Just bought a Galaxy S7 from a Sprint customer. TMobile says the IMEI shows as being unlocked but we can't get the phone to work with a TM sim card. It says something to the effect of "must be used with the current UICC carrier". How can I get it to work with TM? Some online sources say that S automatically unlocks your phone when it becomes eligible, but that it is really still stuck to them as a carrier. Other sites say it can be "flashed" but several stores I have talked to said not to do that because it can easily "brick" the phone. Any suggestions? TIA
