BYOD Research Team Progress ????

I read in an article in August that an xfinity mobile executive had assigned a xfinity mobile team the task or looking into bringing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) to xfinity mobile.  Does anyone out there know the progress of this project? Sure would be nice to at least get an update.

Thanks Ken!  Please keep us posted if you do hear.  I am very happy with my xfinity mobile service and would very much like to add another line if BYOD becomes avaliable.

Will do. On the same note, once it's announced, I'm sure we'll have a megathread with the details.

This has been literally the ONLY thing holding me back from switching over to Xfinity Mobile.  I bought Motorola phones specifically because I wanted to be able to switch carriers without having to purchase new phones and have been waiting for this ever since Xfinity Mobile was announced.

Should have bought the $1 LG and swapped the SIM.  Just sayin'. Smiley Happy

An employee at a local Xfinity store told me that BYOD will be available in January 2018.
