    2018 List of universal, unlocked phones that work on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon

    This is the 2018 list of U.S. phone models that will work on all four major U.S. wireless networks - AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon (and most U.S. Mobile Virtual Network Operators or MVNOs). I think this is of interest to those who like to port in and out of different carriers without having to buy a new phone (and having to transfer data and settings to the new phone). These specific models contain the essential LTE bands used by these carriers and are also whitelisted for activation on Sprint and Verizon (which can block unapproved devices from working on their networks). Usually the newer or higher-priced models will have the most complete set of bands for all four carriers. The more complete set of bands a phone has, the better the coverage and data speed. Since these phones also work with most GSM carriers worldwide, the non-US LTE bands will be useful if traveling outside the U.S.

    The main LTE bands for the four major U.S. carriers are as follows:

    AT&T - LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12 (17), 14, 29, 30, 66 (band 17 is a subset of band 12; band 14 is mainly for public safety services; band 66 is new and not yet widely available)
    Sprint - LTE bands 25, 26, 41
    T-Mobile - LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 66, 71 (bands 66 and 71 are new and not yet widely available)
    Verizon - LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 13

    Specific models of Android phones listed below are unlocked models. iPhone models listed below are unlocked if bought as SIM-free models from Apple; if bought from a carrier, they can be officially unlocked once paid off and meeting other specific conditions of that carrier. If you buy these phones used, make sure they are fully paid off and unlocked and not blacklisted as lost or stolen. To check if a device has been blacklisted or reported as lost or stolen, use one or both of the following sites:

    **Samsung Galaxy S7 (Model SM-G930U), Galaxy S7 Edge (Model SM-G935U) - LTE Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 18, 20, 25, 26, 29, 30, 38, 39, 40, 41 (lacks AT&T band 14, AT&T/T-Mobile band 66 and T-Mobile band 71)

    NOTE: Carrier-specific Galaxy S8 and S8+ versions (sold by AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon), once paid off and unlocked, are now allowed to be activated on all four U.S. carriers since they contain the same hardware. You can insert any of the four carriers' SIM and the phone will automatically loads all the correct settings for that particular carrier. For those technically inclined, the unlocked versions can be flashed with carrier-specific ROMS.

    Due to lack of band 12 (essential for T-Mobile), I have decided not to include iPhone 5C, 5S, 6, and 6 Plus models in this 2018 list; they will still work on T-Mobile, just not as well as phones that have band 12. They are found in my previous posts on this subject:
    2017: https://www.howardforums.com/showthr...Mobile-Verizon
    2016: https://www.howardforums.com/showthr...iers-and-MVNOs

    Sprint and Verizon maintain their own lists of approved BYOD (bring your own device) phones, which include all the models listed above. However, their lists also include phones that are not universal and won't work on all four carriers.

    Updated lists of Verizon-certified BYOD phones are found at the following links:
    Apple: https://community.verizonwireless.com/docs/DOC-2874
    Android: https://community.verizonwireless.com/docs/DOC-2843
    and https://opendevelopment.verizonwirel...ype=Smartphone
    You can also check if a device is compatible with Verizon by using Verizon's IMEI checker here:
    https://www.verizonwireless.com/pros...e#/checkDevice
    If a phone supports all of Verizon's LTE bands but is not certified by Verizon, it won't activate on Verizon. However, people have reported that you can activate the SIM in a Verizon-branded or certified phone, then swap the SIM into the uncertified phone and it will work (but advanced features such as VoLTE may not work).

    Sprint has its own list of eligible BYOD phones here:
    https://www.sprint.com/en/landings/b...own-phone.html
    Scroll to FAQs about BYOD and click on How do I know if my device is eligible?. If a device is not on the list, you can check its eligibility using Sprint's IMEI checker or Ting's (Sprint MVNO) checker:
    https://www.sprint.com/en/shop/bring...o-sprint.html?
    https://ting.com/byod
    If a phone is paid off, and not reported as lost or stolen, but still fails Sprint's checker, it's possible that it was used on Project Fi or another Sprint MVNO and may require its ownership flag to be switched from PLBL to SPCS in Sprint's database before it can be activated on postpaid Sprint.

    Thanks for all the info!

    There are probably also other phone still available new, although older models, like some of the older iPhone models listed. An example would be the unlocked/universal LG G6 US997.

    LG G6 US997 lacks Sprint bands 26 and 41 and is not whitelisted for Sprint; however, it is compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.

    I did say in my post that I have excluded iPhone 5c, 5s, 6 and 6 Plus models from this year's list due to their lack of band 12, which is essential for T-Mobile; these phones were on the 2017 and 2016 lists.

    There are also several Sprint Android phones that have the essential bands for all four carriers but do not make the list because they are not whitelisted for Verizon. You cannot activate them on Verizon, but you can activate a Verizon SIM in a Verizon-branded or Verizon-certified phone, then swap the SIM into the uncertified (and unlocked) Sprint phone and it may work, although advanced features such as VoLTE may not work.

    Just today I had to manually look up the LG G6 (T-Mobile version) for it's compatibility and then I found this. My findings were verified and validated. Thank you for this.

    Thanks!! I wasn't aware that the unlocked LG-G6's I picked up at Wally would work on Verizon. I was gonna sell one but now I'm not so sure.

    Looks like you put some effort into formatting. Then for nitpick's sake, weird to see "Moto E4 or Moto E (4th gen)" when you don't do it for other Motos. Consistency counts.

    "Carrier compatibility" is a moving target. In 2-3 years, when B71 becomes TMO's heavy-lift band, most of these phones will be rendered obsolete, just as those phones you delist for not having B12. With that in mind, rather than having a yes-no compatibility list, may be a better idea to switch to a more flexible most-least compatibility format, with 3 carriers the requisite for "least" compatible.

    Looking ahead, "universal compatibility" will matter much less once every carrier puts up its own proprietary version of 5G. There's no way to include radios that can handle all proffered 5G bands. If you want 5G, it'll be a carrier phone. Time frame 2 years.
    My reason for listing the Moto E4 (and Moto X4) with different names is because in some places, these phones are referred to only as Moto E (4th gen.) and Moto X (4th gen.) exclusively, but yeah, I could have just juse the shorter monikers.

    My purpose in making this list is to highlight phones that give the user the freedom to move around on all four U.S. networks; that's what make these phone models special. They are meant to be used now. Mobile technology moves too fast to predict what will or will not happen in the future.

    I have my unlocked Moto 4G (XT1607) on Selectel, a Verizon MVNO. I had a TMobile SIM that enabled VoLTE but Verizon network doesn't allow software to use it.

    Sent from my Moto G Play using HoFo mobile app

    This list will be handy for me, too.

    I am in the market for a new phone right now. I want one that will work well on Verizon (Total Wireless) and AT&T, when I switch over. I figure that once AT&T/FirstNet has a footprint equal to or better than Verizon in my area of Minnesota, it will be time to switch!

    After removing the phones that don't have AT&T Band 14 and phones that aren't currently available yet, I get the following list of smartphones that will work on Verizon and AT&T, including Band 14.:



    Apple iPhone XR (Model A1984)

    Apple iPhone Xs (Model A1920), iPhone Xs Max (Model A1921)

    LG V35 ThinQ (Model V350ULM or LMV350ULM) -

    Motorola Moto G6 Play (Model PAA30001US, PAA30005US, aka XT1922-9 32GB) -

    Motorola Moto Z3 Play (Model PA9S0000US, PA9S0002US, aka XT1929-4 64GB) -

    Samsung Galaxy S9 (Model SM-G960U), Galaxy S9+ (Model SM-G965U), Galaxy Note9 (Model SM-N960U)

    iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X do NOT have LTE band 14, so you can remove these models from your list. However, there's a good chance Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3XL and LG V40 ThinQ will have band 14 once their final specs are revealed after they are released in October 2018.

    Good catch. Thank you. I have edited my post. I did read here https://www.firstnet.com/devices/1 , that the

    Samsung Galaxy S8 (Model SM-G950U), Galaxy S8+ (Model SM-G955U), Galaxy Note8 (Model SM-N950U)

    Does have LTE Band 14.

    There is also a link at the NIST pages that has a NIST List of Certified Devices.

    I did a cut and paste of the list of current Band 14 devices. Obviously, not all of them are "universal, unlocked phones that work on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon." Also, some aren't phones.

    _______________________________

    And the, after comparing those on the above list to the list of "universal, unlocked phones that work on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon" I am left with this:

    Apple iPhone SE (A1662)
    Apple iPhone 6S (A1633)
    Apple iPhone 6S Plus (A1634)
    Apple iPhone 7 (A1778)
    Apple iPhone 7 Plus (A1784)
    Apple iPhone 8 (A1905)
    Apple iPhone 8 Plus (A1897)
    Apple iPhone X (A1901)

    LG V35 ThinQ (LM-V350AWM)

    Motorola Mobility Moto G6 Play (XT-1922)

    Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930a)
    Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (SM-G935a)

    Samsung Galaxy S8 (SM-G950U)
    Samsung Galaxy S8+ (SM-G955U)

    Samsung Galaxy S9 (SM-G960U)
    Samsung Galaxy S9+ (SM-G965U)

    The "short" list basically means to me that if I want a "universal, unlocked phones that works on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon" and has AT&T LTE Band 14 (FirstNet), I go with a newer Apple iPhone, if I want iOS.

    If I want Android, I go with one of the newer LG, Motorola or Samsung phones.

    I would also like to get a phone that works with a Mophie or other battery pack case. I also like having one was a built in FM broadcast band receiver.

    2018 List Of Universal, Unlocked Phones That Work On AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon

    Someone with a Sonim XP8 has it unlocked and inserted an activated Verizon SIM card. It works on data, but not on voice. When LTE is disabled, it will make voice calls. Does anybody here have any idea why it would behave this way?
