Are older devices compatible with VoLTE?

Some older devices may not be compatible with VoLTE. 

Is your device compatible with one of our networks?

Devices that work with AT&T and T-Mobile are typically GSM devices, while those that work with Sprint or Verizon are usually CDMA devices. However, newer unlocked iPhones can operate on any network because they support both GSM and CDMA.

What devices will NOT work with this service?

We accommodate many devices, but certain ones are exceptions. Specifically, the following are not supported:

  • Devices locked to Tracfone.
  • Devices branded by Boost/Virgin Mobile.
  • Devices reported as lost or stolen.
  • Devices flagged for fraud.
  • Devices currently under contract with another carrier.
  • Devices linked to accounts with outstanding payments to a carrier.
