Same here except I bought mine from best buy and they are saying my phone isn't even compatible with the network. I don't understand it is an unlocked phone.

Hello, @ariannahorton. Thanks for reaching out to us. Let's take a closer look. What carrier did you get the handset from? Did you check its compatibility with the company? If not, visit the following link: https://boost.co/2trmLAx.

It is an unlocked phone. It says the phone is not eligible.
