Unlocked Galaxy S10 from Samsung.com

Hello! I currently have a Boost branded Galaxy S8 and I preordered an unlocked S10 from Samsung.com (I don't want the S10e or I would have bought it from Boost directly). When I get the phone, can I take my Boost Mobile SIM card out of the S8 and pop it in the S10, or will I need to buy the SIM kit?

Or is this all just a waste of time and I should just return the phone when I get it? I've seen people say the unlocked S10 does work and others say it doesn't.

That's all! So as long as I purchase the correct compatible SIM, the phone will work with Boost?

Hi there! Thanks for your inquiry. You need to order a compatible SIM card. Please follow this link to do so:  https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone. Besides this, do you have any other question or concern?

On BestBuy the unlocked s10 description says it would work with all carriers and boost mobile is on that list of carriers so yes it is compatible but i dont know if boost mobile themselves would activate it.

On the s10 did all your features work on boost such as wifi calling, messaging, etc.?

I suggest to everyone as long as your phone is paid for and not a made for Boost phone switch to Sprint Kickstart $25 a month plus taxes and fees with auto-pay and you get wi-fi calling and 3g/4g Wifi calling which means you finally get a feature back they haven't had since the S3 I think it was where you can talk on the phone and still use your internet connection.
