How can I be a tester for the Samsung note 8 unlocked on the xfinity system

I understand that you are not ready for BYOP for android phones yet. Can I be a phone tester for you with my Samsung unlocked Note 8?

Thank-you,

The Galaxy phones they sell are unlocked.
Model #'s are:
S8 (G950U)
S8+ (G955U)
Note 8 (N950U)
These phones are unlocked. As the U designates on all the 2017+ devices.
They utilize a Verizon Wireless SIM by default, for mobile usage.

From an Xfinity Mobile employee;
"You can bring an unlocked phone to an Xfinity Retail Store and they will activate it on the Xfinity Mobile network."
I'm not 100% on that, haven't tested it. I do know that they sent me an unlocked version on the S8 when I was sent my test kit for the Boston area.

If you contact Xfinity Mobile and request a supervisor right away. Don't discuss any of the query with the first person that answers. Sometimes the second person isn't even the department manager.
Always ask! They are the only ones that will have the information that you need and are able to give you a finite answer. Assuming you are an Xfinity customer. If they can not bring up your account, you will get no answers that help.

Randy_Brooks, I haven't heard of any beta trials by customers at this time.
