Wanting to switch from Verizon, bringing samsung galaxy s6 edge plus, entered imei obtained from settings within phone on ting byod checker: I got the message below. Note: it doesn't mention the s6 (my model is sm-g928v per settings).
Your phone is compatible with Ting.
I went ahead and followed the steps to order a sim by selecting the CORRECT model of phone and ordered the recommended Ting nano sim c6. When i enter the iccid from settings after inserting the sim card, i get an error "Please enter a valid GSM SIM card number."
Side note: Per verizon's site, they auto-unlock phones and this phone is well beyond that time period
My question is: Do I just need a different Ting sim card?
PS i've missed ting's transparency and look forward to returning
