Hi, My friend Joined Boost Mobile and they gave him an HTC One. He is not happy with Boost and is going to change carriers. He wants to know if he can flash his phone for another carrier like Sprint or Verizon or ATT or T-mobile or is he better off selling the phone on Ebay and getting a phone through his new carrier?
Thanks for any input you can give.

Did I post this in the wrong forum?
170 "views" and no replies?

When we talked about this, he said the phone doesn't have a sim. I have no idea if thats true or not. I texted him to double check. He got the phone from Boost when he signed up with them.

Looks like a Sprint variant/owned by Sprint, don't know how they operate, so cannot help you. You might wanna check the HTC One Sprint section if anybody knows: http://forum.xda-developers.com/sprint-htc-one
