    Just curious if Boost Mobile peeps or cell experts could answer this:

    Will the Sim-Free version of the iPhone SE work on Boost Mobile? Or will Boost Mobile only activate their own/Sprint versions?

    I like their $30 plan with unlim talk/text + 2gb of data (grows to 5gb with on-time payments) + free tethering included, but not if I have to buy a Sprint/Boost mobile version of the SE to get it :(

    Thank you for your help.

    Sprint has Bring your own iPhone nowadays so it's not a problem adding non-Sprint IMEI/MEIDs to their whitelist, but not sure how it applies to prepaid like Boost. You can technically use the Apple unlocked/ATT/Verizon/T-Mobile model on Boost, but you'll be missing band 41 for LTE.
