US carriers are blacklisted from Sprint and Verizon iPhone 4S even if you have it unlocked for use internationally. You need a SIM interposer like Gevey Ultra S, R-SIM, etc.
Only problem is in the case of the Gevey Ultra S, it only works with iOS 5.1.1 or older according to their site. I use an R-SIM III I bought from eBay for $4 shipped. Works perfectly, but I think it also is limited to iOS 5.1.1.
There is one called GPP Turbo that claims to work with 6.0 and 6.0.1.

I have 2 sprint locked 4S phones running jailbroken 6.1.2 . I unlocked them using "New GPP" that I got from iphonerepairmiamibeach on ebay. They both now work on straight talk (AT&T) flawlessly.
They claim to work even if the phone is not jailbroken. But I have not tested that assertion.
I used tetherme to allow editing of the apn settings. And had to edit some carrier bundles to enable facetime and iMessage for the phone number. I mentioned my method around page 54 of the "how to check if you can unlock" sticky thread.

Nice. There is hope in life!! I have jail broken mine as well so I'm not worried to much about whether it works if not jail broken. I am however curious if it matters if the phone has a bad MEID #

Hey, I use GPP 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.1, 6.1.2 on Verizon and Sprint i4S.
Let me know if you need any help. but IT WORKS!

I ordered the rsim 7 4 days ago because I am an idiot and didn't see the 7+
Either way their site claims that the 7 supports unlock & activation on 6.1.2 so I should be ok.
Also instead of using ifunbox can't I just SSH and edit the bundles that way to solve the imessage and facetime issue?
Is a bad MEID going to prevent me from being able to activate my phone with AT&T or Straight Talk??
Last but certainly not least by any means, I am curious which sim card to get. Can I just go to AT&T and get one from them?? I'm going to assume that its pay month to month regardless where the sim comes from?
Hopefully with the answers to these questions I can be next to post a success story!!
