    Can my Verizon iPhone 7 or SE work on the Sprint network?

    Sprint's network became good in my town a couple of months ago because they installed three new towers in my town. According to my friends who have Sprint, the 4G speeds have been quite good. (usually around 10 to 15mbps)

    Thanks!

    Technically it has the cdma and lte bands available to be used on Sprints network and its unlocked.
    Not sure Sprints policy on it when it comes to accepting non Sprint devices and activating them on their network.

    You need to get a new sim card to work for that phone I believe. I went there a few months ago to aquire how to use a Google pixel XL phone that I have.

    Yes, your Sprint iPhone 7 and SE will work fine.

    I bought an AT&T iPhone SE (same as Verizon model) early last year because that was the only model the Apple Store had at the time and paid full price so it came unlocked. It worked fine on Verizon and Sprint for me. The only thing you don't get is band 41, which is needed for the fastest speeds Sprint offers, but will otherwise provide the same coverage as a Sprint iPhone SE.

    Now I have a Verizon iPhone 7 that I use on Verizon and Sprint. I swap SIM cards regularly. This is the exact same model Sprint offers, so it will work exactly the same.
