Good morning @Justtaylor14. I am happy to help you get the iPhone 6 added to the system. I will need some information so I'll send you a private message requesting what I need. Also, I just want to let you know that the process can take 7-10 days.

I too would like some help activating an unlocked iphone 7 plus. Chat and in store were not helpful.

Good afternoon. What did they do? Did they check the IMEI for you?

Yes. They did check. No one can explain why it cannot be added to sprint database.

Re: Adding unlocked iPhone IMEI to Sprint database

usually its due to either money still owed, still locked to another carrier or its an international version of the phone.

 

for what its worth devices usually take a couple days to get added to their database..its not a right then and there type of deal.

The reasons listed in Fireguy's message are correct. But let's look at it and see what we find. I'm going to send you a private message to get the IMEI.

Re: Adding unlocked iPhone IMEI to Sprint database

I might have this exact problem. I have an unlocked iPhone 6S (A1688). I purchased it from Apple Store overseas. When I check the IMEI on Sprint website it says “Sorry, but this phone can't be activated with Sprint service.”

 

How can I have my phone’s IMEI added to Sprint database?

 

Thanks
