    Please Help a Brother Out

    So I just got in my new Samsung galaxy note 2, but low and behold it is an unlocked version, which would be great if I didn't have sprint as my provider. So my question is... Is there a way to get a CDMA number for an unlocked international version of the note 2 so that I can switch my service over to my new phone? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for your time,
    Urnewbestie

    If I understand you correctly, you're saying you have the international version of the Galaxy Note 2 and you want to run it on a CDMA network, right? Since the majority of the CDMA users are in the US, why didn't you just buy a CDMA version of the phone from Sprint or that other CDMA company?

    I ordered it online and the ad was misleading. Now that I have emailed the company about the issues they are not willing to give me a refund or exchange. So you can see the pickle I have put myself in.

    So just use one of the GSM carriers like AT&T or T-Mobile. They give you a SIM card and you're ready to Rock & Roll.

    I think you'll be further ahead to sell the unlocked one and purchase the proper one. You should have no problem selling it.

    You might want to talk to the boys at. WebOS forums. They have a lot of experience turning gms phones into Sprint phones. Google webOS frankenphone.

    However you will need a sodding Iron and the willingness to kill two phones. So good luck.

    Lay the blame on Verizon for concocting the CDMA system in the first place and Sprint for adopting it instead of GSM like the rest of the world.
