Even though the datasheet differences between the Palm Pre (offered by Sprint) and the Pre Plus (offered by other carriers) are minimal, the significantly improved hardware of the latter device makes it attractive for hardcore Pre heads.

A group of hackers has now figured out a way to put a Sprint transmitter into a Pre Plus. Minimal requirements are the following:

1. Activated Sprint Pre
2. Palm Pre Plus- It can be Verizon or AT&T, it doesn’t matter. It also doesn’t really matter if the ESN is clean or not, I used a brand new Pre Plus I got off Craigslist with a clean ESN, however the ones with bad ESN’s tend to be cheaper on Craigslist or Ebay. Buy whatever you can get the best deal on.

Given that the hardware changing process is described as difficult by the modder itself, I recommend you to apply extreme caution before following the instructions at the URL below:
