Can I purchase a used Samsung Note 4

I want to purchase a used Galaxy Note 4.  (lost my current phone and want to get the same model). How can I make sure that my new used phone will be compatible with my Ting plan -- BEFORE I buy it?

  • Hi David, 

     When purchasing a new phone to use on Ting there are a couple of things that you'll want to look at. The first thing you'll want to find out from the seller is if the phone is unlocked. If the phone is locked it will only be able to use the SIM card of the carrier it is locked to and not one of our Ting SIM cards. The other thing you are going to have to look into is the model number. The Galaxy Note 4 is produced for different regions around the world and each region has a specific model number. The North American version of the phone is the N910W8. 

     What I would suggest if you plan on buying a Note 4 from a private seller on Swappa or another site is to ask them to test out the IMEI of the phone using our phone checker. Most sellers I've reached out to about this have had no issue sending a screenshot saying it's compatible and this doesn't require them giving you the IMEI which some sellers prefer not to do until a purchase is made. 

     I hope this information helps but if you have any other questions please feel free to reach out and ask. We're all more than happy to help!
