    Do you anticpate allowing BYOP?  At least for people that are already on Verizon?

    BYOP will be added in the future, however there is not a time frame currently available.  The link provided above will have the most current information when BYOP becomes available as well as available devices.

    Any update on bring your own phone (BYOP) availability?  I'm ready to switch as soon as this capability is available!

    Would love to go from Verizon to Spectrum, but having four phones in the family, no BYOD is a no go.

    Same.  Just waiting on byop support and I'll ditch verizon.  don't want to rebuy phones again after just getting new ones this year.

    Ditto.  4 users.  Buying 4 new phones makes no sense.  I hope this restriction is temporary while they work out the bugs. Otherwise, I can't see how the service grows at a profitable rate.

    I have an Unlocked by Samsung® Note 9 and an unlocked SIM-free iPhone 7 Plus. I would like to bring them to Spectrum Mobile.
