The S4GRU BYOD Sim Compatibility Chart

Recommended Posts

I'll try and keep this as updated as possible as information becomes available. 

Maybe i'll find one time to do one for all of Sprints devices eventually...

Very helpful. Also, very frustrating. I thought the thing about SIM cars was that they were universal?

Could you add the S8 Active?

I'll make a spreadsheet for non BYOD devices in time. 


Sims are sorta "universal" if you take into considering the BYOD ones. The great reason why Sprint has so many sim variants is they're developing the sim card module as they update their network and devices. They have little experience in that category so must constantly iterate  in order to take advantage of new technological developments on the handset and on the network side. We can see this move from USIMs to CSIMs and now ISIMs. 

S8 Active is..

I'm kind of confused as to why the new SIMs aren't backwards compatible in that case. In China, with China Telecom, it was great. They're a CDMA/LTE carrier very much like Sprint, but it was one SIM for all devices, just like a GSM carrier. Their SIM cards (UICC I assume with CSIM app and... ISIM app? USIM app? I'm not sure) were even able to be used in a Sprint LG G5 I had with me - 3G/voice was EV-DO/1xRTT and LTE on Band 3/26. What makes it so hard for Sprint to do something similar, at least with all devices that don't use NV programming?

@lilotimz, do you know what the SIM SIMOLW506TQ is used for?  According to https://bestcellular.com/product/simolw506tq/, it covers a wide range of phones for Sprint.

That's the ISIM BYOD Sim card.

      Interesting acquisition announced today....Blackberry to acquire Good Technologies. For those of you who don't know or are familiar with Good, it's basically a BYOD platform for enterprises. (Email, intranet, etc.) Not necessarily directly Sprint related, but many people use both.

      I've seen some threads recently about the differences between SIM/UICCs and though posting a compatibility matrix would help people.
       
      This is pretty straightforward. The matrix has every Sprint LTE device, and what UICC card is meant for that device. Mix and matching UICC card types probably will not work, but swapping around UICC cards for devices that use the same type of card should work properly.
       
      Keep in mind, you cannot simply move your UICC card to another phone to use it. Sprint's device authentication system still requires the correct UICC and MEID to be on the account to authenticate properly and work.

    • Those FCC docs are all in place to "sell" the idea of the merger. So you better believe they are over blowing all of Sprint's inadequacies (and T-mobile's for that matter) There's no question that they can both go at it alone (T-mobile especially) it would just not be nearly as fruitful from a business stand point. 
    • I'm still waiting for my notification, I can't wait.  I've used a bunch of 3rd party apps for this, but nothing was "silver bullet" Did you get a Messages upgrade?  Wondering if the version i have is compatible.  I'm on 3.3.044
    • It was honestly shocking to see Sprint officially put in writing what my suspicions have been in terms of their network plans and business sustainability going forward. Marcelo put a pretty face on it for a long time in terms of a “five year turnaround” plan, but it’s now clear that the marketing and messaging around that was to buy time/room to get to this point in time for a merger to happen. The stuff/figures in the redacted portions of the FCC Filing must also present a pretty bleak picture on Sprint, if the unredacted text reads as is.
    • Could be with M-MIMO equipment being tested. But most likely an event going on.  Try to get a closer shot of the rear and connectors.
    • Didn't think it was sprint. And I haven't noticed any other equipment present in the area but I'll walk around lunch time to see if there is anything else.  I'm still connected to the standard Clear B41 site. could it be possible they are replacing it and wanted to have a back up solution to pick up the weight of the tower being offline?
