Yes I know, but I'm trying to convert a gsm rom to cdma. Once that is done, I can add the Sprint APNs. Do you know how to convert it?

This won't work. GSM and CDMA are radios (hardware) in the phone so a software change wouldn't help.

But what makes a rom GSM or CDMA? Are there specific files that I could switch out with a Sprint rom that would allow me to do this?

Negative.

You can't convert a GSM phone to CDMA by ROM. There aren't any files that can change that.

Ok, thanks so much for your answer! If you don't mind me asking, why is this? What makes a GSM rom different from CDMA? I know that GSM and CDMA are different radios, but why can't the files just be changed?

In this case, its not the files but the ROM is designed for the different chipset. So it still boils down to a hardware difference.
