Default Flashing Sprint Firmware

What happens if you try to ODIN Sprint firmware onto a Verizon device?

It (hopefully soft) bricks it. ODIN will "Fail!" and your phone will reject the foreign organism, requiring you to flash a stock ROM to recover.
Oh, and probably setting the warranty void flag in the process.

Apparently you're not aware of the fact that the Verizon Galaxy S4 is NOT the same hardware as the Sprint Galaxy S4.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

I was not. I find that interesting though. Similar LTE band. Do you know what differences there are?
