Sprint iPhone on Verizon?

Is there any way to make my Sprint iPhone work on Verizon, and then transfer my Sprint service to another Sprint phone? I'm going to guess it's technically possible but the carriers won't allow it; and if that is the case, anyone have a potential workaround? (Or perhaps I'll be pleasantly surprised.)

Sadly, the easiest certain way would be to hop on Craigslist or some other classified section type site and try to find someone in the same, but reverse situation as you. Either that, or sell your phone outright and buy one for Verizon.

There is no way possible to make one work on the others network.

Verizon only allows phones sold for Verizon (or by Apple for Verizon) to run on their network.

There's no workaround.
Verizon wont activate any sprint iphones on their network and vice versa.
Like others said, sell it.
