Hey guys, my dad is looking to pay off his iPhone Xr from Sprint and ask them to unlock it for him. My question is after sprint unlocks it will I be able for him to get his phone to work on another network. I've never had a carrier phone and instead buy all my phones factory unlocked. Hope to hear back

Hi & Welcome to iMore

I pretty sure you should be able to use it once it’s unlocked, but I’m not too familiar with Sprint devices. Hopefully, someone with a little more knowledge will chime in soon!

I’m doing the same thing with Verizon. I had them verify my IMEI number to ensure I could. Now all I’m waiting on is for T-Mobile to send me the carrier unlock email.

I'm new to this whole thing. Im trying to get my Dad and sister to join me, but I have no clue on the carriers unlocking their iphones. I assume T-mobile could do it since they own Sprint now

I called 611 with T-Mobile. They verified that the phone was paid off and told me to look out for an email in 24 hours with instructions on how unlock it.
