Default [Q] Does the Sprint Nexus 5 work on other carriers?

Is the Nexus 5 from Sprint any different than the Nexus 5 from Google Play? Will the Sprint Nexus 5 work on other carriers? Is it unlocked? What are the differences?

Sprint Nexus 5 is the same phone you get from Google Play itself (D820). you can use it on t-mobile and at&t

there are only 4 versions of Nexus 5, all unlocked (technically 2 models)

D820 16GB, D820 32GB (North America)
D821 16GB, D821 32GB (Int'l)

ROM/Radio/Baseband are totally interchangable on all models (*except that for the 32GB ones, if you reflash stock img, you'll need to format data in recovery to get 32GB showing instead of 16GB)
Current Device:
Oppo Find 5 - experimental kernel
