Sanjay,
While 'possible', it is not without pitfalls. When you go to program the
phone to the Verizon network, it will ask for a code. Sprint knows the code
but won't tell you. Once in a while, a few crafty people have gained that
code (it's different for every phone). The next hurdle is that few Sprint
phones will accept the Verizon PRL. So, while it is 'possible' to make this
happen, the end result is usually not worth the effort.

Bill-

Once you have the MSL code (or whatever it is called) do you then have the
option to change it to all zero's?

If you change it to all zero's it should accept a Verizon PRL right?

When I left sprint, I sold the phone on ebay and then used the money to buy
a verizon phone on ebay. Lucked out.. I actually made a dollar :)  Wooo-Hooo!

Buy a Verizon phone.

In the weeks ahead, get on ebay and get a few Nokia 3285, Nokia 5185 or my
favorite Motorola 270c. The first 2 are cheap, the 3rd is my favorite. If
you can't afford a new Verizon phone, keep a spare.

This has worked on all the Kyocera's and Motorola's I've switched from
Sprint to Verizon.
