    Makes sense, some other Sprint MVNOs can BYOD a few non Sprint phones, good to see Boost following.

    So far, iPhones only. But hope they open up more. Service is the bread and butter, Who cares where your phone came from if it's compatible.

    That would be like if Shell, only sold gas to Ford vehicles. They would be out of business.

    Exactly, there's no reason Boost (and Virgin Mobile which also has strict BYOD) couldn't activate unlocked CDMA phones like Nexus, Pixel, Moto G, Moto X, and Moto Z.

    While CDMA is more restrictive, those phones are in Sprints database and some other Sprint MVNOs will activate them.

    Does Boost allow Virgin Mobile phones to be used on their system ?

    MetroPCS is enticing for this very reason.

    I noticed the Note 4 is removed from the list again. Why do they add phones then remove them and repeat?

    You can bring the US version unlocked S7 and S7 Edge now. Model numbers SM-G930U (for the S7) or SM-G935U (for the Edge).

    That's still an awful short list of non-Sprint phones... only iPhones, S7, and Moto G4.
