    You can't. Different radio and frequency. Sprint is a completely different network. You can flash the phone to a provider that uses Verizons network like cricket if they are available in your area.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    ^^Sprint doesn't have a completely different network? Maybe different frequency but their both CDMA, but yeah he's right you can't flash Verizon phones to sprint.

    they didn't force you to take the Samsung replenish you chose to buy that phone for whatever reason. Sprint has several high end android phones that blow the samsung replenish out of the water. Return it and get something like HTC EVO 4g, Samsung Galaxy 2 EPIC, HTC EVO 3D,.... just to name a few.

    Verizon and Sprint use exactly the same technology for everything except for 4G (LTE or WiMax). The only reason you can't use the phones on each other's network is that they both refuse to activate phones with a serial number (ESN) that was sold for the other network.
