Galaxy S9 ATT unlocked?

JUMP TO SOLUTION

My wife and I want to pre-order the S9.  I would like to get them as "unlocked".  We are currently with AT&T.  When i go through the purchase options, one of the options is for the phone to come registered with Sprint or Verizon, but not ATT.  Can I not get an unlocked ATT S9?  If not, we may switch to Sprint or Verizon as we would prefer an unlocked phone.  I just want to make sure that I can use the unlocked with ATT.

Buying the phone unlocked will work on At&t or any of the major us carriers.  Buying the At&t version on Samsung.com means it's carrier locked to At&t network.  I always buy unlocked and use on At&t without issue.  If you get the unlocked version Wi-Fi calling won't work.

Also want to add that if you ended up ordering an AT&T locked model to get those extra features the unlocked phone won't, you can get it unlocked later. As long as it's not financed through AT&T, you can request an unlock code 2 months after you start using them with your post paid account or 6 months on pre paid.

When you say wi-fi calling doesn't work on an unlocked S9, are you referring to apps such as WhatsApp or Google Hangouts?  And if yes, is this for all carriers or just ATT?

No, the ATT wifi calling service that allows you to use wifi signal to make calls if you're in a location that doesn't get good reception.
