Sorry for a very broad question, but I recently moved from tmobile to sprint, never used a cdma network. Could I buy a second hand Samsung s7 or any other android phone, locked on sprint, with a clean imei; then call up sprint and ask them to unlock it, if I ever want to travel or switch to another network? Or is this only up to the original owner?
