iPhone replacement question


Recommended Posts

My daughter's iPhone XR has finally died and needs replacement.  Its going to be a while until she can save enough for that.  We have Sprint and the sim card inside says Sprint.  Are we simply able to find an older iPhone 8 or something along those lines, stick the sim card in it, and away we go?  Or how does this work?  I think I can find an older phone out there.... how do I get it to work on our plan? TIA!

Ya, if you’re on Sprint, make sure the phone is a Sprint/Verizon model with CDMA. You may also need to make sure it’s carrier unlocked.


If you’re buying used from someone, make sure you can go through the whole activation process on the phone and that it’s not locked to someone AppleID still (just doing a factory reset may not do this).
