    I was unsure where to start so if this question needs moved to another forum please do so.

    I work at a regional carrier called Revol in Ohio and Indiana we flash over CDMA phones using a service called houdini (HoudiniSoft - Keep The Handset, Switch Networks) My question is if I buy a generic spec phone from china would I be able to flash the phone onto revol service. We are only CDMA so changing a sim card wont work

    I spoke to Houdini customer service and they said it should work that most problems are getting around the blocks the big carriers have programmed into the phone. But I don't think they know how flashing a phone works at the developer level.

    The phone would have stock android on it and be unlocked.

    Is it possible to put a generic phone onto a local service?

    As long as it supports the CDMA bands you are flashing it to, it should work fine. And seeing as you are getting the phone from China, you wouldn't even have to worry about the carriers or the DMCA stopping you as they only apply to phones that are sold in the us.
