  1. I got mine approved just this morning and my claim was submitted on Saturday, 3/9/2019. My preorder date was 2/22/2019. Samsung said to expect the Buds around the middle of April.
  2. Yes, it will work just fine on Sprint. In fact, that's the exact model I have - 512GB Ceramic White GS10+. I went to a Sprint store & bought their 4-in-1 BYOP SIM kit. There are 4 different SIM cards inside the package. I used this one: SIMOLW516TQ
  3. Same thing for my Unlocked Galaxy S9+ - no options to toggle on VoLTE. Friggin lame of Sprint. I have the VoLTE option, however, on my Unlocked Galaxy S10+.
  4. That's great to know! Thx! I went to a corporate Sprint store & was initially told that they didn't have any & to come back tomorrow. When I said "Are you sure? Don't you have any for unlocked iPhone XS customers?", then they said they have the BYOP kit but it won't work inside the new S10+. After double-checking the BYOP kit packaging against the chart, I bought it anyways. Sprint store employees are a pain to deal with most of the time. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  5. The SIM card you bought at Best Buy...Was it the same one from that chart? SIMOLW516TQ??
  6. Are you upgrading from Unlocked GS9+ to Unlocked GS10+?
  7. Thx for the heads-up~! Downloading now.
  8. When I traded in my Sprint-model Galaxy S7 Edge ($300) for the Unlocked Galaxy S9+ at Best Buy last year, Best Buy processed the trade-in first then applied the $300 trade-in credit immediately toward the purchase price of the Galaxy S9+. I assume it will be the same way. With Best Buy, though, you want to do the trade-in preorder in-store and NOT online. Otherwise, they can't/won't process your trade-in. That's because when you preorder the phone through Best Buy online and they send you the email telling you to pick up the phone, they charge your credit card in advance. When you arrive in the store, they send you to the Pick-Up counter and not the Mobile counter. And when I told them that I have a trade-in, the person at the Pick-Up counter wasn't able to process the trade-in. When this happened to me last year, it was a BIG headache. I had to get the store manager involved and he had to do the following to make it right: (1) Refund my credit card first for the Online Preorder. (2) Refund my Gift Card amounts into a Best Buy gift card. (3) Return the Gift Certificate amount back to me. But since the refund isn't instantaneous, I couldn't use the Gift Certificate again. (4) Start over from the beginning at the Mobile counter and process my trade-in GS7 Edge first, re-apply my other Gift Cards, then charge my credit card. After this shitstorm mess, I learned NOT to do a trade-in preorder online anymore at Best Buy. Their staff, except for the manager, was incompetent and lacked communication & understanding skills.
  9. Both my Unlocked GS8+ and Unlocked GS9+ came with no SIM card. Each time so far I've had to purchase a new compatible SIM card. Sprint S7 Edge SIM didn't work in the Unlocked GS8+ and SIM card from Unlocked GS8+ didn't work with Unlocked GS9+. Sprint makes life unnecessarily more difficult when it comes to SIM cards.
  10. @lilotimz Do you know if we will need a new SIM for the Galaxy S10+ Unlocked model? Last year, I had to get a new SIM card for the Unlocked GS9+ and your table was very helpful.
  11. As for me, I'm only getting the 512GB model for the Ceramic White color option. I played around with the demo phones at Best Buy and Prism White was worse IRL than I expected.
  12. I have the Unlocked GS9+ and I got Beta 4 a few days ago.
  13. I don't think that trick works on our Unlocked model GS9+.
  14. How do I access that screen? I have a 965U1.
  15. So far so good. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  16. I got it this morning on my Unlocked Galaxy S9+.
  17. How do you know? Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  18. It's not officially supported but you can turn on Calling Plus. I'm using Calling Plus on both of my Unlocked Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy S9+ devices. Search my posts for the DIY tutorial if you're interested.
  19. I'm getting the exact same battery life that I got on my Galaxy S8+. Same apps, same settings, and same usage patterns. I turned off AOD and it resulted in big battery savings.
  20. Samsung is so slow. My Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact got the April 5th 2018 Security Patch yesterday. My Unlocked 965U1 is still on February.
  21. AFAIK, T-Mobile is the most up to date at the moment & it's the March patch. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  22. Here's a hotspot guide from XDA that might work for you: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=3763796 Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  23. The Hotspot hack still works on my Unlocked GS9+. I'm using it right now & typing from my Note 4 910C that's connected to the GS9+ hotspot. Sent from my SM-N910C using Tapatalk
  24. You mean you can't even edit the APN? Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  25. I briefly tested it the other day using my laptop and it worked. Is the workaround not working for you? I'll try it again later. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
