Sprint phones

  • CDMA carrier
  • Uses 800MHz and 1900MHz spectrums primarily (bands 26 and 25), and 2.5 GHz for Sprint Spark (band 41)
  • Does allow devices to be used on selected Sprint resellers such as Ting
  • Phones will not work with Verizon
  • LTE devices and iPhones may work with GSM networks, although service possibly limited
  • Still not an 'unlock friendly' carrier
Sprint has recently launched a 'Bring Your Own Device' campaign for selected MVNOs (smaller wireless providers who operate on its network).
This means that some (not all) Sprint devices will be able to be used on either Ting or Boost Mobile (unfortunately, Sprint's prepaid MVNO, Virgin Mobile, doesn't accept phones from any other carrier - you'll have to buy a Virgin Mobile handset to sign up for service).
Outside of carriers on the Sprint network, taking your Sprint phone to Verizon Wireless is more or less impossible. We've heard of people trying, but so far no success stories.
If you wish to take a Sprint device to T-Mobile or AT&T, you may be able to do so with LTE-capable devices and Apple iPhones...but there are no guarantees. Some handsets sold by Sprint are marked as 'global' phones, meaning they are also have room for a SIM card despite running on Sprint's CDMA network.
As confusing as it is, if you can get your Sprint phone unlocked, there is a chance you can have it activated for service on a GSM network - but you'll need to speak with your new carrier and ask whether they'll accept the make and model of your handset.
Even if you do get the all-clear, getting your phone unlocked is the tricky part. While Sprint are happy to unlock phones for international use (provided the device is paid off and the customer's account is in good standing), the company isn't as enthusiastic about unlocking devices when customers wish to take them to another carrier. There's more info about the unlocking process - and what a headache it can be - here.
And if you do manage to get your Sprint phone unlocked and find a carrier that agrees to let you bring it on to their network, it's unlikely that the phone will work in quite the same way as it did on Sprint, due to the differences in carrier networks we've discussed above.

I want to unlock my sprint 9630 blackberry


Hi, it's possible to unlock the network of your BlackBerry phone on Fastgsm.com. But it works only on GSM devices and if your phone is Sprint, it's probably CDMA and won't work on GSM network.

CAN I USE MY SPRINT BLACKBERRY CURVE 8330 WITH BOOST MOBILE


Possibly since Boost & Sprint are CDMA carriers (AT&T & T-Mobile are GSM carriers), but it may need to be reprogrammed by Boost in order to work. Most times, you need to hack into the phone to unlock it.

WANT TO UNLOCK RAZORV3 TO WORK WITH SPRINT


the only reason that its not working is because Sprint locks their SIM cards so that you cannot use them on any other carriers. but it is possible. all you have to do is take the phone to AT&T and have them flash the phone to AT&T. another reason it won't work is because sprint is CDMA service, and AT&T is iDEN network and GSM. they aren't compatible. so you are unable to use the sprint SIM card in the AT&T phone. i am sorry.
