Why isn't my Note 2 R950 compatible?
Answered

Even though the R950 is a CDMA-LTE phone, its IMEI and MEID is "incompatible" with Ting's 2G, 3G, 4G HSPA, and 4G LTE. Is this because the IMEI is locked or is it because of that sim card quirk that I read about with the R950?

  • That device isn't compatible because it's from U.S. Cellular. They get their phones made differently than pretty much everyone else out there. Sprint doesn't allow outside phones onto it's network, so CDMA is out as an option. U.S. Cellular has their phone made without any GSM capabilities beyond receiving an LTE signal, so it can't come on to that side of the network either. We simply have no workable option to activate it.

  • Would it be the same case for the i605? I tried putting in my other phone's IMEI and that didn't work, either.

  • It's a pretty similar thing with the i605. While it does have the basic GSM radios in it that would normally allow us to at least connect it for 2G service, we have found that some Verizon devices simply will not activate on our GSM network. The Note 2 is one of those devices.
