How to unlock iPhone 8 Sprint

Sprint will only activate devices certified to work on the Sprint network. Sprint cannot unlock phones other from carriers.

Unlocking for Domestic Usage

Domestic SIM Unlock (DSU) refers to enabling the SIM slot of your device to allow you to insert another carrier's SIM card (either domestically or internationally.) Unlocking a device will not necessarily make a device interoperable with another carrier's network. Additionally, unlocking a device may enable some functionality of the device but not all (e.g., an unlocked device may support voice services but not data services when activated on a different network). NOTE: Not all devices are capable of having the SIM slot unlocked.

Sprint will unlock a device from Sprint's network under the following circumstances:
  1. The device is Domestic SIM Unlock capable
  2. The device must be or have been active on the Sprint network for a minimum of 50 days
  3. Any associated Service Agreement, Installment Billing Agreement, or Lease Agreement has been fulfilled including payment in full of any applicable early termination fees or end-of-lease purchase options. Because leased devices are not owned by the user, the end of lease purchase option must be exercised and paid in full before the Domestic SIM unlock is completed.
  4. The associated account is in good standing
  5. The device has not been reported as lost or stolen, associated with fraudulent activity, or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked

For domestic SIM unlockable ("DSU") devices launched after February 2015, Sprint will automatically unlock the device when it becomes eligible. Please note that a domestic SIM unlock will also enable your device to be used internationally using a foreign carrier's SIM card.

For inactive devices, customers must contact Sprint Customer Care to request that their DSU-capable device be unlocked and may have to take steps to perform an over-the-air update to ensure the unlock programming has been relayed to the device. Additional validation may be required to ensure eligibility.

Sprint makes no guaranty that an unlocked device will work on another carrier's network. Whether another carrier will accept and activate a device is subject to that carrier's policies and capabilities. Additionally, Sprint devices which the owner has attempted to reprogram or activate on another carrier's network or otherwise altered from its initial programming or settings may not be able to be reactivated on the Sprint network.

Unlocking for international travel

Sprint customers traveling abroad for a short period of time may be eligible to have their Sprint service provisioned to allow for international roaming. See sprint.com/international for full details.

Current Sprint customers remaining abroad for an extended period of time may want to try to use their Sprint device with a foreign carrier. As a courtesy for our customers, for certain devices, Sprint may be able to unlock the device SIM slot for a foreign carrier's SIM card to be inserted. Customers must meet the following conditions to be eligible:
  1. The device is capable of international SIM unlock
  2. The person requesting the international SIM unlock is a current Sprint customer on an active account that can authenticate as the Account Holder or an Authorized Contact
  3. The applicable device is currently active on a Sprint account and the applicable account has been active for at least 90 days.
  4. The account is in good standing
  5. Each phone number on the account is allowed up to two unlocked devices within a 12 month period.
  6. The device has not been reported as lost or stolen, associated with fraudulent activity, or otherwise flagged as ineligible to be unlocked

For inactive devices, current Sprint customers must contact Sprint Customer Care to request that their device be unlocked and may have to take steps to perform an over-the-air update to ensure the unlock programming has been relayed to the device. Additional validation may be required to ensure eligibility.

Please note that requesting an international unlock will not unlock a DSU-capable device for use with domestic (U.S.) SIMs. When using a foreign carrier's SIM it is important to note that all information, service and support must be provided by that carrier. You remain responsible for any charges to your Sprint account, as well as any charges from the foreign provider. Upon returning to the U.S., you may need to remove the foreign carrier's SIM to register on Sprint's network.

Current Sprint customers who believe they meet these conditions can attempt to unlock their devices by logging on to their sprint.com account, clicking on the "My Account" tab, locating the applicable device from the device list, and choosing the "Unlock device to use int'l SIM" option from the "Manage this device" drop-down menu.

Current Sprint customers unable to unlock their device for international SIM use via sprint.com or customers who prefer to speak to a Care representative can contact Sprint Worldwide Care to request an international SIM unlock. Sprint Worldwide Care can be reached by calling 888-226-7212.
