Hello! First of all, what a great community and forum. I’ve spent a few minutes searching the forum, but haven’t been able to find an answer to my specific situation. I’ve been thinking about making the switch to RW, but the only thing holding me back is the discrepancy between service being available in my area (96707), my phone being eligible for BYOP (Nexus 6), but BYOP support not being offered here.
Bottom line is, if I order a RW sim, am I still able to activate it from my zip code that does not support BYOP? Or would the system not even allow that? From reading the other posts, it seems like the reason the discrepancy between the phone being supported and there being service in my area, but no BYOP support offered is that the CDMA service is better here and currently RW only supports BYOP for GSM. I’m currently on another MVNO that uses T-mobile’s towers, so I know what to expect for the kind of service I would receive here, which is definitely satisfactory.
I just want to make sure that I will at least be able to try RW’s service out and not have wasted $5 on a sim card that is not even possible to activate for BYOP in my area.
Thanks for your time,
