Hi @chrisharms054,

From the description it looks to be the correct model.Still, I suggest reading this first: How to Find a Compatible Unlocked Phone. Additionally, if you were to post the eBay link, we might provide better insight.


Does your wife already have this S7 currently with Sprint service? If so, the quickest way would be to install the Republic Wireless App to confirm compatibility before buying an RW SIM card.

Assuming your phone proves to be compatible and you end up buying a SIM card, please note that BYOP activation will be on RW’s GSM partner. So your coverage could be different from what you are used to right now on Sprint. If Sprint or RW’s CDMA partner is a better fit for you,
then you will have to submit a help ticket and RW can evaluate if they can improve your coverage by sending you a CDMA SIM card.
