Can I Use a Boost Mobile Phone on Verizon?

Posted by Ryan Davis on 4/24/2020
A Boost Mobile Phone cannot be used on or taken to a Verizon Wireless Store or Carrier and be used on Verizon Networks.  First off places like boost want to gain customers so they will give customers a phone for far less then what it costs them and they will lock the phone (Carrier Subsidy Lock) so it cannot be used on another carriers service some savvy customers have found that they can unlock a boost mobile phone and take it to sprint or ting and it will sometimes work, Why? Because Ting, Republic Wireless and other Sprint MVNOs Use Sprint Network so theres really no difference here you will be on the sprint network regardless using the Same Bands (Frequencies)
Taking your Verizon Wireless (Or Other Carrier SIM) Will not work in that Boost Mobile Phone as the frequencies that boost uses are not the same as Verizon.  Listed Below are the carriers and Bands, (Frequencies) they operate on

So just because someone tells you a phone is "Unlocked" and it will work on any carrier does not mean it is true, The Phone Must use the same bands and frequencies and the phone must be unlocked by the original company that sold the phone
