Does the device has to be unlocked from sprint?

I wonder if the device has to be unlocked inorder to use it on freedompop,

I mean, do I just go to ebay and find a sprint galaxy s3 with clean ESN and it will work..?

Thanks a lot.

    @kyle‌ yup thats the ticket! For more specifics just wander over to the forum threads for that device, but all phones should be Sprint and out of their service already.

    The device doesn't have to be unlocked per se. It just has to be a Sprint phone that has completed the terms of the contract (and hasn't been reported as lost or stolen). I purchased my Sprint S3 off of craigslist locally for $100 and it has been working great since I finally narrowed down what number I need to submit to check. Whatever you do, make sure you don't list any number other than the DEC, it will save you a lot of hassle in the long run.
