Anyone have actual experience whether Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G Unlocked will work on Xfinity Mobile?

Hi there, William! Thanks for finding your way onto our forums!

Although I haven't tried it for myself, I believe that an Unlocked Galaxy S20 FE 5G should work fine on Xfinity Mobile.

The S20 FE 5G is hardware compatible with the network bands used by all major US carriers, including Verizon. In case you didn't know, Xfinity Mobile falls back on Verizon when out of range of Xfinity Wi-Fi hotspots.

After getting your phone and signing up for an Xfinity Mobile plan, they'll mail you a SIM card and assist with the device setup.

Hope this helps!

PS. Great choice on the S20 FE 5G, by the way! We recently selected it as one of the Best Used Android Pones in 2021.

Here's the link to Xfinity's IMEI checker, to determine compatibility:

Will Verduzco. Just another data point on this question. Xfinity is weird. l didn't know this could even be an issue, however l purchased a S20 FE 5G phone from a Swappa seller, rush shipped it to take advantage of a Xfinity promo only to find the phone is NOT compatible with Xfinity, even though it IS compatible with Verizon.

Now I have to pay shipping back + a restocking fee and still don't have a working phone.

Definitely use the link Nathan A. posted to check the phone's IMEI: https://www.xfinity.com/mobile/byod/compatibility/device

Thank you for the clarification and additional data point, Greg.

I am sorry to hear that your unlocked device was somehow deemed incompatible by Xfinity Mobile. I was not aware that this would be a concern on Galaxy S20 devices if they were purchased as unlocked.

Hey I know this is a bit old, but that IMEI checker isn’t 100% comprehensive for android devices. Many android devices that work without a hitch don’t come back as compatible.

If an newer (Samsung, Motorola, LG, Pixel) “android” device isn’t working immediately it could simply require: • manually updating your APN SETTINGS to xfinity mobile’s current APN(Google searching settings will suffice)

Alternatively if you have an xfinity mobile device already. Resetting that XM (android ) device with the SIM in it then moving that sim to new android will transfer the correct APN settings.

Note: rarely- I’ve seen situations with OPPO devices too.. usually involves calling Verizon/xfinity in order to toggle CMDA-Less messaging on.
