    2019-2020 List of universal, unlocked phones for AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint

    This is the up-to-date list of universal U.S. smartphone 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), current as of September 2019. I hope to post updates to this list as new phones are released from now until August 2020. If the Sprint/T-Mobile merger do go through, this list will exand significantly since there are many models that are compatible with 3 of the 4 carriers. 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 fully working on their networks).

    NOTE: Some carrier features such as VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling may not work on unlocked devices that did not come from the carriers (except for iPhones). If you are satisfied with a carrier and don't plan to switch carriers, stick with that carrier's branded devices to have all features enabled (or use iPhones).

    Most carrier-branded devices are not completely compatible with the other three networks due to lacking LTE bands, having certain LTE bands disabled, and/or not having both CDMA/GSM support. The exceptions are carrier-bought Apple iPhones and select postpaid flagship Samsung devices, which have all the essential LTE bands and are compatible (i.e. approved for use) with all four U.S. carriers once they are paid off and unlocked (with some exceptions detailed below).

    Android phone models listed below are unlocked models not sold by carriers (unless otherwise noted). iPhone models listed below are unlocked if bought as SIM-free models from Apple; if bought as a carrier model, they can be officially unlocked once paid off and meeting other specific conditions of the carrier.

    The 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
    Sprint - LTE bands 25, 26, 41
    T-Mobile - LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 66, 71
    Verizon - LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 13, 66

    Usually the newer or higher-specs 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. Bands 14, 66 and 71 are newer and therefore not available in older or lower-specs devices (band 71 will be important for T-Mobile coverage once fully deployed). Band 17 is subset of band 12 so if a phone has band 12, it does not need to have band 17 for full support on AT&T. Since these phones also work with most GSM carriers worldwide, the non-U.S. LTE bands will be useful if traveling outside the U.S.

    NOTE: As of September 2019, Samsung has enabled "carrier switching/rebranding" for postpaid carrier models of Galaxy S8, S8+, S9, S9+, Note8, and Note9 (Galaxy S10 and Note10 models do not have this feature yet but are expected to get it eventually; prepaid models are excluded). Samsung calls it "BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) experience." Normally, carrier-specific Samsung devices do not have all available LTE bands enabled. However, with this feature enabled, a paid-off and unlocked carrier model can be "rebranded" with the appropriate carrier firmware and features (and bloatware) based on the postpaid SIM currently in the phone. For example, if you insert an AT&T SIM into an unlocked Verizon Galaxy S8 and reboot it, the software will automatically update to rebrand it into an AT&T Galaxy S8 (with the correct LTE bands enabled) and all AT&T carrier features such as VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling will work. On the other hand, an "Unlocked by Samsung" Galaxy S8 does not have this "carrier-rebranding" ability and certain features such as VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling may not be supported on all carriers.
    More info here: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00078492/


    Sprint and Verizon maintain their own lists of approved BYOD (bring your own device) phones, which include the phones listed above. However, their lists also include phones that are not universal.

    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
    Android: https://opendevelopment.verizonwirel...pes=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, many 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 certain features such as VoLTE or Wi-Fi Calling may not work).

    Sprint has a list of approved BYOD phones here:
    https://community.sprint.com/t5/Devi...t/ta-p/1020211
    Sprint calls the directly-unlocked Samsung models "Special Edition." If your device is not listed, 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
    The SIM-swap method (as described above for Verizon) does NOT work with Sprint (or Sprint MVNOs) because on Sprint's system, each SIM card is tied to a specific device. To swap to a new device, you have to make a request with Sprint (or Sprint MVNO) and the new device must have its own SIM.

    A trio of low- and mid-priced Samsung devices, previously only available as carrier models, now available for preorder as "Unlocked by Samsung" GSM/CDMA models as listed below; to be released on Sept 20, 2019. Make sure to pay attention to the model numbers since there are several carrier variants and dual-SIM international versions. Full list of LTE bands not yet available (as far as I can tell).

    **Samsung Galaxy A10e (Model SM-A102UZKAXAA): based on FCC filings, contains at least LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 17, 25, 26, 30, 38, 41, 66, 71 (may have additional non-US bands that are useful for international use)

    **Samsung Galaxy A20 (Model SM-A205UZKAXAA): based on FCC filings, contains at least LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 38, 41, 66, 71 (may have additional non-US bands that are useful for international use)

    **Samsung Galaxy A50 (Model SM-A505UZKNXAA): based on FCC filings, contains at least LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 38, 41, 66, 71 (may have additional non-US bands that are useful for international use)

    Unlocked Samsung specs here:

    http://samsung.com/us/mobile/phones/...ked+by+Samsung

    A10e: B2,3,4,5,7,13,20,28,66

    A50: B2,3,4,5,7,13,20,28,66

    No A20 shown as yet.

    Based on the above, they are barely compatible, let alone be universal.

    That’s an error. Somebody just copied and pasted the LTE specs for the Verizon model. Having searched for LTE specs for many phones, I have found errors from Samsung, LG, Motorola, etc. I always cross check the specs with multiple sources, including FCC filings. However, FCC filings do not list the entire set of LTE bands, only those that are tested for US market.

    >That’s an error. Somebody just copied and pasted the LTE specs for the Verizon model.

    If it's an error, then it's one that's been widely propagated. If you search on the model number, there are already merchants selling the "unlocked by Samsung" A50, and all of them list the same LTE specs as the Samsung site. The theory of a copy-paste error doesn't hold water unless they all pull info from the Samsung site.

    FCC listings aren't the final word. There've been many instances where differences exist between that and the retail model, including where there is no retail model.

    So, yes, it may very well be a mistake. But given that it's straight from the manufacturer, you have to give the specs credence until you can prove otherwise.

    2019-2020 List Of Universal, Unlocked Smartphones For AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint

    Thank you for preparing another list.

    I have been following some other smartphones lately, like the Ulefone Armor 3WT, Getnord Lynx and Blackview BV9800 Pro. How do these stack up against the ones on your list?

    They probably don't have the extended bands 66 and 71 or 28 and 30.

    But if that doesn't bother you, this phone is available on Amazon for $203 right now

    UMIDIGI S3 PRO Unlocked Smartphone Android 9.0 48MP+12MP+20MP Super Camera 5150mAh Big Power 128GB+6GB RAM 6.3" FHD+ Ceramic Global Version https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NJK84LQ..._givIDbX6X7SE5

    Works with Verizon if you sim swap. Maybe Sprint but I don't know anyone who has tried it.

    Samsung Galaxy Fold U.S. version should be available in a few days at Best Buy for $1980 and is universally unlocked.

    So who's going to pull the trigger?

    Well, I was considering getting this $1,979.99 Samsung Galaxy Fold SM-F900U as a replacement for my $30 Moto E4 XT1768, but I'm not sure if it would be enough of an upgrade, so I've decided to hold off.

    You are holding off because you prefer something that folds outward like the Huawei $2600 folding phone.

    I'm not familiar with these phones. Looks like they are rugged Chinese Android phones meant for those who want phones with big batteries and tough construction to withstand the elements or rough working environments.

    **Samsung Galaxy Fold (Model SM-F900UZKDXAA, SM-F900UZSDXAA) - LTE Bands should be the same as those in the Galaxy S10/Note10 models.

    Here's another case of Samsung being sloppy. On Samsung's website for the Galaxy Fold, the list of LTE bands for the unlocked model was apparently copied and pasted from the AT&T model's specs sheet and lacks band 13 (required for Verizon), bands 25 & 26 (required for Sprint) and band 71 (used by T-Mobile). Since the unlocked model is certified to be compatible with all 4 U.S. carriers, it should not lack any of these bands. Indeed, the FCC filings show that it has all these bands (see circled area in attached image). Verizon also lists band 13 in its certification listing for this phone.
