Buying a used unlocked iphone 7

Hello. Looking to purchase a used iphone 7 to replace a 6s. The one I am interested in is 128gb iphone 7 with Sprint. It is fully paid, therefore, I believe, eligible to be unlocked. My question is, will I have any problems using the phone for internet purposes once it is unlocked from Sprint and the current SIM card is popped in? When I talk to folks at ATT stores they say there could be "some problems" when  using the LTE services. I talked to Apple, and they feel there shouldn't be any compatibility issues. What is the take of you folks? I don't want to have quirky issues as this phone is for my 18 yo and she is dependent on her phone!

Hello @CaronJ01!


Thanks for joining us on the Community Forums. Using a device unlocked from another carrier is a great option to have. We are unable to guarantee this device will work on our network. Please click here for the Apple APN Settings. We appreciate your time. Have a wonderful day!

@CaronJ01 You will have no problems. What they told you may be true for android phones, not iphones. The Sprint iPhone 7 is fully compatible with all ATT services, including HD Voice and WiFi calling.
