I was trying to flash my sprint note 2 back to stock and somehow i downloaded the file for verizon.

my phone is working but under the verizon logo and it's saying that the sim card is not supported... since it's a sprint sim card and all.

what do i need to do to flash my phone back to stock sprint? any help would be appreciated.

thanks.
 
i dropped my phone off at a shop to get fixed and theyre having issues with it. this is beyond frustrating. im waiting for the call to pick it up still running the verizon os.

what can i do at this point? i tried to flash the stock rom using odin and i get an error within 30 seconds of starting. i'm using the combination file is that not the right one to use?

the next time you decide to flash anything, ensure that it is sprint based. the post will usually specify what carrier. take your time. when i first got my s3, i wasn't paying attention and flashed an international version rom...boom, paperweight. luckily sprint couldn't figure it out and sent me a brand new one. make sure it's sprint based
