Let’s say, hypothetically, I have a CDMA provisioned 3.0 phone that needs warranty repair/replacement (in either case I could be sent a refurbished phone). What happens when I receive a different phone from the manufacturer than the one I sent in? It’s not currently possible to activate it on CDMA, correct?
Edit: While hypothetical, this situation is one I am interested in because my mother in law will likely need a phone with more storage soon. She is in a CDMA coverage area (according to the Coverage Check | Republic Wireless with which I concur), and she tends to break electronics.
