Sprint payoff???

Is it possible to pay off both our phones that were purchased last year, have them domestic SIM unlocked, and move our phones over to T-Mobile??? I ask this because Sprint does not offer any add on data plan for smart watches and now T-Mobile offers a employee discount of 22%. Thanks

Sorry they are 6s and 6s Plus. So as long as I pay them off I can get out of my contract which has 18 months left?

If they're on installment, then you don't have a contract. So you can leave whenever you wish.

Not installment, I on old plan and did two year upgrade a few months back.

Oh, if you did a two year contract upgrade, then you need to honor your contract or pay the Early termination fee.

 

Best option would be to go into a Sprint store and talk with a rep about your options.

So just pay the ETF and these 2 iphones will be unlocked and ready for use with T-Mobile?? Seems way to easy but that would be awesome if true.

If you pay the ETF then you are free to go, I have no clue on the unlocking.  It might be a waiting period before Sprint will do the unlock.  According to the Sprint site on unlocking (i bolded the 3 lines that might be your catches).  I'm not a Sprint employee, just going off from available info.

 

Unlocking for Domestic Usage

Sprint will unlock a device from Sprint's network under the following circumstances:

  • The device is Domestic SIM Unlock capable
  • The device must be or have been active on the Sprint network for a minimum of 50 days
  • Any associated Service Agreement, Installment Billing Agreement, or Lease Agreement has been fulfilled including payment in full of any applicable early termination fees or end-of-lease purchase options. Because leased devices are not owned by the user, the end of lease purchase option must be exercised and paid in full before the Domestic SIM unlock is completed.
  • The associated account is in good standing
  • The device has not been reported as lost or stolen, associated with fraudulent activity, or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked

For domestic SIM unlockable ("DSU") devices launched after February 2015, Sprint will automatically unlock the device when it becomes eligible. Please note that a domestic SIM unlock will also enable your device to be used internationally using a foreign carrier's SIM card.

For inactive devices, customers must contact Sprint Customer Care to request that their DSU-capable device be unlocked and may have to take steps to perform an over-the-air update to ensure the unlock programming has been relayed to the device. Additional validation may be required to ensure eligibility.

Sprint makes no guaranty that an unlocked device will work on another carrier's network. Whether another carrier will accept and activate a device is subject to that carrier's policies and capabilities. Additionally, Sprint devices which the owner has attempted to reprogram or activate on another carrier's network or otherwise altered from its initial programming or settings may not be able to be reactivated on the Sprint network.

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
