OK my Buddy bought a note 3 on craigslist ... Through some digging it used to be in a T-Mobile contract that wasn't honored... He is with sprint and wants to use it there... is it Sim locked it... if not could he just get a a card from sprint and call and switch it over or is there more to do.. Any advice would be appreciated..

I think it only works one way. You can use the Sprint version on T-Mobile, but not the T-Mobile version on Sprint. His best bet is to unlock the phone and head over to AT&T or an MVNO like Straight Talk.
