CDMA or GSM?

Hi,

I know xfinity uses verizon network but as per this new verizon is no longer provisioning new lines for CDMA so just wondering

Hello JustAG03,

 

Thank you for your contribution and for highlighting the article!  Gladly I’ll provide more information.

 

As of now, Xfinity Mobile (XM) has not released any official correspondence relating to this matter.  Judging from the article itself, it sounds like Verizon is preemptively taking actions to reduce and eventually remove order devices/technology from the network.

 

The article indicates that by 1/1/2021, support for CDMA devices “may receive limited support and customers are encouraged to upgrade to newer technology”.  Of the impacted devices that the article mentions, none are compatible with XM to begin with.

 

As it pertains to your One Plus 7, currently, it is not an officially supported device via our BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program.  Yet, chances are that if you already have XM service, the device will function properly if you were to do a SIM swap.  Per policy we don’t recommend an unsolicited SIM swap due to not being able to guarantee the service.

 

I will continue to monitor and follow up on this thread with any new information related to the topic.  Hope this helps!

 

Thanks again,

 

Chris

It's almost end of 2020. Is there any news about Xfinity Mobile accepting GSM phones?

 

Thanks

Funny, but true story! In doing some online research as to whether Xfinity is a CDMA or GSM network, I can across this thread. So after reading the questions and responses from Xfinity employees, I went onto Xfinity to check BYOD for compatibility. And this is what I was told after entering my current device's IMEI ...UNFORTUNATELY YOUR PHONE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH OUR NETWORK. Bahahahahahahaha....I'm laughing because the current device I am using and have been using for almost 4 months was actually purchased at an XFINITY store and I have been using it on the XFINITY network because I have a cell plan through them. I have an A70 which is a GSM phone and yet their site said my phone wasn't compatible. So you tell me what's up with Xfinity not giving correct info.
