Are you a Sprint customer that cares about unlocking your phone for use on another network? If so, I’ve got some good news for you and some not-so-good news.

First up, the good news. Sprint has revealed in its official unlocking policy that, as part of its participation in the CTIA’s Consumer Code for Wireless Service, it plans to make all of its devices — including prepaid models — capable of being domestically unlocked. The not-so-good news? Well, this policy will only apply to devices released on or after Feb. 11, 2015.

While some devices released recently have come unlocked out of the box, that’s not a feature that every phone or tablet currently supports. Thankfully, Sprint plans to change that next year, allowing consumers to unlock their device for use on another U.S. carrier so long as it has the proper wireless band support. It’s just a bummer that you Now Network folk will have to wait nearly a year before you’ll be able to buy a device that you know will be unlockable out of the box. At least we know the feature is coming, right?
