    Unlocked Phone?

    Hey guys

    Trying to figure out which carrier my Samsung Galaxy S10E came from because I bought it off a eBay seller which stated it’s an unlocked phone but appears the listing said it will work on any GSM provider. However when I put a Xfinity sim in there it gave me data coverage with voice signal but just yesterday I tried a tracfone att SIM card and it didn’t give me any data but gave me voice coverage. Is there a way to find out which carrier the phone belongs to?

    When I restart the phone it says Xfinity but I don’t recall it saying that when I first got it

    Which implies it's universal unlocked. Could be just the apn on the TF/att side. Sometimes when swapping sims between carriers the apn doesn't change.

    Does it say Xfinity only with the Xfinity SIM installed? What does it say with the TF/AT&T SIM? What is the name of the APN?
