So I have a Samsung 8 plus currently and I'm using Cricut as a service provider my phone is fully factory unlocked but I guess because of this 5G thing my phone isn't working anymore so I'm going to upgrade to the Samsung S10 was wondering if anyone has had an issue with the Samsung S10 connecting to the 5G or would I be okay getting it I've been told by a few other places I'll be good but just was wondering if anyone else could give me some advice or reassure me that it's good

Oh yep I see that oh boy I'm glad I didn't buy that when I might have to keep doing the research for some reason though eBay was saying that it does connect to 5G it was from Vietnam start up Northgate jailbroken or something I really don't know but I guess I'm going to keep looking if you happen to know the model number if you could help me with that I would really appreciate it
