Actually, you can activate most Sprint phones on the VZW network.  Both carriers use CDMA technology.  rita@aol, you will need to take the iPhone to a VZW store to determine compatibility for certain.

Verizon will NOT import IMEI's into their database.  It will not work without that.

Agree with Tidbits

Sprint locks their phones and Verizon will not add the IMEI into the Verizon database. Since the CDMA iPhone 4 has no SIM card, there isw no option for that. So in full summary It will not work, not at all.
