Their 3G is horrible. Its pointless if you can't use their LTE network, which you can't on a 4S and on Virgin. He should stick with At&t if he wants a 4S. Should just upgrade to a 5 IMO.

If you use an AT&T Net10 SIM you can use it without unlocking. You will need to update your APN settings for the data connection to your phone by going to www.net10sim.com from the phone.

Don't need to unlock, but I would unlock for added resell value. Since the APN settings are not accessible on the ATT iPhone unles you use a t-mobile or foreign SIM card. I posted a link to where you can direct your phone to install the APN settings for Net 10 AT&T and T-Mobile. You will have to do. It on wifi.

I forgot to say it, but you have to bring your own Verizon iPhone. Which pretty much means buying used, so that may or may not be your cup of tea. Android is an option. Some flash, some don't. I think the SG3 does, but the Nexus doesn't. You have to check with the dealer. Similar to unlocks, the flash can be done over the phone. Knowing all your options helps you make a more informed choice.

You need to try Sprint/Virgin yourself before you decide against it. Go to one of their stores and test.

You have several options of where to take your iPhone. Refer to this thread

Also I wouldn't be too concerned with AT&T unlocking my iPhone as you can get it unlocked for just $2 online.
