    I noticed that your reply said you were in Vancouver. I was wondering if you know anyone that can remotely flashes phones. I have 2 Motorola Photon Q phones that are on Sprint network. I wish to flash them to Koodo. Koodo did imei search and says they will work on their network. Thanks Don

    You cannot flash the CDMA portion of a device to Koodo, period.

    Koodo's IMEI search may have given that info because the Photon also supports HSPA 850/1900 which is what Koodo uses on the Bell/Telus network. However, the Photon has a non-removable SIM. So there is absolutely no way you'd get it to work on any Canadian carrier.

    Even if you could flash a CDMA phone to a CDN carrier, they are starting to wind down the CDMA network. The first phase is that sometimes in 2015 Telus (which runs mainly the Western portion of the network Koodo runs on) will shut down EV-DO leaving a bare-bones 1X network.

    In contrast though, many Verizon LTE devices come with unlocked SIM slots and support CDN HSPA frequencies. For example the Droid 4.
