ive seen alot of information about unlocking att iphones but nothing for sprint phones. are there sprint unlocking services like what unlock_fusion offers for att (gsm)phones?
sorry for being uneducated.
i only ask because i plan to sell this iphone 5 when the iphone 5s comes out. im guessing i can only sell it to another sprint customer?
i recently sold my 2 iphone 4s on craigslist for 250$ each. it took all of 30 minutes. i walked into best buy and bought iPhone 5's for 250$ each. almost a clean swap. my "plan" is to sell the iphone 5 for 450 to 500$ and only have to come out of pocket 250 to 300$ for the iphone 5s (non-subsidized) phone price.
Hate to tell you but I doubt you're going to get that much for the Sprint iPhone 5. It has the lowest resale value of all the carriers and most used ones are selling for around $350-360 on eBay before fees ~$310 after. Value will probably drop at least another $50-75 immediately after the 5S is announced. Unless you can get extremely lucky to find someone on Craigslist who will pay big bucks for one.
But it's only an international unlock. They will NOT under ANY circumstance unlock it for domestic use. There are a lot of unethical people (not the OP) who are selling Sprint iPhones as "unlocked" right now because they know buyers will assume it's unlocked completely. This is why there are a lot of Sprint iPhones being sold on craigslist and eBay.Call sprint, they'll unlock it for you if you're a sprint subscriber.
See above! ^^Call Sprint, I'm not sure what there "terms" are. But I think you have to be in good standing.
If you want it unlocked for international use before selling it yes. Otherwise, the buyer can do that as long as they are a Sprint customer. But again, the unlock is international only. Unless the seller is going out of the country having it unlocked for international use only really does them no good.do i have to do this before i sell it to another sprint customer?
