If the Blackberry was oringially on the Sprint network, and the ESN is clear and not 'hotlined', then yes, you can.

Sprint uses the CDMA network, which means the phones are programmed to one carrier when sold.  They aren't like GSM phones where you can buy an unlocked phone and put in carrier specific SIM chips. 

Hope this answers your question!

And double check in a Sprint store that the ESN is clean!
