Default Sprint Note 3 on Straight Talk

Pretty straightforward question but I haven't been able to find a clear cut answer from a reliable source. Since the Sprint Note 3 has a sim card slot can I get it unlocked/flash it to work on either Straight Talk or T-Mobile? I don't care if LTE doesn't work as long as 3G does.

Did you just need a regular old unlock or did you have to flash a new radio or something?

Used the S3 & S4 flashing method
