Hello kungpaoshizi! Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we don't have information about when it will be available. Keep visiting our website https://www.boostmobile.com/#!/. Any announcement will be first on our page.

I wish I had researched it first.

Now I have a Note 8 in a drawer, at home, waiting for Boost service. : (

Sorry to hear that, @Laffnatu. Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is not eligible to activate on Boost Mobile. We truly apologize.

Just an update:  Though Boost is not carrying the Note 8 at this time the "Open Market" version available through Samsung and some retailers can be activated on Boost Mobile.

I called customer service and asked about "open market" version and she had no clue what I was taking about.

Still confused....

Hi Laffnatu! The Open Market version of a phone would be the version of the device that comes unlocked from the factory (not bound to any carrier), usually obtained directly from the manufacturer.

You would need to complete the Bring your own program process at a store. Did you take it to a Boost mobile store to get a compatible SIM card and add the phone to our systems?
