Will the Pixel 3 be supported by the Boost network?
About a year ago the Pixel 2 was still not supported, but things could have changed since then. If it's not, is there an ETA on when compatibility will be implemented, if ever?
Ok, update. I went on there website (https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone) and plugged in my Pixel 3 IMEI. It said it was compatible so I went ahead and called support. I told them about the situation that I've been dealing with and said they were going to mail me a new boost mobile sim card compatible with the pixel 3. They said it would take 3-5 business days so hopefully sometime this week I'll tell yall how that went down.
This is great news, but they need to update their list. I have been wanting to get a Pixel 3, but have been hesitant because I wanted it through Boost Mobile. Wondering if this is the card in my hand that will help push this forward. Thank you for taking the time to get Boost Mobile and Google together and make this happen.
Thank you for that.
So I received more news and well it was quite surprising and I want to know if this just affected me or all pixel users. I never received a phone call back so I had to call them and once again explain everything from the get-go. Turns out, they manually removed my IMEI to be compatible. So now I am confused because these following bullet points contradict each other.
-For some reason, through Boost's official website my Pixel 3 XL, IMEI said it was supported and "all I needed was a sim card."
-Boost sent me a sim card and I had it tested by a tech specialist at boost saying that "This sim card IS compatible with Pixel 3 XL"
-Google has "World-wide network/carrier compatibility " with all US carriers. (Is boost mobile the exception?)
-Boost always fails to activate the phone saying it's not compatible.
So for anyone that has a Pixel device, can you please, even if you are not with Boost, plug in your IMEI into the boost official website [https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone] and tell me if its compatible or not, to know for sure if they manually took me out of the system because I was being too much of a struggle for them and they thought this problem could go away by removing me. Or if they officially removed all pixel devices from Boost mobile regardless of what Google promotes and in fact IS compatible with Sprint (same network that Boost uses).
Thank you for listening to my rant,
@ProximalDread Thanks for the info, I was considering getting this phone, so before I do I will check to make sure it is compatible with their service.
