Before I begin, I'm not certain if I'm in the wrong forum but I'll know eventually..

Is it possible, (if so, how) to use a GSM phone for a CDMA service, Sprint to be exact.

all in all, can i use my tmobile galaxy s2 (unlocked) for my new sprint service?
if so, how can i go about doing that?!?!?!?!

i googled around a bit and found that Sprint uses the 1900 MHz band for both voice and data service.

Sprint USA uses MHz
800/1900 for 2g
1900 for 3g
2500 for 4g

Infact you will not be able to make calls if your region uses 800MHz for calls.
