Boost should allow us to activate the new Google Pixel phone as BYOD option.

Re: Google Pixel

Well my plan runs out at the end of the month and if by then I can't use my Google pixel on this network, I'm going to have to change networks. The reason I got the Google phone was because it is the best for accommodating my needs and keeping my different aspects of my life neat and organized. The boost phones are fine for simple things like calling and texting and checking my email, but my work stuff is better suited on a more advanced device.

Hey there, @Ash1313! Could you please private message us?

Re: Google Pixel

Why private message? There are a lot of us in the same boat. I have 4 lines and an S8 on boost, my wife wants to upgrade to a new phone and frankly our choices are too limited. There is no reason to stay if we cannot bring a device that we pay top dollar for over to boost when it's clearly compatible with the network 100%. There is no reason for him or I to stay when we can hop over to another provider who will gladly take our money and activate our phones.

Re: Google Pixel

Why should he not switch? We are in the same boat. 3 lines and my wife and I both want new phones that clearly are 100% compatible with the network but we get limited to the bad list of the ones you say we can have. All are available to standard Sprint customers. Frankly we don't see why we do not switch at this point and probably will. I'd rather pay 5$ more and have the device I want with faster speeds. My S8 on LTE is abysmally slow most of the time in excellent coverage. You can't say no to devices we want and are compatible with Sprint and have slow speeds and expect us to stay.

Re: Google Pixel

We understand your concern, Thirstymouse, and we apologize.A device designed for one network isn't necessarily made compatible with another network merely by unlocking it. Due to this limitation, some devices aren't eligible for this program.

Re: Google Pixel

It's all good. I've already activated my Google phone with Sprint. If boost upgrades at some point to be more compatible with advanced phones I'd come back.

Re: Google Pixel

That makes no sense since Boost is literally Sprint. Just more useless excuses because Sprint wants to play this game with consumers.
