More of a good news than a good deal. Starting Feb 19th you can unlock the SIM slot in your Sprint iPhones.

Domestic SIM Unlock (DSU)
A domestic SIM unlock allows a device owner to insert another domestic carrier’s SIM card into the device in order to attempt to activate the device on that carrier’s network.

Once you are told that you are unlocked. Go to your dial pad and dial "##873283#" Make the call and it will update your service and unlock your phone. No need to reset or restore your phone.

Also if you have a iPhone you don't have to call to get it unlocked, just do the above and you will be domestically unlocked. All iPhones from are automatically unlocked from a few days ago. You just have to perform the above.

So I just got off the phone with Sprint and told them that I have a Sprint iphone that I got off craigslist and wanted to get it unlocked. The operator checked the imei number and said that it was not reported stolen or from an unpaid account. She then told me that it would receive an over the air unlock that should show up on my iPhone shortly. When/if it happens I will take a picture and post (she said there would be a notification pop up.)

Also if this phone number works for the DSU for the iPhone 5s... I will love you.
