    Default unlocking Iphone 4S
    Hello, I have not posted here in along time.

    Questions, I have Sprint Service, If I call them, and tell them I am leaving the country, and I want to use it out of country. Will they unlock my phone.
    I have the Iphone 4S
    If so then can I put any Att Sim card in my phone, will it work.
    I want to cancel my Sprint Service, and go back to Att, but I need to pay $320 to end my contract, and get the new Iphone 5.
    I think I can sell my 4S for $350 unlocked on CL.
    It will still cost me less, then paying 649 for the Iphone 5.
    Also I can get rid of sprints super slow data speeds im getting .6 to 1mbps on my 4S.
    I need faster.

    Thank you for your help.

    Will they unlock my Iphone, and will it work on Att network or any GSM network?

    i believe sprint is a CDMA / EvDO carrier. so unlocking it will not work on ATT which is a GSM carrier.

    I believe your right, but I thought the 4S had both chips inside it, for GSM and CDMA, but I could be completely wrong.

    I have a Sprint iphone 4s. I had a gray market unlock done. It works great now. Upgraded IOS twice without a problem. Used it in the USA and overseas. The website that unlocked it no longer lists Sprint. ??? Maybe give them an email. The 4s CDMA does have a sim card slot. (World phone) The 4 CDMA does NOT.

    i did more research and raderson79 is correct. the sprint/versizon iphone 4s does support GSM. so, unlocking it will work with ATT.

    I spoke with Sprint, and they said plug your phone to I tunes and do a restore and it will be unlocked.
    I then asked them if I go to another country and pop a sim card in will it work they said yes.
    I called the t-mobile store here in cali, and asked them will it work and he was unsure, but they did say I could go in and try with a sim card they have instore.
    So It seams like it will work but im not sure.

    I think Sprint will only unlock it for non USA providers. That is why I used a gray market service.
