Hi, I am thinking of buying a used Note 8 unlocked with US variant SM-N950U for a good price of about $320. Should I assume that your posting about this software patch for N950U means that SM-N950U will work in the Boost network? Thanks in advance, Margaret

Yes, if it's unlocked from the prior carrier, you are good.

Thanks! I decided to buy a brand new unlocked with that US variant SM-N950U. Will arrive on Friday. Then, I'll get the SIM kit. Fingers crossed! I have had a Note 2 since 2012 ... hope this switch works!!!

Cool, just hit me up if you run into any issues.  Did you get the unlocked version from Samsung?  The SE?

I bought it off of eBay with a company that does a ton of wireless business and has a top reputation. I hope I'm not being naive. They were selling both new and used. I decided to grab the new one (unopened) to be safe.

Yes, but is it a Special Edition (SE) from Samsung or just an unlocked version?  Did you get the ESN/MEID from him?

Nobody asked me to get that info. I can ask but it might be too late re: shipping.

Does that work for you? The seller updated the listing, so this is a view of what I bought. I can send a screenshot instead if that helps. Thanks for your help!!
