I have recieved an unlocked verizon s9 phone and would like to use it with sprint. Is this possible? I have not had success after providing the imei number to 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?
these are the current devices allowed..the list gets updated as things change but from the looks of it its semi current
my bad..didnt see your post.
i do not however know how to tell if a device is a Special Addition or not though. writing on the device itself? on the splash screen during start up?
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. 🙂
