Samsung S10e BYOD Where have people bought it from and got it to work?

Hey all,

 

I want to replace my phone and ultimately do a SIM swap.  Which vendors have people managed to source an S10 or S10e from and got it activate on Xffinity?  Since I will not have access to the IMEI until I buy it,  and I know which model versions to avoid but I want to focus on vendors where people bought the correct unlocked model.

 

Thanks,

Hello merlincryst,

 

Thanks for taking the time to post to the forum.  I’ll be more than happy to provide more information on this front.

 

When acquiring your new device, the one model number that you want to avoid is a device model number ending in ‘U1’.  Also, as it pertains to Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e, make sure you do not purchase from AT&T or Charter.  None of the models mentioned from those service providers are compatible with the Xfinity Mobile BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program.

 

I’ll keep looking into this for any new developments and will post again if I come across any new info.

 

Hope this helps.  Don’t wait to reach back out if you have any further questions.

I purchased mine from XM (2 times) and got one card which I applied it to the phone.
