Buying a new iPhone 4S, using it on Ting, unlock code needed for international travel?

Hello,

I was hoping a Sprint representative can help me.  I am planning on purchasing a few new iPhone 4S, to be used on Ting (which is under Sprint).  Will I encounter any problems?  I've been reading that if it works on Sprint, it'll work on Ting.  But I would feel more comfortable hearing it from Sprint.  Also, I travel abroad several times each year.  So, I would be using their local GSM network.  Will I have any problems with this?  Would I need to request an unlock code every time I travel?  Or can I get a permanent unlock code?  Again, these are new phones.  They were never used with Sprint.  I do not have an account with Sprint. 

I hope someone can please give me a definitive answer for my situation. 

Thank you very much!
