Samsung Galaxy s10 plus

Hello

I pre-order the Samsung Galaxy s10 plus from Samsung.com and I was wondering if I could activate it with boost mobile? I did the same with my s9 plus last year too, I was hoping it is possible with the s10 plus too. I don't want to have to change my carrier. Please let me know so I can be prepared when I receive my s10 plus.

 

Thank you,

Are any of those working for you? From the responses here on the forums, it seems that Sim card model Simolw516tq is the one that is needed.

hello everyone,
If you can get your hands on Virgin mobile sim card with sim part number SIMOLW416TQ, that will work with s10. my s10 plus is working with service now.
I have previously said I called boost and they said they will send me a free sim card but it might take up to 10 days well it only took one day.

I hope this helps ya!!!

Update: I go my s10+ today, but for some reason my phone is saying not compatible now. I bought the factory unlocked model from Best Buy. Model # SM-G975UZKAXAA

@trillzoe60 I'd give them a call or chat with them through the My Boost app and they can send you the correct SIM.

Hey there, @trillzoe60! Thanks for contacting us. Did you check your phone's eligibility at: https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone?intnav=TopNav:Phones:BringYourPhone Bear in mind that, not all phones are compatible with our service. Please visit the link previously provided to confirm its eligibility. If it is compatible, the system will provide you with instructions on how to get a proper SIM Card. Do not switch SIM cards from another phone to this one, since it will not work.

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share my experience with the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus I purchased from Best Buy. Here are some details about the phone and SIM models:

I got the white model.
Model: SMG975U1ZWAX
SIM Model: SIMOLW416TQ - It came in Virgin Mobile packaging.

Prior to purchasing this phone, I was a Boost Mobile customer already, so this is a swap for me. I picked up my phone from Best Buy on Friday (3/8) and called Boost Mobile that same day. I walked through the prompts to transfer service, but since the unlocked model comes with no SIM, I was put in the queue to talk to a rep.

I explained to the rep that it was the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, then he said he would see if there was a compatible SIM for it. He found one and they shipped me the SIM model mentioned above. It arrived today (3/12).

I called again and went through the activation process for the phone, then went to a rep. The first rep told me the SIM was not compatible with this phone. I explained to him that this is the SIM I was sent by Boost Mobile. He then transferred me to tech support (about a 5-10 minute wait). The next rep was able to get my phone activated with no problem. I just provided him the MEID and the SIM's number and it went right through!

I hope this helps those of you still looking for answers!
