No problems.

Barring any last minute things going on over here, I'll be bringing the spreadsheet up to date sometime today.

What would happen if I put a iPhone 8 SIM in a iPhone 6s??? I find it odd that Sprint needs different SIM's for different phone's when the other 3 carriers and MVNO's can provide a single universal SIM...

It will not authenticate and the iPhone 6 will not have service.

Sprint Sims are paired to device and specific to device models as currently designed.

I meant to mention assuming I could update the associated IMEI through the website.

I am a little confused.

I have an old Sprint LG G2 (US model). I do  not think those came with SIMs. Would I be able to use this service?

Do you know if a Sprint LG G2 would work? I dont think those have any SIMs.

The G2 UICC is integrated onto the motherboard iirc. When my father had it when it was first released (we got the Nexus 5, S4T, G2 as our first triband phones!) there was only the microSD slot.

I posted s entry on the General Forum but I think this is more appropriate.

I purchased a used iPhone 7 for my son. It was formerly on the Verizon network. I believe the iPhone 7 for Verizon was unlocked from the get go. I researched and found (I think) the SIM I need is the SIMOLW506C. I grabbed one off eBay but didn't realize it was a "C" card (the letter in the big black dot on the SIM card (credit card size)). The Sprint site says I should use the "A" card. Trying to use the "C" card I get and "invalid ICCID" when trying to enter it into the Sprint Activate Phone wizard. Is this to be expected? Will just getting an "A" card (which I purchased on eBay but have not received as yet) solve my "Invalid ICCID" issue?

In hindsight I suspect I should have ordered the SIM Kit direct from Sprint but that's always 20:20.

So what do the different SIM Identifiers (A,B,C) mean for otherwise seemingly identical SIMs?

Thanks.

J

Silly me rather then ordering the SIM kit from Sprint due to ignorance on my part I obtained this
on eBay. When I enter the ICCID into the Sprint Activate tool it says it's invalid.
I see there are also cards with the same Part number that have a "A" instead of the "C" and wondered
if that might be my problem because this site says the iPhone 7 needs an "A".
https://www.sprint.com/content/dam/sprint/us/en/campaigns/byod/compatible-sims-2019/compatible-phones-sims.pdf

I have subsequently ordered and am waiting on the official Sprint SIM Kit hoping I will have better results.
I also wonder what validation Sprint does to determine a ICCID is valid or not.

So.. I have a Sanyo Taho by Kyocera. It is a sprint phone. Sprint BYOD accepts the IMEI but it wants me to enter the sim card number to add a line. It does not give an option to order sim card from sprint directly. It is an old flip phone and does not really need a sim. Settings does not show ICCID.

I have a few Kyocera Kona flip phones too. BYOD accepts the IMEI but needs sim card number. Which I don't have for it (and no way to put a sim card inside the phone either). No idea how to find ICCID

Any help?

ICCID = SIM CARD NUMBER. Without a SIM card there is no ICCID...

That is a known limitation in the web site for those old phones.

In general, just get the rep to add it for you (assuming it still can be added at all - see list of obsolete devices that can no longer be activated:

https://www.sprint.com/en/support/account/oma-slot/devices.html )

Actually it looks as if  some of the models you mention are on there and cannot be activated any more.

Found this thread hoping someone can assist. Just bought a Motorola G Stylus and trying to activate on Tello, which uses Sprint. I was advised by Tello to get SIMOLW516TQ *OR* SIMOLW416TQ.

I bought a Sprint BYOD 4-in-1 with a SIMOLW516TQ. But when I try to activate Tello is telling me the SIM is not compatible. It seems no one can tell me what SIM card this phone needs. 

A couple questions?: 

  • What SIM do I need? 
  • Do I need a SIMOLW416TQ? They seem hard to come by online, at least when searching on that term. 
  • Looking at the "BYOD Sim Guide by lilotimz.pdf" spreadsheet, I'm confused how many line items with "SIMOLW516TQ" as the BYOD Part # also list "SIMOLW416TQ" as the Primary or Secondary part number. Are these SIM cards actually the same? 

Appreciate any insight!

No problem. I'll find time to update the chart this weekend.

Been quite busy with the shelter in place stuff and being in the IT industry (busy busy busy).

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

In PDF style: here

To purchase the Sprint 4-in-1 BYOD Sim Card Kit: https://shop.sprint.com/mysprint/shop/accessory/ao_details.jsp?accSKU=121700244&accCatId=78300001&deviceIndependent=true

Contains: SIMOLW516TQ, SIMOLW506TQ, SIMOLW416Q, and SIMOLW506C


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

Can you add the Galaxy Z Flip 5G?

      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.
