Select Android Devices for BYOD Now Supported by Spectrum Mobile

Back in December, Spectrum Mobile opened the option to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) for specific Apple iPhone models. Now, it looks like they are allowing select Android devices for BYOD into their network. 

In particular, the Android models that are compatible with the network include the following:

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
  • Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10+
  • Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S10e

Carrier-branded models other than Verizon are required to be unlocked before they can be used with Spectrum Mobile.

Today's news addresses the concern of Spectrum Mobile customers who have been waiting for the MVNO to provide support for Android devices. Ever since the Charter-owned company unveiled support for iPhone devices, customers have been adamant on the network providing support for Android devices too.

There was even a slight confusion on this since there was a mistake on Spectrum's website that showed BYOD support was available to everyone. The Verizon MVNO quickly remedied this mistake and corrected the information on the page.

Although Spectrum Mobile's BYOD support for Android devices doesn't seem to be too much right now, it's a step in the right direction. Hopefully, the MVNO will make this option available to more Android models in the future.

    Yeah hopefully. Rates need to get better also for a wifi pushing service....😬😬

  2. This is not actually BYOD - to say so is false advertising. Worse yet, it insults your potential customer base. First of all BYOD means "bring your own device" and not "bring only iphones or galaxy smartphones" Honestly, just give me a break. I have a Moto unlocked phone, currently on Verizon network, so I know it works just fine.

    If your tech support team lacks the ability to port my device, that should be made clearer upfront, instead of making potential users dig for that information. You are misleading future customers and wasting our time. Not a good customer experience.

    If you need to be told what to say in your advertising, try "BYOD (some iphones and some samsung phones)", which is more truthful, and less insulting.
