheap prepaid carrier owned by Verizon, with the claim that nearly any VZW phone can be put on service with them.)
