Unlocked Sprint Galaxy S9 phone not compatible with Verizon (per Verizon)

I've recently read that Ting will move off the T-Mobile network and that the Verizon network is expected to be available in the future. My concern is that my Sprint unlocked phone will not be usable on the Verizon network.

When my Nexus 5x phone died (thanks LG) I replaced it with an unlock Sprint Galaxy S9. Since Sprint coverage at my home is poor, I moved the phone to your T-Mobile network. At one point I was going to give the S9 to a friend to use but their provider is Verizon and my friend was told by Verizon that the Sprint phone could not be used on the Verizon network.

Will Sprint branded unlocked Galaxy S9 phones be compatible with Ting's Verizon network?

Thanks.

  • Hi Kenneth,

     There have been some changes with our plans in regard to what networks we're going to be offering going forward. In the new year, we're going to have some great announcements that I'm sure you won't want to miss but if you click that link you'll get some insight.

     As for a Sprint device working on the Verizon network, it is true that not all of them will work on the network so it will all depend on the MEID/IMEI. We'll have our checker updated in the near future here and we'll be able to tell which networks a specific phone can work on then.
