    Samsung smartphones are now compatible with Xfinity Mobile's bring your own device (BYOD) plan, the company announced on Tuesday. The Verizon-based Comcast wireless service now accepts unlocked Galaxy Note 9, S9S9 PlusNote 8, S8 and S8 Plus phones. It expects to expand the plan to more Android devices “later in 2019”. The Galaxy S10, and possibly the Galaxy Note 10 as well, should also be eligible by then.

    Xfinity Mobile now supports Samsung phones

    Announced in April 2017, Xfinity Mobile is a mobile virtual network that runs on a combination of Comcast's 18 million Wi-Fi hotspots and the Verizon Wireless network. The service is available to Xfinity Internet customers with up to five lines of unlimited nationwide talk and text. The service was so far limited only to the iPhone 6 and above. It has now arrived for Samsung devices, with early adopters getting special benefits.

    Customers who bring their eligible Samsung phone to the network between July 16 and August 4 will get a $100 prepaid gift card. However, to claim the gift card, you must port in an existing number and remain an Xfinity Mobile customer for at least 90 days. Those who don't own an eligible phone can also trade-in their device for a gift card from the company and switch to one of the phones it is selling, such as the Galaxy S10, Galaxy A50, and many others.

    Xfinity Mobile charges no line access fees on up to five phone lines, and also proves unlimited calls and text messages. However, you only get 100MB of shared data across the five devices. Additional data costs $12 per GB, or $45 per month for unlimited data capped at 20GB.
