Your device must be a Sprint eligible phone. This means you have an Android or iOS device that you’ve purchased from Sprint (or from a carrier that partners with Sprint, like Boost Mobile, Ting or Republic Wireless), and you would like to use that phone with our service.
Our service is powered by the Sprint network and that relationship allows us to accept compatible devices, to use with our plans and services. If you do not have a compatible device to BYOP, please visit our website to purchase a phone, that you will be able to use with our service!
What does "Sprint Eligible" mean?
This means the device can be used on Sprint or any carrier that is a Sprint MVNO (Ting, Republic Wireless, Boost Mobile, Straight Talk, etc).
Usually, devices are locked when you purchase them on a contract, directly from a major carrier (like Sprint). After 2 years your contract is over, but the device is still locked to the carrier. Since the contract has expired, you can contact the carrier to have them unlock the phone, if you prefer to use the phone with a different CDMA carrier. Either locked or unlocked phones will work with our service.
Finally, the device must also be free of any existing plans or service. This means -- although the phone is Sprint eligible -- you do not currently have a talk, text and data plan with Sprint or any of its MVNOs.
If you are not sure if your device is locked or not, the best way to find out is to call your carrier and give them your phone's MEID number. They can tell you if that device is locked to their network.
An UNREAL Mobile representative can also tell you if your device is eligible for a BYOP activation! Please contact us to confirm. Again, you will need to provide the representative with your phone's MEID number.
