    He walked into a Sprint store in Grand Rapids, MI and bought a Storm. I have no idea how he did this and I'm trying to figure out how. Any ideas on how?

    Its not a storm. Sprint doesnt sell the storm, so you wouldnt find it in their stores. They have many other touchscreen devices however.

    Trust me, it's a Storm. I'm calling the store tomorrow to find out what's going on.

    He either brought it with him and got it activated there....or they are selling it under the table for big $$$$

    Does it have the Verizon branding on the battery door? If so, your friend is either spinning some serious BS, or maybe someone at the Sprint store is selling Storms, but not in his official capacity as a Sprint rep.

    Still getting the storm to work on Sprint would require quite a bit more than just selling the device and walking into the store.

    he would really have no reason to B.S. about this. As I said earlier, I'm going to call the store personally to find out whats going on. Believe me, something isn't adding up to me either.

    Sprint is CDMA aren't they? Shouldn't be that hard to get it working on that network (I don't know why you would want to. Sprint has crap for service)

    Hehehe. anyway. Moving on.....

    Do your homework.

    This phone is still a Verizon exclusive. There is no way the op's friend just walked into a sprint store and purchased & activated this device.

    in addition to everything already pointed out, if I am not mistaken Spring will not activate an IMEI that is not branded to their network.
