    Though Sprint and Appalachian operate the same type of network, phone interoperability between CDMA carriers is not as simple as it would appear. There are a number of reasons carriers won't activate a non-native phone, and they vary from carrier to carrier.

    I'm assuming you are already active on Appalachian and use the Moto Quantico? Are you asking if you can still use the Sprint Samsung Galaxy phone on Appalachian?

    Since they told you they won't activate the Sprint phone, it won't be worth it to pursue getting it activated, same network type aside, as there is no guarantee it will ever work out.

    You might want to sell the Sprint phone on eBay and use the money to get a similar phone with Appalachian.
