    Default Can the Photon be Switched to T-Mobile?

    Looking for help I read somewhere that this can be possible, Switching from Sprint to a T-Mobile Network. Can this be possible? Can someone point me to the direction where I can fined the how to, step by step directions, or if someone knows how to walk me through it, It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Just in the last week, some guys over at xda were able to flash a japanese radio to get domestic GSM working. ATT is probably best from what i can see, TMo you are only going to get edge(2g)

    Yeah 2g on T-Mobile until they make their 1900 mhz band their 3g/4g which they are working on doing. I have an old photon that I am going to flash that radio and try it out on a gsm network this weekend hopefully.

    Did you flash your phone? Did it work? I'd love to be able to switch to Straight Talk on my Photon, although I am seriously considering getting a Nexus 4.

    I'd like to do the same. It is possible? I have 2 photons. Is it going to work? Will it work near optimal effectiveness or be limited to 2g on T-Mobile.

    Works like a champ. I field tested it for a full month with a Net10 ATT sim and it worked far better than my Sprint Photon. Instructions are here:

    Thanks for the link, I will try that probably on the weekend.

    However, would it be possible to call Sprint and just ask them to unlock my Photon?
    I already got a Galaxy S4 and not using the Photon.
