Default [Q] Unlocked Sprint Note 3

In theory, wouldn't it be possible to use an Unlocked Sprint S3 on Verizon? They both use CDMA networks. I was just wondering if I could do that and stay with Verizon, but also get a Bootloader unlock.

They both do use cdma but I think they use dofferen bands so it would not be possible and even if it was you would be stick on 3g or with no data at all

You can flash a Verizon Note 3 to Sprint and you can flash a Sprint Note 3 to Verizon. It has nothing to do with carrier locked/unlocked phones in CDMA. Flashing is done through CDMA flashing tools such as DFS. Either direction you go, you will only get voice, SMS, MMS, and 3G data speeds. No LTE. It is best that you just trade your Sprint Note 3 for a Verizon Note 3 if you've never done a CDMA phone flash before and/or if you want to use LTE.
