If I buy Blackberry CDMA version

If I buy the blackberry CDMA version will Sprint allow me to use it on my account? All i get from Sprint is buy the ph Me and bring it in and we will see if it works. How am I gonna buy a phone that's worth a couple hundred dollars to "see" if it works? I just want to know the truth

Re: If I buy Blackberry CDMA version

Does Sprint have any plans to "brand" the Blackberry Priv?  My understanding from technical dissecting of the phone is that the Priv was designed for and is equipped with the necessary bands of all the major US carriers including Sprint and Verizon.

Priv is only supported by AT&T in the US

Re: If I buy Blackberry CDMA version

We all know that (ATT alone currently carries the Priv).  Point is the Priv was designed and includes all the necessary bands to work on the networks of the other three "major" US carriers, Verizon, T-Mobil and yes Sprint.  It is a matter of whether Sprint or any one of the other carriers want to make the application and get the FCC permit to carry the phone, once the exclusivity deal with ATT expires.  Rumor has it that Verizon is making or has made the FCC application.to carry the Priv, after the ATT deal expires.

Re: If I buy Blackberry CDMA version

Now that Verizon and now T-Mobile (scheduled to release on Jan 26th) is carrying the Blackberry Priv by the end of the month since the AT&T exclusivity contract ends Jan 20th, does Sprint plan to carry the Blackberry Priv?  I'm hoping the Sprint Blackberry updates is in preparation for this.

Re: If I buy Blackberry CDMA version

Any further words, actions, rumors w.r.t. Sprint carrying the Blackberry Priv?  Apparently FCC has tested and cleared CDMA version of the phone.
