Did you buy the Boost BYOD SIM kit as well? Which SIM from the set did you end up using, or did you get another SIM altogether?

I had no problems activating my unlocked phone with Boost as well. I went online with my IMEI right off the box and it said congratulations your phone is eligible & told me what sim card I needed. I went to a Boost store and they activated my phone along with giving me the sim card the phone will take. I was planning on going to another carrier if Boost didn't work, but I am happy with Boost and they get to keep me longer. Don't let these reps fool you. The Note 9 is compatible with Boost. I have my Note 9 512GB unlocked thru Samsung that I bought at Best Buy on the Boost Network and everything works fine. Just need to download the Sprint Voicemail app, since the phone doesn't come pre installed with a visual voicemail app, but other then that everything is just as good as my S8, but much faster and better with loads of room to store stuff.

Re: Will the note 9 be eligible for activation?

I got my Note 9 on Tuesday at Best Buy. It is compatible with Boost Mobile. I am using my S Pen to handwrite this on the Boost network. After 30 minutes spent at the Boost Store with no luck or help. They said not compatible. I paid for a SIM card and went back to Best Buy. After talking to the very helpful Best Buy representative a light bulb. went off. Here are the steps:
1. Go to https://activate.boostmobile.com/bring-your-phone?intnav=BotNav:Shop:BringYourPhone
2. Input your Device ID ( IMEI),
After you hit enter, you should get a compatible with SIM and a number.
you put the SIM in and it should ask for the ICC. Once it says activated, for me I had voice and text only-almost freaked out. I restarted my phone and the activation process finished and I had data.
Boost has SIM cards for $10, and Best buy also has SIM cards, although I don't know their cost.
I have been playing and exploring the Note 9. It is fast, the color Is gorgeous on the screen, and I played around with the camera some, so far I am happy.
Don't let Boost tell you it is not compatible. It is, I am using it now on the Boost network. I also would rather handwrite than type and the S Pen handles cursive and print without a problem usually. I hand wrote this response.
