    Unlocked Samsung GS8

    Looking to jump on the Samsung GS8 unlocked deal.
    Does anyone have any experience with the unlocked version on Sprint?
    Do you get all of sprints bands?
    How exactly would I activate it? Would I need a new sim card or can I use my current card in my S5?
    I've heard that updates are last for these unlocked phones?

    I have heard that there are no variants in the S8, according to what I read they are all the same, just locked or unlocked.

    As far as I have been able to verify, LTE on both B25 and B41 work.
    No B26 in my area so I have not been able to test this out, but I looking at my options now because I got chased out by T-Mobile so I'm shopping around and looking at either Sprint or Verizon Wireless.

    The unlocked model has all Sprint bands.

    I activated an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+ on Friday to take advantage of their Free Unlimited for a Year promo. I used the free SIM card Samsung sent with the phone. I didn't have any issues with activation.

    How can I tell which bands are active?

    Sorry for the late response. I'm on Sprint. I took advantage of their free unlimited for a year deal.

    Ok on a Samsung Device you can Dial *#0011# and or use Signal Check to see what Band your on.
