I've searched around and everywhere says that the VZW X works on Sprint but, does the opposite work? I know VZW's X is set up with a plethora of radios but I haven't seen how Sprint's is set up.

Thanks in advance!

No. No chance Verizon would allow a phone from another carrier to be activated on their network.

I've not seen any mention of the Verizon X working on Sprint. I have seen posts of the Verizon X working on GSM carriers due to the GSM bands it supports (mainly for global roaming as far as Verizon is concerned), and SIM Unlocked out of the box (due to VZW's 700Mhz auction win). And LTE working on carriers like T-Mobile who also use Band 4 for LTE.

Either way, Sprint and Verizon still use CDMA for Voice, SMS, and 2G/3G data but on different frequencies. So I would not expect the Sprint X to be able to work on Verizon.
