Re: Iphone 7 plus question

The Sprint version of the iPhone 7s is compatible with Boost service.  That said,  be careful buying a phone on eBay. It's pretty easy for people to sell you a phone that's attached to a cancelled account.  If it's not reported lost of stolen, the ESN may appear 'clear' but that doesn't mean it's unlocked, eligible for unlock or eligible for activation on another account.  

 

I've worked with some customers in the past who bought a phone this way only to find it was attached to an account with a balance.  If that happens, you're out the money and a phone.  Just be sure you're buying from a reputable reseller.
