    Hey guys, my brother has an iPhone 6 plus for sprint and I want him to sell it to me, I have Metro PCS and I would want to use it on Metro. The problem is, he didnt pay his bill and I dont think that he has the phone paid off. So is there any way I can use his phone on Metro if I get it unlocked or maybe flash it? Thanks.

    One, I don't believe Sprint's CDMA phone will work on GSM Metro PCS.
    Two, if your brother has not paid off the phone Sprint will blacklist the IMEI at some point if it has not already.
    Three, if blacklisted, no unlock service will be able to help.
    Four, there is absolutely no such thing as "flashing" an iPhone. That's an Android term and is completely irrelevant and impossible to do with an iPhone.

    In short, I don't think you can do this at all.

    The phone will work fine on MetroPCS if you can get it unlocked. The Sprint version of iPhone 6/6+ is the same hardware that Apple sells as the universal SIM-Free model. However, Sprint won't unlock the phone if it's still attached to an account and 3rd party unlocks are extremely unreliable nowadays, so the phone is useless until that is resolved.
