Sim to new phone

I have a T mobile I phone and my girlfriend has an older sprint iPhone. I got the new 12 and gave her my iPhone which is paid off. Her phone isn’t paid off. When I switch to mine hers says “SIM card locks so (sprint). Does her phone need to be paid off? She’s keeping her number and plan

It varies, make sure you called and unlocked your Tmobile iPhone first and foremost - after that it depends on which version iPhone it is as some of the Tmobile ones will not work on Sprint.

Like the previous post said call Tmobile and unlock your old phone. If it doesn’t work after that you probably need to get a new SIM card for her. Just call Sprint/T-Mobile. I’m guessing her phone was a CDMA model. The SIM card won’t be affected by payment status of any phone on the line. If you found a Sprint phone, her SIM would work.
