    So I just bought a cheap bb tour off craigslist today and dumb me did not check to see if it was Sprint until a little after I bought it. It is Verizon.

    Is there any way to change it from a verizon to sprint phone or am I out of luck?

    It cannot be changed. You could sell it to someone who has VZW.

    I don't think Sprint will activate ESN's that do not belong to them.

    No, because they're both CDMA.
    So they don't use SIM cards, that's only for GSM carriers/devices.

    Or you could unlock it and use it with AT&T. It's a little off the plan, but it works. You could also call Sprint and ask if they can activate it.

    No you cannot. AT&T uses GSM, different technology.
