    The Sprint iPhone likely can never be unlocked unless Sprint does it.... If there eventually is a way, we will all find out pretty quick I think.

    Unlock your iPhone 5 from smartphoneunlockers.com. I have read a article on their blog, How To Unlock iPhone 5 - Smartphoneunlockers#1 Cell phone Unlock Code Company Smartphoneunlockers.com, may be it will be helpful for you
    This only lists the 5, No mention of the 5s at all.

    CDMA phones DO use SIM cards to access the LTE network. This is why all LTE capable CDMA phones now have SIM card slots.

    This is also why the current iPads will work on GSM/CDMA networks just by swapping sims.
    Wrong, I have a Galaxy S3 on Sprint with LTE and no sim card.

    Most of the newer 4G LTE phones on Sprint have UICC chips, they aren't quite SIM cards though. They are only used to get the LTE service. Even if you unlock the device, it still can't use GSM locally. Some don't have the hardware to do actual GSM at all.

    You are actually the wrong one. The Sprint S3 has an embedded non-removable SIM card for LTE access inside the phone. Go to Settings, About Phone and see your ESN/MEID, embedded ICCiD (SIM Card) number amongst other info.

    I believe that by February 11 2015. Sprint has to unlock iphone or any phone. To be used here in the us.

    Sprints unlocking policy appears to apply only to postpaid customers. I am a prepaid customer. Am I eligible to have my device unlocked?
    Neither Sprint nor its prepaid affiliates (Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile, and Assurance Wireless) currently unlock devices for prepaid customers. However, in accordance with the Unlocking Commitment, Sprint and its prepaid affiliates are working to create new policies and procedures in order to unlock prepaid devices, or to provide the information necessary to unlock the devices, after certain eligibility requirements to be established are met. Consistent with the Unlocking Commitment, Sprint and its prepaid affiliates will implement these new policies and procedures no later than February 11, 2015.

    Yeah, not driving business to other carriers is logical, but it's about the fact that once you fulfill your contract agreement or pay the device off in full, it is your device and you should be able to do with it as you please, including resell it, use it on another carrier, etc., . . .

    I have sprint for about 2 years now. I recently went to south america and realized that i could have unlocked my phone and use one of the service providers there. Since i was in south america no way to call sprint i went online and initiated a chat with their international services. I advised that i was already in south america and i would like to use one of the local phone companies using GSM.. They issued a unlock request and within 4 hours i got an email saying my phone has been unlocked. Here's the link where you can chat with the international service dept.. Live Chat

    FYI - You can also call by pressing *2 from your sprint phone and ask for that department prior to your trip. Or if you don't want to wait on the phone the chat service is great!

    Recently i bought an iPhone 5S in Greece..! When i tried to start use it with my locally SIM card the iPhone wasn't work at all! As i searched by the iPhone's IMEI i realized that the iPhone was purchased in USA from Sprint telephone company. I am trying the last week to find a solution to unlock my phone to use here in my country! Please guys..if you know an officially way to unlock it please give me a mail with the instructions..!
    I find that i have to pay from 99 to 105 pounds to Sprint to unlock it..!!! OMG!!

    Even with an unlocked iPhone 5S, it will depend on the LTE bands and frequencies used by your phone company in Greece and the iPhone 5S you have. The iPhone 5S sold by Sprint doesn't have the LTE band 7, that the iPhone 5S sold for Greece has. Chances are, this won't a big problem, though you should check with your phone company for compatibility to avoid and disappointments.

    Thank you very much for your response!

    My iPhone is the Gold one! Thanks God! And can works on Greek networks! The point is that i cannot unlock it! I think that the Sprint company can't unlock the iPhone for inside use (USA) but can unlock it for use in Europe! Am i right or not?

    Sprint doesn't unlock phones.
    Yes they do, if you have been a customer in good standing for over a year. I unlock every single iphone i get/upgrade

    also, the phones unlocked by sprint will not work on any US carriers besides sprint. Will work on any international GSM carrier after they unlock it.

    I have been with Sprint for 17 years and have had no problems with them at all. I have had 3 dropped calls in that time which I feel is quite acceptable. I have four devices on my account and had never had a problem. Thanks

    There is a way to have my iPhone unlocked so I can find a cheaper plan. But getting it done is the trick.

    If the contract has been fulfilled, isn't Sprint required to unlock the phone at the customer's request?
