My motorola Photon (sprint) tryng to find out if either of these Verizon SIM cards that I had purchased previously from Amazon would work in this phone I have the micro sim card and the 4gLTE SIM card


sim cards are a dime a dozen,you need to buy a service and activate them for them to work,if you are going from sprint to verizon,you need to take your phone to verizon and ask if they can unlock it

Sprint phones

  • CDMA carrier
  • Uses 800MHz and 1900MHz spectrums primarily (bands 26 and 25), and 2.5 GHz for Sprint Spark (band 41)
  • Does allow devices to be used on selected Sprint resellers such as Ting
  • Phones will not work with Verizon
  • LTE devices and iPhones may work with GSM networks, although service possibly limited
  • Still not an 'unlock friendly' carrier
Sprint has recently launched a 'Bring Your Own Device' campaign for selected MVNOs (smaller wireless providers who operate on its network).
This means that some (not all) Sprint devices will be able to be used on either Ting or Boost Mobile (unfortunately, Sprint's prepaid MVNO, Virgin Mobile, doesn't accept phones from any other carrier - you'll have to buy a Virgin Mobile handset to sign up for service).
Outside of carriers on the Sprint network, taking your Sprint phone to Verizon Wireless is more or less impossible. We've heard of people trying, but so far no success stories.
If you wish to take a Sprint device to T-Mobile or AT&T, you may be able to do so with LTE-capable devices and Apple iPhones...but there are no guarantees. Some handsets sold by Sprint are marked as 'global' phones, meaning they are also have room for a SIM card despite running on Sprint's CDMA network.
As confusing as it is, if you can get your Sprint phone unlocked, there is a chance you can have it activated for service on a GSM network - but you'll need to speak with your new carrier and ask whether they'll accept the make and model of your handset.
Even if you do get the all-clear, getting your phone unlocked is the tricky part. While Sprint are happy to unlock phones for international use (provided the device is paid off and the customer's account is in good standing), the company isn't as enthusiastic about unlocking devices when customers wish to take them to another carrier. There's more info about the unlocking process - and what a headache it can be - here.
And if you do manage to get your Sprint phone unlocked and find a carrier that agrees to let you bring it on to their network, it's unlikely that the phone will work in quite the same way as it did on Sprint, due to the differences in carrier networks we've discussed above.

I have a Nextel sim card in my boost phone i335 I need special. Code


Call Nextel and have them activate that phone to your account.

Nextel, Sprint, and Boost are the same company.

Nextel is the iden network,
Sprint is the CDMA network
and Boost is the prepaid network. But their owned by Sprint

Will my phone work


Above is incorrect. Boost uses two different networks each is different technology. The one using SIM cards is the IDEN network (Nextel). The other is Sprint (who owns Boost) and that does not take a SIM, it's a CDMA network. All Sprint phones can work on this network,but you must get Boost to activate the phone. They won't do this unless you are already a customer and tell them you are replacing a broken phone, then give the Sprint phone ESN# (under battery) for them to log in your account. If you have a Sprint LG Rumor it will then work without unlocking or flashing, no changes necessary.
