Within the past month I picked up an HTC One M8 on sprint, huge mistake. Sprint service never comes through the tri-band antenna in this phone. No calls In or out and ZERO data; and I know it is not the phone because this is my second one! I normally have to use my friends AT&T hot spot in order to do anything. So, out of curiosity would it be possible to use the Sprint M8 on an AT&T go phone plan? Any information would be very much appreciated!

Unfortunately, no, the technologies utilized by the Sprint version of the One M8 are not the same as the AT&T variant. AT&T (and T-Mobile) uses GSM technology, while Sprint (and Verizon) uses CDMA. Therefore, because of these differences in network technologies, your phone would be incompatible for use on AT&T's network - prepaid or postpaid.
For some reason, Verizon-locked iPhones have the ability to work on AT&T's network, but not the other way around. I'm not sure if this applies to select Android devices.
