    Default I use my Verizon Galaxy Note 2 on T-Mobile and AT&T, but can I use it on Sprint as well?

    I have a Verizon Galaxy Note 2. I don't have to root it to use it on T-Mobile and AT&T. All I have to do is pop in their SIM cards and start talking and surfing the net.

    Is it possible to do the same on Sprint's network? I don't know how Spring Galaxy Note 2 works. Is it compatible?

    yeah... I just found out... a co-worker showed me her Sprint version of Galaxy Note 2. Why did Sprint(or Samsung?) neuter their Note 2 like that?

    Sprint's version isn't neutered, sim card is embedded. But that isn't the reason you can't use it on Sprint. The reason is if the phone isn't Sprint branded which is the esn isn't in Sprint's database. It isn't coming on the network. Same way with Verizon. Sprint and Verizon's primary cell network is cdma, not gsm.

    Can it be done the other way around? I have already rooted my note (Sprint) but I want to be able to use it on a verizon prepaid plan. I have searched for tutorials on this, but so far I've found nothing except for the S4. Any help?
