Buying a Samsung S9 from Samsung

Hello everyone!!! So I went online to Samsung and saw that they have new storage capacities for pre-order (plus it has the color I want). I was wondering if it was possible to buy the s9 from Samsung directly and use it for Boost. They have a Sprint option, so I thought it could be possible. Thanks in advance.

 Not sure if you still need to know this, but yes, you can buy a S9 directly from Samsung and use it with boost, even the ones with higher gigs. I currently have a 128gb, and it works well. Make sure you get the SIM card  SIMOLW406TQ, which is compatible with the s9/s9+. Don't order a sim card from customer care, because they will send out the wrong sim card. I speak from experience, they sent me two sim cards for the s8. Also, don't listen to the reps in customer service or here that try the claim you can't use an unlocked s9/s9+.  They are just trying to make you buy from boost directly and have a sale in their pocket or they have no idea what they're talking about.  Hope this helps.
