    What’s the phone model? GSM? CDMA? Most easy way is to put a sim from another carrier in the device

    Thanks for your replies. I opened this thread for the phones not in my hand.

    Before buying the phone, I want to make sure it was unlocked. There are some pre-paid phones comes as unlocked.

    Are there any apps in smart phones to use for CDMA, GSM, LTE kind ?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Not that I’m aware of. Only way I know is popping in a sim that’s from a different network.

    Don’t buy CDMA phones unless your using it on its original carrier.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I am not able to find SPRINT LG Tribute Dynasty in Bestbuy. I did find Boost LG Tribute Dynasty at Walmart for 49.00.

    I used the IMEI on the box to run by Swappa in my smartphone. It

    Cleared for blacklist and said activation ready.

    I am not sure, whether it means unlocked and use able with other carrier.

    I did the same with Tello Imei checker on my phone, it throws:

    Oops! Your IMEI might not be correct or your phone is not Tello compatible
    Why am I getting different results?

    Thanks for sharing

    Swappa is just saying it’s clear and not lost, unpaid, or stolen. Meaning it’ll work on it’s desired carrier.

    Tello you would need to use the phone on boost for 6 months - a year to be able to use it on tello
