In iPhone
Generally, these days, phones that can be moved from system to system are GSM phones. Phones that are sold by Sprint and Verizon are not GSM - or they are not GSM on their home systems.

The iPhone uses GSM.

The system that Sprint uses is NOT GSM, so a GSM only phone like the iPhone won't work on Sprint, period, end of story.

Sprint will sell you an "International Phone" that will work as a Sprint phone in the US and will switch to GSM when you are in an area that Sprint is not in and GSM is in. Like Europe, for example.
In some countries, all cell phones use the same system. When cell phones were first introduced in the US many years ago, that was true here. There were two systems, and you paid full price for a cell phone and you could transfer it from system to system. Eventually that changed; phones were locked into systems, and incompatible systems were introduced.

But then much of the rest of the world standardized on GSM and AT&T changed from the analog/digital system they were using here to the GSM system. In the US, national carriers that use GSM are AT&T and T-Mobile.
