Not reporting the correct phone MEID


I was wondering if someone could explain something to me.
I have a SPRINT iphone 6 that I am currently using on a VERIZON Network.
I think the rsim i have is version 9.3 or 9.4.

It works fine and it connects to the network fine/makes calls/texts/etc..

Problem I have is that Verizon thinks I am using the phone that I had previously (Iphone SE) with the Verizon Sim Card that I put into the RSIM/IPHONE 6

So in the Verizon settings on the webpage, It shows up as an SE not a 6.
The Meid on the webpage reflects accurately. It thinks I am using the SE even though the card/rsim are in the 6 and the 6 works.

Ideas? Do I just not understand completely how the RSIM works?

P.S. Thanks Kinglock, without your work I would have an otherwise useless phone locked to the Sprint Network (That they refuse to unlock because Im not the original owner)

Noone has an answer?

Id like to get this phone switched over on my account.
My Verizon account shows me that I am still using the SE even though I have it working on the 6 with the SIM card from the SE. It never switched over and it looks like the card is telling it tie itself to the SE.

I would like to reflect this info correctly so that I can activate and use the SE

Do you think Verizon has an office here? Why do not call them directly?

ribbentrop. Great suggestion thanks! Your suggestion would have been helpful if I didnt already try that.

I went through 3 different reps on the phone that couldnt figure out what was going on. I talked to the "upper level tech" whose suggestion was only to get a different sim card. I have two others.

Intrestingly enough. I put both of those cards into a different iphone 6 and they show up with the same phone and number as before. Was that because I hadent activated them yet?

Sprint and Verizon networks are different because they also use CDMA. I'm guessing you live in an LTE-Only area and haven't had to use evdo or 1x in a while. That's why it is still showing backwards in their system. On Sprint/Verizon you can't just swap SIM cards between devices and expect it to "just work."

The way to fix this:
1. Put the original iPhone SE SIM card back into the SE.
2. Go to the Verizon store and get a new SIM Card for the iPhone 6.
3. Have them do an ESN Swap from the 6 to the SE.
4. Now activate the SE on the new line.
