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,

I have not but after chatting with several Boost Mobile reps and after sending me 2 SIM cards which never worked, it was concluded that this phone is not compatible! So off to T-Mobile I go.

Hello, @rafael6867. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, specific model (SM-G975U1) has been authorized to be activated with us. Did you check the IMEI on our website: https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone?intnav=TopNav:Phones:BringYourPhone?

I appreciate what you say but the Customer Service reps should have known this! I don't really need to have to go to a community chat to get this info when the reps should have had this info at their disposal! Correct? Am I missing something here?

@rafael6867 You are 100% correct about the Boost Mobile reps! They absolutely should know but sometimes they don't because of what information they are given from Boost Mobile. I am certain Boost Mobile didn't want people activating S10 and S10+'s unlocked because they wanted push the S10e instead. Maybe that came from Sprint, who knows, but cell phones like most things have a way around certain things. And people on here always find a way to activate phones or get the right SIM cards etc.

Just go to Best Buy. They have the Sprint sim card you need to operate your unlocked phone on Boost. Thata what I did and my S10 works just fine.

Did any one of you guys have to start a Sprint plan or prepaid plan with that 4 in 1 Sim Kit before transferring over to Boost???

@mouhexiong You don't need to transfer over to Sprint. The SIM card is just compatible with Sprint and Boost that's all. The SIM card works with Boost Mobile already.

@mouhexiong nope, just went in and bought the kit and walked out. Granted, the salesman tried getting me to switch to Sprint, but there's no way they were beating the $45 a month I pay for unlimited. Pretty easy, otherwise.

@xlevix10 I went to a Sprint store to get a case for my S10+ and the salesman tried to get me to switch as well. He wanted me to pay $75 a month for unlimited plan. PASS

@mouhexiong did you have Boost Mobile.to begin with or no? If you already had Boost then all you need was an unlocked S10 or S10+ and the right SiM Card.

The guy at Best Buy told me, after he talked to Boost on the phone, that the Boost Sim isn't the correct card for the S10. He used the Sprint card to set mine up. Boost was up and running without a snag.

If Boost gives you problems Best Buy should be able to change you over to your new phone. I bought my SIM card from them and all I needed to do was to log into my account for them and they changed it all over for me. So much easier than dealing with Boost or Sprint they both gave me the run around just trying to get the right SIM card.

@otakufreak I had the same exact problem. I ended up calling the Boost Mobile 1-800 number and they helped me over the phone to activate my new phone.
