Main question and a little back ground, I bought an HTC thunderbolt a few years ago and I was bummed that I couldn't activate it with my carrier. I am afraid that I won't be able to activate my shiny new black HTC one.
I've asked my carrier what variant the sell, and they told me the sprint branded HTC one.
Do you think I'll have any issues with activation?
Does the black have the SAME exact radios/etc, I am hoping this will be as painless as possible.
Thanks for your time
