Note About Prepaid Carriers That Use the Sprint Network:
Carriers that use the wireless infrastructure of Sprint will face some changes.  Some have made an agreement with T-Mobile, the new owner of Sprint, and coverage of their phones will slowly improve as they begin to use parts of the T-Mobile network.  Others have not made, or at least not yet announced, any new agreement and they may be confined to the existing Sprint network, which will remain intact until 2023.  Carriers that have notified us of an agreement with T-Mobile are noted in our Reviews.
