Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10+

If I buy a Samsung Galaxy S10+ from Samsung will I be able to use it on Boost Mobile?

Thanks. That's the exact card I have in my S8+ so hopefully I won't need to order one

I got the correct sim card from Best Buy. It's the one from Sprint, not the one from Boost.

Yes the compatible sim card for the s10+ is not carried by Boost but Sprint. Make sure you do not get the Boost kit otherwise the sim will not work.

My S10plus keeps having a Sprint hub requests show up on my dashboard. It doesn't appear my services are effected other than slow data downloads.The sim card I'm using is, SIMOLW416TQ. Should I be concerned?

Hi there! This is due to a change in how the Android 8.X Operating System handles background processes. Android 8 “Oreo” now displays this information, and once the impacted applications are updated to the latest version, the usage from the Sprint Hub will drop. If you are not interested in the notification from "Sprint Hub". If you want to stop this, please go to Settings > Apps or Applications >Tap the three dots > Show System Apps > App (Sprint Hub) > Notifications> Turn Off.

S10's come with Android 9 Pie not, 8 Oreo.  The fix for turning off notifications should still be the same though.  I would disable the Sprint Hub if it allows you to do so on top of disabling notifications.
