It is possible to buy Freedompop's 3 in 1 LTE Voice/Data SIM KIT, put that sim into the international version of a Galaxy S9, activate it as a BYOD, and have it work properly?

    Hello Dan! We need some clarification. It's important to understand that no matter what type of phone service you have, you will need a SIM card inside of your device. If you have GSM service, the SIM card will give your device it’s calling and texting capabilities. If you have CDMA service, the SIM card will give your device the ability to connect to the LTE network.

    This means that to be able to purchase a line with us, you can do so by purchasing the 4G LTE sim for unlocked GSM devices OR, if you have a CDMA locked to Sprint device, as a BYOD.

    If your device is a unlocked GSM device, and yo purchased our sim, you just need to download our app and set up your device's APN.
    Alright, that's helpful. However, is there a difference between acquiring the US version of the phone (Snapdragon processor) or the international version of the phone (Exynos processor), either one being purchased as "carrier unlocked"? If I were to get the international unlocked version, buy the Freedompop SIM & download the app, would I be able to connect to LTE, text & call without issue?
