    I work at best buy so I can get at&t and sprint phones. I'm hoping i can use my discount.

    I broke my current Motorola v60 and already used the insurance on it.

    is it possible to do this? if so how would it be done.

    thanks

    Sprint uses the same modes (amps 800 / cdma 800 1900), so your best bet would be with one of their branded phones.

    No you can't. You used to be able to a couple years ago, but both companies now care. If the phone doesn't come from a friendly source, they won't let you use it. It is the exact same technology, but the esn won't be accepted.
