New Galaxy S10: Sprint or Unlocked?

I'm about to order a new Galaxy S10 from Samsung, for use on Boost Mobile.. I can order a phone for Sprint or an unlocked phone. Which is the best option for getting the phone up and running as quickly as possible?

Yes, didn't work, that is why I reached out to boost. They said they would register it and it would take 7-10 business days. Just called back and now being told otherwise.

Hi there, @crisilyn! Are you trying to activate the unlocked S10 purchased directly from Samsung? Did you try using the eligibility checker here at https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone?

It is a unlocked phone, but not bought through samsung directly. Was told it was compatible. Then being told they would only need to register it.

Hi, how did you manage to activate it? I just bought an unlocked s10+ from Best buy (website said it was compatible with boost) but had trouble activating as well. Called someone from customer service and she told me this phone model is not yet compatible with boost
