compatible with sprint network?

I have a text now phone that im not using anymore and a friend of mine needs a phone that will work with his sprint contract.
From what i understand textnow has a custom ROM but they use the sprint network for service. If i give him the textnow phone, is the textnow ROM 100% compatible with Sprint or will we need to take it to sprint?

Hi Ginny! 

That's a great question! Essentially what our ROM does is configure the phone so that all calling and texting can exclusively be supported through the TextNow app as opposed to the native Android phone and messaging apps. Since no other carrier has access to this technology (including Sprint), you would not be able to activate the TextNow device as is with Sprint. 

Hope that helps you out!

In this case, I do not believe that Sprint would be able to assist you. 

I would say that the best option for your friend would be to use the TextNow phone to activate his own account with us! If he is on a contract with Sprint, and that is not a possibility, I'm afraid he will have to look into alternate options for a new phone. 

Please let us know if you have any further questions!
