You can check the bands and frequencies for SPRINT here:

For the sim unlock it is up to "firewater" compatibility, since you need to S-OFF your device first.

Regarding compatibility with firewater, your question should be: How can I make sure that my device will be supported by firewater?

The answer: You cant! Its just a matter of luck for the moment.


There are alot of people who successfully S-OFF their devices with firewater, and there are also unlucky persons like me, who cant (i got 2 devices that i cannot S-OFF).

There is also a bounty thread for people which cannot S-OFF:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2733870


If SIM unlocking is your concern, I suggest you to buy it unlocked (yeah i know the price is higher).

For the time being there is no provider offering SIM Unlock for Sprint. Believe me, since I have a SPRINT standard M8 device which i cant SIM unlock for the moment.

Thank you for the information..I'm an htc lover...i can buy it factory unlocked in about the same price...but i want that version...i really liked the color combination and what h/k addition offers...i know that i can port the h/k software to another m8 but i like the whole package...it's unique....i live in Greece....bought my friend some months ago an already sim unlocked sprint htc one m7 and it's working fine..So to sum up..if i got it...it's not 100% that i would be able to sim unlock it..... Also i saw on the gsmarena on the lte frequencies sprint version support LTE 800 / 1900 / 2600 my carrier lte frequencies are 1800 MHz, 2600 MHz...... so i should be able to have lte at 2600MHz?

Im not quite sure if the LTE will work flawlessly since usually the antenna is optimized for the specific carrier. Sorry i am not sure about it...
