The Note9 is certainly a fantastic device, Tyronewhiskey. You can check to see if it can be activated, using the Device ID, right here: Bring Your Own Phone or Device - BYOD

Thank you,

Thanks. How would I know before I purchase it?

No model number is listed for the Note 9, does that mean all are approved?

Actually it was listed on that list. It just wasn't in line with the model name. However if you count down in both columns, you will see the model number of Galaxy Note 9 is SM-N950U1. Unless the author of that list has it accidentally switched with the Note 8 model number. In that case, the model number is SM-N960U1.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I definitely want to make sure that you have the right expectation before purchasing that Note 9. I'm happy to shed some light. The only way to be absolutely certain that a phone hasn't been carrier locked and is fully compatible with our network is to get the IMEI number from the device that you are purchasing. The IMEI is available in the settings, about phone. You would enter that IMEI into the aforementioned "bring your own device" website we mentioned in the earlier post. Does this clarify?
