I wish to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active G870A

Customer Question
I wish to purchase...

I wish to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active G870A (Refurbished) at $199.74 advertised by Amazon, but I wish to know if is unlocked and compatible to AT&T.,

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your Samsung? And what operating system are you running?

It is the Samsung S5 Active G870A. I'll have it operated under Tracfone with air time.

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I haven't purchase it yet. I want to know if what I am buying is unlocked, as Tracfone was asking.,

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

That's it.

Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Is the phone "Samsung Galaxy S5 Active G870A 16GB AT&T Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Quad-Core Phone w/ 16MP Camera - Camo Green (Certified Refurbished)" at the Amazon website below?

https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-Active-Unlocked-Quad-Core/dp/B018TUJB7U/

- If yes, then since the phone is unlocked, it will work with AT&T, and Tracfone and with all other carriers.

Please type at the box below, then click on the Send button below to communicate with me, so I can help further. Thank you,

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
