From next year, we might be able to use our Sprint device on other US carriers.

Tip us?

Starting next year, you might be able to take your Sprint device to be used on another US carrier.
This article from Phonearena says its for newer devices coming in February 2015, but hopefully they might include ours too.

You can already unofficially unlock your SIM and use it on T-Mobile, AT&T or their MVNOs. Unless Verizon changes their policy on activating non-Verizon phones the situation for our devices is the same as it will be in February '15...

Unofficial method is there, but now we dont have to mess with any files if they include older devices as well.

They wont do it so dont get your hopes up. Not to be a killjoy but if they intended to allow unlocking on older devices they would have said so. All info from sprint on this says "devices purchased after" Feb 2015.
Sprint LG G2 >> Current Owner >> Stock, Debloated, Rooted, TWRP'ed
Sprint HTC One >> Current Owner >> Stock, Unrooted (Till Kit Kat Comes)
Sprint Moto Photon >> Current Owner >> Rooted, Docked, Converted to XMBC & Android Media Box
TMO HTC G2 >> Past Owner >> Imo, The best Phone ever made design wise.

Hoping they might, but guess you may be right.

As long as the phone can use gsm/cdma like the Nexus 5 then that's great news!
