Must phone be unlocked to switch to sprint

Hi. Must my iPhone 8 be unlocked by boost mobile to switch to a sprint plan? Or can it still be locked?

Hi, @hartmank48! We recommend you to contact Sprint so they can provide you that information.

Yes, they said that the device would have to have device cleared from the data base.

@hartmank48. There are some requirements to unlock a device:
-The device has not been reported as lost or stolen 
-The device has been active on the associated account for at least 12 months
-The device must be powered on and in Sprint coverage with the original SIM card inserted.
