If you ever get unhappy with Sprint services, you can easily switch to other networks without having to ditch your current device

If you have been a customer of Sprint then you sure know that you have never experienced much flexibity and there arent many options available for unlocking the SIM card slot. And even if you can do it, then you are forever limited to the service on foreign networks. However, being a Sprint user, you can expect something better out of the future as the company brings more flexibility into play. Sprint has made an announcement stating that it will allow the unlocking of phone's SIMs for American use, starting with those launched on or after February 11th, 2015.

This will allow you to make use of the SIM based features, for instance the LTE data, on AT&T, T-Mobile and other US providers. But you will have to make sure that you device supports the right level of frequencies. This added freedom is also being offered by the prepaid brands of Sprint which include Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.

 

This announcement does not come as much of a surprise when Sprint had committed to unlocking phones as part of the CTIA's Consumer Code. But this is still a huge advancement on the company's part and a big step taken towards having real choices among US carriers. So if you ever get tired or unhappy with Sprint services, you can easily to switch to other networks without having to ditch your current device.
