Can I activate the Galaxy Note 10 on Boost Mobile

Does anyone know if the Note 10 or Note 10+ work on Boost Mobile.

Hello, @Jorgeluis1472! No news on that yet, but keep checking!

Unfortunately, no. I preordered an unlocked Note 10+ directly from Samsung and received it in the mail yesterday. I went to activate it on my Boost Mobile account, and it's unable to be activated at this time. Sprint won't activate it either nor will any other Sprint MVNO networks. This is really stupid! They need to get it together! I'm a long time subscriber with Boost but will be switching to Cricket because of this nonsense. AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and all of their MVNOs are able to activate the phone, but Sprint is being stupid about it. Bye bye Boost! SMH

Did you put the IMEI on Boost Mobile's website? Or did you go to the boost mobile store. Mine is getting here on Saturday.

Maybe is due to the phone not being released yet. Let's wait and see! If not, I will also move to Cricket.

Yeah, I'll give them until tomorrow. If they can't get it activated then, Cricket here I come. AT&T is a better network anyway. I just like that the $50 plan with Boost includes taxes and streaming on Tidal doesn't go against your high speed data allotment.

I attempted to swap the phone on my Boost Mobile account online, and I received the following error message.

"db_no_data_found_exception-Client.701:359XXXXXXXXXXXX is not found in NMS

Data not found"

I've also called customer service from last night until this morning to see if a rep could assist me with activating the phone with no success. In addition to this, I attempted to open an account with Sprint and put the phone on an Unlimited Kickstart plan, and Sprint wasn't able to activate the phone either. In conclusion, Sprint sucks when it comes to activating unlocked phones on its and its MVNOs networks upon their release.

It will work on Sprint's network using the MEID instead of the IMEI. I know because I was able to checkout last night on Sprint.

 

BoostMobile's Indian customer support wouldn't even let me ask to resku this phone. I think if they would resku and enter the MEID it should activate on the Sprint network just like it would if you were on Spring postpaid.

 

For Boost staff - let customer's resku and use the MEID when attempting to activate and provision the phone. It should work. Also put in a technical ticket to add the phone in the Boost network system.

I should also note that you need the Sprint network sim card stock number SIMOLW516TQ which now comes as part of 2018 sim kit. You should be able to buy it at Best Buy.

On another note, Boost Mobile now recognizes the phone since it's activated on Sprint. When I go to the activation page on Boost's website and enter the IMEI number, I get a message that says "Device does not appear to be eligible for activation" and a box to enter the ICCID number from a Boost/Sprint sim card appears rather than a weird error message that I encountered prior to activating the device on Sprint. The reason why it generates this message is because it's currently attached to a Sprint account. If I released it from my Sprint account, I'm sure I'd be able to activate it on Boost Mobile without an issue. With that being said, anyone who has trouble activating his unlocked Note/Note 10+ on Boost might want to see about swapping it on a friend or family member's Sprint account and then removing it, and perhaps you'll be able to activate it on Boost then. Of course you'll need the appropriate Sprint or Boost Mobile SIM card to be activated along with it. The one that works for me on Sprint is SIMGLW416TQ. I hope this helps and that everyone's able to get his unlocked Note/Note 10+ activated with as little headache as possible! Dealing with all the foolishness I encountered had my head ringing for sure!

Did you buy a Note 10? And also were you able to activate yours?

I did everything I could possibly do online and over the phone to get my unlocked Note 10+ activated on Boost and Sprint last night and this morning and had 0 success! I even requested for a couple of Boost reps to resku my phone for me. They were really nice and did everything they could to help but weren't able to get the phone activated.

I do have GREAT NEWS however! I visited a Best Buy about an hour ago and got a mobile associate to activate the phone on the $25 Sprint Unlimited Kickstart plan for me! The whole process only took about 15 minutes tops! The associate provided me with sim card SIMGLW416TQ which is the one that was needed to activate my phone. I'm now good to go and have a much cheaper plan as well! 😁

I forgot to mention that my unlocked Note 10+ allows me to make Voice over LTE phone calls on the Sprint Unlimited Kickstart plan! I can finally make phone calls and use data at the same time! This is something I've been unable to do for the past couple of years using an Unlocked Note 8 on Boost Mobile!

Yeah I mean Im considering switching to Spring Kickstarter, I just had a really bad history with spring charging crazy numbers. I like that boost is the exact same amount and no restrictions. It really is anti-customer to not let us bring a device we paid full price direct from the manufacturer.

What 😯?! Boost made me go through Hell trying to activate my phone! I'm glad to hear it was so easy for you!
