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

Hi there Edwardco99. The Note 8 SE ( Special Edition) is the device compatible with Boost Mobile. You are able to confirm the eligibility of the device on the following link: https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone?INTNAV=TopNav:BYOP. Victor21

Again very vague. Searching the internet and found only one such a reference to a special edition. It's only available in Korea and is called an Avant. $1800 US dollars and only in Korea. Please give exact model number. Been a boost customer since back in the Nextel days.

Hi. The Model information that we have is the Note 8 SE only. No other information is available at this time. Victor21

I am in the process of getting a new phone. I am looking at the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, however I want to make sure that it is a device that can be activated.

Any help would be great.

Hey there, tlcawyer! We can activate the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Special Edition. You can find the list with the compatible unlocked phones in this website http://boost.co/2gB0A9C.

The unlocked version bought directly from Samsung is model # SM-N950U1 and it WILL NOT work with boost. This Note 8 SE version you keep telling people will work with boost does not exist or there are so few of them available. Quit giving these people false information. If boost mobile doesnt work with Note 8 unlocked then tell them that and quit confusing them. Are you doing that for laughs or something?

Hi Fred_Moseley!

 

The Note 8 version we refer to is the N950U1, or Samsung Unlocked version. To check it's compatibility, just go to https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone?intnav=TopNav:Phones:BringYourPhone.

Edwin there are others in this thread who have already stated they tried to activate that exact model number with a byod SIM card with zero success. I personally took that same model number note 8 to 3 different boost mobile stores in my area and all 3 say that model number sm-n950u will not work on the boost network.

Would you allow us to check on one of the IMEI numbers? We'd like to pass that on to R&D for investigation, since that model is supposed to be fully compatible with our services. Please reach out via private message with that information.
