I bought a two LG v20 sprint from a Craigslist seller. I want to use it with boost or some other

I bought two LG v20s from a Craigs list seller. I want to use them on a prepaid network. Right now boost is looking good however I am being told it may not work. Will it work? Or Are there any steps I need to take to make it work? 

 

Thank you for your time.

you will need to ask this in the Boost forums. they will need to make sure that they are unlocked and if they are compatible with their system...dont see why they wouldnt but you never know.
