Why to unlock your Sprint USA iPhone?

There are many reasons that Sprint USA unlocking is useful to Sprint users:

  • Use any SIM-Card/Mobile Network you want Worldwide

  • Travel to any country you want and avoid roaming fees

  • Change between local carriers with better pricing/signal/offers

Methods to Unlock Sprint USA Carrier – Software and Hardware

Not guaranteed methods to Unlock Sprint USA Carrier:

These would be the Software and Hardware methods.


They are marked as not guaranteed because they only work on specific iPhone models (iPhone 2G/3G/3Gs) and on specific iOS/Baseband versions (Up to 6.1.6 iOS version). Apple managed to secure all its iPhones and iOS (from iPhone 4 and above – from iOS 7 and above), and it is impossible for those methods to support Sprint USA Carrier. So, if you want to Unlock Sprint USA Carrier and you have iPhone 4 or newer, then this method will not work for you!


Those methods, are taking advantage iOS and Hardware exploits, and tricks the mechanism that allows or blocks the use of other SIM-Cards. The Advanced and Sophisticated iOS and Hardware of the latest iDevices and iOS, have already patched those exploits, which means that the above methods will not support your iPhone! Also, many people reported that the hardware methods failed to unlock their iPhones and also experienced low voice quality and out-of-the blue reboots!

      Hello Luis,

      There is a myth around the Sprint USA Network. Most people say that even if you unlock it you will not be able to use it with other Mobile Networks. This is not entirely true! There are some cases that you will not be able to use your Sprint USA iPhone to other USA Mobile networks.

      If your iPhone is blacklisted, then even if you unlock it, you will not be able to use it inside the USA (With any Mobile Network). The only way to know 100% that your Sprint USA iPhone can be used by other US Mobile Networks, is to contact with T-Mobile and ask them. Make sure to know your iPhone’s model so you can help them to provide you a quick and accurate answer!

      After knowing all the above, you will be able to proceed with an iPhone Unlock service which supports your device.

      Hey Dered,

      Since your iPhone does not have a SIM-Card, it will not have an IMEI number. This means that it cannot be unlocked with the Official IMEI Method.

      Try contacting Sprint USA Network, they might be able to help you!

  6. Jake says:

    I reported my iphone 6 plus lost because it really was and I got the replacement phone, paid the deductible but then I found the phone. The insurance company wants me to turn it in without refunding the deductible paid amount but I find it unfair. My question is, can I unlock or free the iphone 6 plus and still use it under my Sprint US account?

    Thank you.

I know my IMEI number, icloud lock and phone passwords . for un locking how much it will cost and time it will take? and it can be done from India while phone with me in India

  11. prokash Deb says:

    My iphone 5c carrier 24.0 is network locked and it is blacklisted. how much it would cost to unlock it. it has an updated version 9.3.4.

  12. Makis Kimas ( User Karma: 11 ) says:

    Hi, Daniel!

    First of all, I believe that Cricket is a CDMA Network.
    I am saying that because a Premium IMEI Unlock Service will unlock your iPhone 6 to all GSM Networks (so if Cricket is CDMA then nope)

    Keep in mind that if your iPhone is Blacklisted because it was stolen or lost then, it will still be unlocked to all GSM networks but you won’t be able to use it with any Carrier in USA, Canada, Mexico & Puerto Rico!

    I Hope I’ve helped

  13. Richard says:

    The issue I have, is that I switched over to Sprint, and traded in a(n) iPhone 4s for this iPhone 6s Plus. When I received my bill it was outrageous, so I called Sprint and turned it off. They asked me to return phone, and I said if they give me back my phone plus the deposit. They refused too, so I kept phone. Can I unlock this phone and use with AT&T?

  14. Juan says:

    I have an Iphone 7 plus still under contract with Sprint and I just dont want to wait all that time to have it unlock, I travel sometimes and just dont want to pay the roaming fees, can I unlocked with you? If yes, can Sprint locked it again? Will it stay unlock? Can I still used with Sprint without any issues?

    Thanks for your time
