    ATT uses GSM tech, Sprint uses CDMA tech, which are not compatible with each other.
    Phones on one will not work on the other.

    Your ATT phone is compatible with TMobile and any carrier using either of those networks.

    And don't depend on the information salesdroids give you to be accurate - or even close (as in this case - not even far off is a better description). My Pixel 2 is on TMobile, a GSM carrier, but I also have a SIM from a Sprint MVNO (Tello), and it works fine. Some phones have radios for both GSM and CDMA. (They had to be made that way or Project Fi wouldn't work.)
