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.

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).

      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.

    • I just built this PoE and USB 3 upgraded WG3526 with an LM960 in it today   I am testing it on the two Kathrein antenna I put on my TrashMonster™ tower. It works great so far. I use 3 foot of LMR400 7/16 DIN male to SMA male. The cards are pretty on par with each other. They both get lots of aggregation combos, the Quectel is Eng samples only and the LM960 is on production revision 2, model A18 now. IMEI manipulation is more for Quectel if you need that for your plan, Telit I haven't figured that part out yet. The 960 is mPCIe so no adapters for most embedded router slots, the EM20 is M.2 so unless you get one of those fancy new routers I mentioned above you need an adapter. What other questions do you have for me?
    • How do you get your Verizon SIM to connect to LTE without active service? Mine will only connect to CDMA.       Pixel 2 can do NSG, but Pixels require a licensed/pay copy of NSG to band lock. Other phones supposedly don't. Google disables Qualcomm diagnostic mode, so NSG has to jump through some hoops to get it working. On the 4 they don't even include the driver for it, and you have to flash the userdebug vendor image every month. Pixels are fantastic for NSG and logging, except if you need to band lock and don't have a license. No other way to lock bands.   A lot of people in the NSG community really like one plus phones. They support a lot of bands, and play well with NSG. But I'm not sure how good Sprint support is with their older models (ie CDMA).   If band locking isn't super important to you, you could get a Pixel 3a since they're on sale. They support dual SIM, so you can log on two networks at once with Cellmapper. SCP doesn't support dual SIM yet, and seems to report data for the active data SIM. Neighbors will show both SIMs though usually.   Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk      
    • I use NSG SCP and Cellmapper on a bootloader unlocked rooted moto g7 power unlocked. New for $179 on Amazon (many models but can give a link if needed). Used on T-Mobile and AT&T. ..
    • Wifi calling uses your internet connection to route just the the call, not SMS or MMS (thanks Sprint....). VoLTE uses the carrier's LTE data connection to route the call and allows for SMS and MMS at the same time. When on a wifi call, you can still receive SMS and MMS but not if you have a shit cell signal (doesn't even matter if you are on a call or not, with a shit signal you will still have trouble anyway). The Pebble is used to boost your cell signal so your SMS and MMS will be more reliable (and your LTE data connection). For actual internet use, you are correct, you can just use your wifi.   Femtocell for the Home For the consumer, Femtocells can be used to transform an already existing internet connection into useable cellular service. It may sound counter-intuitive, but there are many people in the United States who have access to high-speed broadband but who are unable to make phone calls from anywhere inside their home, and for people facing that situation, femtocell technology may be their best option. Here’s why: Femtocells operate like a tiny cellular base station, literally tiny, at about the size of a cordless phone’s base station, and can be easily attached to your home internet network modem. The Femtocell then transforms your home broadband connection into a usable cellular signal that can be used to make phone calls and send and receive SMS text messages. In a scenario like this, a femtocell system may be the absolute best option, especially for consumers who are unable to utilize Wi-Fi calling with their current contacts and cellular provider. Most individuals, especially those who run a small business from their home, still require a reliable cellular signal in order to handle their affairs, and a Femtocell network can provide 5 bar connectivity from anywhere within the home. Unfortunately, this cellular connectivity does come at a cost. Because the Femtocell uses the existing broadband to create the cellular signal, there can be a noticeable loss of broadband speed in certain situations where phone calls and web browsing (especially uploading or downloading) behavior is occurring simultaneously. However, if your home office broadband connection is currently 50 Mbps or faster, then your internet connection should remain perfectly steady, even if you decide to use both at the same time.
