Default [Q] Motorola XT557

Hi,

My friend gave me an used Motorola XT557. HW V4.0. It was a Republic Wireless phone and he is not using it anymore and his contract expired. Because it is a CDMA phone, can I use it with other CDMA carriers? such as Verizon, Sprint, or those CDMA prepaid wireless providers? Or I have to tweak the OS/ROM in order to do that? Thank you for your help.

Probably not with Verizon. Possibly with Sprint, since Republic uses their network. The best people to ask would be Verizon or Sprint themselves.
Relax, go nutz!
