Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Will Boost Get the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or will we be able to use the Sprint Note 8 with Boost?

Keep in mind that the SIM cards for our devices are not the same as the universal SIM cards used for the unlocked phones. You can find details about the process of bringing your own device in this website http://boost.co/2pyP16x.

Tried to activate phone at Boost stire yesterday. She couldnt type in the whole serial number before she started getting a error message.
I guess I will try Sprint tomorrow.

I bought the Note 8 unlocked version to activate it with Boost Mobile. However I cannot make any phone calls when I inserted the sim card.

I have the Note 8 SM-N950UZKAXAA, However, I am unable to activate it to my account. Why? The Note 8 is unlocked.

Please provide the actual exact model number that is compatible with your network. Purchased the US version unlocked model number 

  • SM-N950UZKAXAA

Also purchased BOOST MOBILE BYOB TRI BAND SIM CARD KIT SKU NUMBER 

  • 588a

The retailer tried to activate it both online and with a rep from Boost and the Boost rep said the device was not compatible. According to Samsung all the devices include all the radios/frequencies for all carriers. No difference between carrier specific or unlocked. Only difference is carrier software.  I was able to get a refund for the phone and Sim card kit.
