  1. Questions About Unlocking a Sprint Phone for International Use... The background: My daughter has a good job in the UK. She is currently using an iPhone 4S in the UK. I would like to get her an iPhone 6+ that she could use in the UK. Will the following work? We are customers in good standing (more than a decade) with three lines on an out-of-contract legacy plan (1500 minutes Family Unlimited Data). All three of our phones (two iPhone 5c's and one 5s)...according to our mysprint account page...are eligible for international unlocking...but as of yet have not been unlocked. We have not plans to unlock these three phones. What I would like to do is purchase a 6+...and upgrade (replace) one of our 5c's (in other words, remove the 5c from Sprint service)...use the 6+ for 90 days...ask that it (the 6+) be unlocked...then go back and replace the 6+ (i.e. remove it from the Sprint network) with the 5c that had been taken out of service 90 days previous. So we have two 5c's and one 5s with Sprint now. I'd like to buy a 6+...use it for 90 days...get it unlocked...give it to my daughter as a gift for her to use in the UK...and return at that time to the working devices that we have now with Sprint in the USA (two 5c's and one 5s). Does this make sense? Will this work? Will my daughter be able to activate her Christmas gift (the 6+) in the UK...and use it for as long as she remains in that country (could be 2 years)? And when she returns (permanently) will the 6+ be usable on the Sprint network? Sprint will have unlocked it (the 6+) but it will not be active on our Sprint account...does this matter? Will there be any monthly charge to our three phone Sprint account for her using a fourth phone that is not on the account? I am not trolling here...so real answers are appreciated. Can I get an authoritative opinion on what I'm trying to accomplish? Or at least bring some clarity to my thinking? Thanks much.
