Sprint iPhone 6 on another network

Can Sprints iPhone 6 run on another US network after being unlocked?

I used to have an iPhone 5 on sprint. To save money I wanted to try to use the existing phone (unlocked) onto AT&T, went into the store and the rep told me it wouldn't work on their network. T-mobile, as well said the phone wouldn't work on their network. Ultimately, ended up buying new phones from T-Mobile and trading in my old devices

I guess sprint is the only phone company who uses a completely different network or whatever that doesn't allow to use their unlocked phones on different carriers... Just my experience I've had with them in the past.

Won't be able to use it on another carrier intangible into this problem with my 5s when I switched to Verizon. But my i6 from Verizon I was able to use on us cellular (another CDMA network)

No. Sprint iPhones can't be unlocked for other US carriers. You can look at sprints website and it will tell you that in the FAQ about phone unlocking.

Can I unlock it with turbo sim

You can try, but with new legislation passed last year, carriers are supposed to unlock it for you. Also, like karenkcoulter said above, the Sprint model is missing LTE bands so you may only get 3G if you switch to another GSM carrier.

Sprint and Verizon use CDMA and everyone else uses GSM but the sprint IPhone 5s and 6 can be used on other networks you just have to be out of contract or by your phone from Apple at retail price

The sprint iPhone 6 is th exactly the same as the international one so it will work on LTE and HSPA + 41 on ATT and T-Mobile

The Sprint iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is the same model as the unlocked one. The SAME EXACT model. It's not "missing" LTE bands. It has the most LTE bands of any OF THE iPhone 6 models. The A1586 is the TRUE "WORLD" Phone.

However Sprint will not unlock you for domestic use... That's the reason it can't be used on AT&T and Verizon not because of LTE bands.

Why would Apple use the Sprint version as the unlocked version of it was "missing" stuff?!?
