Re: Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

Once they transferred your S8+ phone to boost mobile, did  it work? Was it doable? I only ask because I am also interested in an S8+ but I keep reading off different articles, that Boost cannot work with the S8+.

I have the s8 plus through sprint and already contacted them a month or so ago.  They transferred me to boost and customer service advised it was only compatible with the s8 and did not know when boost would add the plus; was told I could buy the s8 and switch but I told her I had just bought the plus and wasn't buying another phone.

Would you mind sharing where you purchased your device and what kind of sim card you used?

Hey there, @daiko! To activate a Samsung S8 Plus it must be open market. Not wireless carrier-specific. Unlocked by OEM.
To confirm the device compatibility, please click here. Just enter the device IMEI and click continue.
If compatible, the option to purchase a SIM card will be presented. Just follow the prompts to process the order.

Why does boost only carry the s8+ used? I purchased a used one and the plug almost melted and could have caused a fire. I don't want another used one, I want a new one.
