I pre-order the Samsung Galaxy s10 plus from Samsung.com and I was wondering if I could activate it with boost mobile? I did the same with my s9 plus last year too, I was hoping it is possible with the s10 plus too. I don't want to have to change my carrier. Please let me know so I can be prepared when I receive my s10 plus.
Update: I go my s10+ today, but for some reason my phone is saying not compatible now. I bought the factory unlocked model from Best Buy. Model # SM-G975UZKAXAA
Update: Got it! I told them i got the phone from Best Buy and then they sent me the link to purchase sim card. I just provided them the iccid code # for the sim card byod kit i got from Sprint and it worked.
Hey there, @trillzoe60! Thanks for contacting us. Did you check your phone's eligibility at: https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone?intnav=TopNav:Phones:BringYourPhone Bear in mind that, not all phones are compatible with our service. Please visit the link previously provided to confirm its eligibility. If it is compatible, the system will provide you with instructions on how to get a proper SIM Card. Do not switch SIM cards from another phone to this one, since it will not work.
Will the same method work for the S10? I don't really NEED a Plus.
So I can just buy an unlocked version from Samsung and then buy the sim card kit from Best Buy and activate it through Boost?
I also want to get my number switched over to the phone. I won't have any issues will I?
Any of the S10's should be the same once you get the phone you can put the phones IMEI number on the Boost BYOD site and it will tell you the exact SIM card you need.
Hi there, @daiko! The Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10 and S10+ purchased unlocked from Samsung are compatible with our service, you'll just need a compatible SIM card.
