Jbot81 - Hi, I'm Isandy from Sprint Social Care. Sent me a PM by going to my name and selecting "sent a message".
Hello I have a device that is paid off and I'm trying to give it to my son for christmas but it seems to be locked, I have checked everything is paid off and I have had service on it for some time. anyone able to help? thank you
Hi appz24! I can help you out with your request. In order to unlock the device, there are certain requirements that it needs to meet, among the most important are: That the device is unlock capable. That it is fully paid, meaning that it cannot have any pending contract nor balance. Never has been reported lost or stolen. The account last associated with the device must be current. To get information about other requirements, please visit: Sprint.com/unlock. If your equipment meets the requirements, we can proceed with your request. If you have been a Sprint customer, I'd need some info. Please send me a Private Message as soon as you have a chance.
We are in a similar situation here. My mother purchased an unlocked iphone from apple several months ago. Now I'm helping her switch to another carrier and we are getting the error message "SIM not supported" I'm told that's because the device is still locked to Sprint? Can you please help us unlock this phone?
Hey @helius! Was this phone active on Sprint? Or did you buy it directly from apple without activating it on the Sprint network?
I'm not sure how long the phone was active on Sprint. When my mom made the purchase earlier this year, it was for an unlocked iphone.
@helius, The device must be or have been active on the Sprint network for a minimum of 50 days. I can check if the phone is eligible to be unlocked, I'll send you a Private Message to assist you.
Thanks behnamhp_695 for taking the time to express your gratitude. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend. 😉
