What?

My father activated his GP Nexus 5 on Sprint no problem, and my brother brought his over to Sprint FROM Tmobile just fine...

Literally 5 minutes in the online chat interface (with a Sprint SIM from the local store)

Seems a rare case or luck. As others haven't had such success. And speculated if possible at all. I know that thread is around here somewhere. Well at least I can now reference one success story.

I know it can be done! The first n5 I had sold it to somebody wanting it for sprint. They activated it no problem! They called me to let me know afterwards.

It all depends on who you talk to really. They most likely won't add the esn or whatever to sprint. Some will actually do it for you though if you get lucky. It's pretty just like how best buy does price matching. Some will match the play store while others will refuse to.

It just dumb on sprint part for them doing this. If they want customer based to increase then they should have had Google make them a SPRINT model only like the previous nexus phones they sold! Honestly the customers coming to sprint and wanting a nexus 5 are most likely way small for this to be even a issue. So why not just train your employees to know how to activated the phone? Simple

Also Walmart tries to tell people they don't price match but they run commercials all the time saying they price match.....
