    I like my sprint BB so much I am getting my wife one, it is used and has a clear ESN it's a branded AT&T unit on CDMA, can these be unlocked to work on Sprint? If so How?

    At&t phones/BB's will not work on Sprint. At&t is a GSM network while Sprint is CDMA.

    The phone also doesnt possess an ESN. GSM uses the IMEI identifier for the device, but the SIM card actually identifies you to the network; and CDMA uses the ESN.

    Check ebay or craigslists for a GSM device.

    no... they need a CDMA device. Their carrier is Sprint.

    BBEnriched - It is a paid service or you can try calling AT&T although I am not sure that
    will work
