Not sure exactly how accurate this information is but the implications here are so huge, so monumental, so tremendous — that I felt I should share it with our readers. We’ve been receiving multiple reports from both Sprint customers and employees that apparently… wait for it… the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus is safe to flash on Sprint. The information comes through online chats and phone calls with Sprint sales support and according to them, they know all about Google’s flagship (and why wouldn’t they?) and have given the device the green light for activation on their network.

On the surface, it all makes sense. Hypothetically, anyway. Just take a look at the Verizon Galaxy Nexus’s supported radio bands (CDMA 800/1900, CDMA2000 1xEV-DO), it actually supports all the same frequencies that Sprint uses for both 2G and 3G although, sadly, no 4G (not a problem for most Sprint users, I’m sure). We still haven’t gotten word on anyone successfully flashing Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus over to Sprint (or if it’s even possible) but it seems Sprint is more ready and willing. As soon as we get more info, we’ll let you know. Would any Sprint customers out there be willing to pay full price for the Verizon’s GNex?

Thanks, Ben!
