    I believe Sprint has a policy and software/firware, that prevents their iPhone's from working on any other US carrier.

    I recently tried to put a Sprint SIM from a 5c into a TMo 6s and it did not work, although I have no idea if either iPhones were unlocked...

    All other iPhones 5 on (providing they are unlocked and most are) will work on all other carriers, BUT Sprint is funny. There IS an exception for carrier financed phones which the old carrier will block once you default, UNLESS you properly pay off the finance agreement, or the new carrier does which is sometimes the case when they take a trade. It is also possible since the iPhone 6 to purchase a completely unlocked iPhone from Apple which will work on all 4 carriers, HOWEVER I have heard that sometimes Sprint will give you gruff activating them, BUT ultimately they have to do it. (These phones must be purchased or financed directly with Apple) From the Apple site......

    About the SIM-free iPhone
    The SIM-free iPhone comes without a wireless contract commitment or carrier financing. It doesn’t come with a nano-SIM card for iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. And because it’s unlocked, it isn’t tied to one carrier, so you can get a nano-SIM from any supported carrier worldwide, such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, or Sprint in the United States.

    Purchasing a SIM-free iPhone means you will not qualify for the lower iPhone price associated with a contract or a carrier installment plan.

    If you don’t want a multiyear service contract, or if you prefer to use a local carrier when traveling abroad, the SIM-free iPhone is the best choice.

    For details on LTE network support, please see Apple - iPhone 6 - View countries with supported LTE networks..

    Credit check may be required; must be 18 or older. A SIM-free, unlocked iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus may be activated on supported GSM and CDMA carrier networks.
