Unlock an unactivated Sprint iPhone 4s?
I've purchased a pre owned iPhone 4s direct from Sprint. I'm looking to use this phone in England, Belgium and Turkey in a couple weeks. I'm going to be over seas for 5 weeks and would rather not have to activate with sprint and pay 2 months of service that I won't be using.
Any methods to unlock it without first activating it so that I can use it with international sims or do I just need to return it?

Honestly, you picked the wrong phone.
If you want to use a phone worldwide, you should have bought a GSM phone which can be unlocked easily.
A CDMA 4S can be unlocked using a sim interposer, but some/many do not work on iOS6 firmware and those unlocks are sometimes unreliable.
You can use Google/eBay to search for a grey market vendor to unlock a CDMA phone and may find one.

Factory Unlock iPhone 4S / 5 Service!

The factory unlock for sprint iPhone is very pricey, it isn't worth it either considering that the iPhone is CDMA. The server I use to do factory unlocks currently has a "beta" testing to unlock Sprint iPhones. Pretty expensive to do... 130 up just for the factory unlock for the sprint iphone 4s.. :|

I'm pretty sure when the Sprint 4S was released, it came unlocked for international use. They sent out a carrier update a few months later that locked it again, but I'm pretty sure they also issued a statement saying that if you are a customer in good standing, you can just call in and have it unlocked. With that being said, I'm not sure if you are a Sprint customer, but there is no reason that they should deny your request to unlock it if you aren't a customer.
