Re: Can I use Verizon Samsung S9 phone on Sprint?

Thank you for your post today.

 

Actually, only the special version of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ (bought directly from Samsung) is compatible with the Sprint network.

 

Unlocked versions coming from other carriers are not eligible to be activated under the Bring Your Own Device program.

 

For a full list of eligible devices and to learn more about BYOD visit:

I will be happy to assist in finding the list of devices that do not fit, but I am curious to know, are you looking at a specific plan/offer?

Re: Can I use Verizon Samsung S9 phone on Sprint?

If I'm not mistaken I think Special Editions have to be devices bought directly from Samsung but not 100% for sure. I would think as well it should display that information on About Phone Screen of the device as well. 🙂
