    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to take a Moto Q that was started with Verizon service and get it unlocked to be used on the Sprint network?

    Great reply.

    So trm, usually Sprint won't activate a non Sprint phone. Don't even bother because the Sprint Q is better anyway.

    Unlocking phones is something generally associated with GSM. If you have an unlocked GSM phone you can get a SIM from another GSM network and use the phone on that network if the bands are the same. Verizon and Sprint are both CDMA which is a different technology and CDMA does not use SIM cards. You can't easily bring a Sprint phone to Verizon or a Verizon phone to Sprint.

    The orignal q stinks period. Supposedly sprints is a bit better because of their software as opposed to verison. What I would do is wait a bit until the updated model is available on sprint and then buy that. Verizon Q won't fetch you much if you try and sell it, but give it a shot.
