    Default Will my Sprint phones work on Verizon?

    Probably going to switch to Verizon later this year. I was wondering if any of my Sprint phones would work on Verizon. The three phones I have are the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5c and the Nexus 5

    I'm pretty sure they won't.

    The Nexus for sure won't... The iPhones I don't believe so either. I'll get our Verizon expert in here to give you the 100 percent answer .

    Sorry, they won't work. Verizon would only accept phones whose imei is in their database

    In other words, the Sprint phone COULD work (from a technology perspective), but it WON'T work due to the standard CDMA provider practice of only allowing devices with specific serial numbers (IMEI).

    Correct, both use similar cdma technology. However 4g is on different bands
