Can Tracfone BYOP Use The Sprint Network?


Recently I told you about the new Tracfone Bring Your Own Smartphone SIM Kits. These new kits contain SIMs for Tracefone’s AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile networks, so they have now added the T-Mobile SIM into the $1 SIM kit. It also looks like these new SIMs can only be activated with a tracfone smartphone only plan and not the older triple talk, text, and data plans. For more details about that see my previous YouTube video.

One thing I notices when I was reviewing the new SIM kit is that one section of the kit says if you have a used or unlocked Sprint LTE phone you can activate skip the step of putting a SIM in the phone and proceed to activate it on tracfone.com.

I have never heard of tracfone supporting the Sprint network. The front of the package says it works with America Top Three 4G LTE networks, which would be Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. I know that other Tracfone brands, Straight Talk and Net10 can use the Sprint network. With those services, if you have a Sprint LTE phone, you use the Sprint SIM that is already in your phone, or should be if you are bringing a phone from Sprint. While Straight Talk sells SIM cards to use with their AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile networks they don’t offer Sprint SIM cards.

So I am wondering if Tracfone, like Straight Talk, also offers service on the Sprint network. At least it that’s what it looks like to me when I look at the new kit. To further confuse this, when I go to tracfone.com and walk through the steps to activate a Sprint phone, it tells me it’s not possible.

What about you? Are you using Tracfone’s Sprint network, or are you trying to find out more information about it? Leave a reply below and share..
