Default [Q] Sprint Galaxy Note 2 on Straight Talk- can it be done?

I need help flashing a Sprint Galaxy Note 2 to Straight Talk. Any help would be appreciated. I have DFS already.

I know it can be done. I'm just debating doing it myself or paying $10 for a flashing service. I've heard both good and bad about one called cyberflashing and I don't know anything about any of the other services.

There are many different flashing services that have windows apps you run on a regular computer. You connect the phone to the computer running the app and they go in through the Internet and do everything. I haven't found cheaper than $10 and some are over $50.

As long as your device has a clean esn you will not need to flash to straight talk. It will use sprint towers since it is a sprint phone. They do charge you 15 dollars to add your esn to their network via CDMA bring your own phone option. The service is cheap but they took forever to port my number over and customer service is a bunch of buffoons. Don't expect them to be very helpful, they are rude, always sound like they are partying and they can't answer many technical questions.

I have had lte working on a d710 from sprint. So it should work on an L900. It worked as soon as it was activated and I used it until I got my L900 which I flashed to pageplus because the sprint coverage sucked so bad at my new place. You see it works on its native network on Straight talk so lte should work on your note2.
