Has anyone actually tried to put a NON SPRINT SIM into a sprint iPhone 5s??

Anyone ?

Patience

 

Anyway, I don't own an iphone but I would assume that the sim will be locked out of the box and to unlock the sim will require a call to sprint tech support.

its not a sim card like you are using it its a uicc universal integrated circuit card its for lte.  if you take it out your lte will stop working, you cant get it to work on another network.

Can I buy a UICC at any Walmart, Best Buy, or other carrier store?

If you need to replace your UICC, it MUST be Sprint UICC compatible with your device. Sprint stores typically would carry this replacement item. You cannot buy a generic SIM card and attempt to use it with your phone. Additionally, other carrier UICCs cannot be used with our Sprint devices. Sprint UICCs also cannot be used on other carrier devices (e.g. to enable LTE on their equipment).

Thats what comes with the phone and yes if you remove it lte won't work just like on the One and the Gs4 but all these devices are also world phones which means that you can get it unlocked to use on other gsm networks provided the frequencies are supported.  Again I don't own an iphone but I can tell you that my sprint htc One is sim unlocked and I gotten it to work on tmobile just fine, I don't see how the iphone would be any different.

Thanks for the replies but I'm not looking for someone to tell me what I know and can read myself. I'm looking for someone who has actually tried it themselves and rebooted or toggled data etc to see what happens.

 

since its not a sim card like you mean it its not possible how bout since you dont want to read the answer then go out and try it

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
