Hi, I'm Ben from The Cell Phone Broker in San Jose, California, and today I'm going to kind of explain to you what flashing cell phones mean. Flashing in the capability to move your Sprint or a Verizon cell phone, or a Metro PCS cell phone between any of those three networks. So, in the past those phones have been locked on those networks, so if you buy a Sprint phone, it's going to only be able to be used on Sprint. If you buy a Verizon phone, it can only be used on Verizon. Now we have the capability to move those devices around between the networks. So let's say you have a Verizon phone, and you want to switch over to a company like Metro PCS.
