Only way is to use the CDMA Gevey Sim for the iPhone 4S. I'm not sure if they have one that works on iOS 6 though. You would need to be on 5.1.1 or lower and jailbroken.

You cannot.
The original owner either reported it lost or stolen or never paid his phone bill.
That's something he will have to handle and call up customer service for that sprint iphone to ever be removed from the bad esn database and then ask for an international unlock.
In other words you're out of luck. Just sell it if you can, its worthless to you besides as an ipod touch or for parts.

He meant you can sell it like an ipod touch. (No data connection, except Wifi and no phone calls)

You CAN. Just not on CDMA.

If it's on ios 5 just get this:

Actually there is this too for ios 6, even cheaper:

Check if they support your carrier, the list is on the bottom.

At least Sprint and VZ block the handset. AT&T willfully does nothing if your handset is stolen. Even when they see that someone else has it activate on their account.
