Default [Q] Sprint Galaxy S4 with stock 4.3 and MK2 baseband

I just recently acquire myself a Sprint Galaxy S4. It is not rooted. It is running stock android 4.3 with the L720VPUEMK2 baseband. My question is can I unlock this phone to use on US gsm carriers like Tmobile and AT&T? I don't want to buy any unlock code from ebay because those codes only allow it to unlock to use for overseas. Have I had a choice I would've just bought a Tmobile, AT&T or verizon galaxy s4, but they were too expensive. Can anyone help me?

Pls read next time, anyways no you can't as of right now because only works with mdc or mdl basebands and no way to downgrade right now...mf9 and above you can international unlock tho

Darn it!!! So what you're basically saying is that even if I rooted the phone and use a rom that supports MDC or MDL basebands I still can't unlock it to use on domestic GSM carriers? If that's the case if i'm reading correctly then I guess it's time to put up the phone for sale on Swappa.

I think that because you can't downgrade to MDC/MDL baseband you can't unlock it in domestic GSM carrier at least currently.
The knox in bootloader denied you to downgrade to MDC/MDL baseband.
So either wait to get a solution or sell it.
