I activated this phone with Boost Mobile in the Chicagoland area and it works great! I had to get a "special sim card/not in stores" which kind of sucked, but it was worth it. I went from a Galaxy S8 and it definitely feels like an upgrade. I was initially considering the Galaxy S20 FE, but it is twice as expensive and I have kids who always Crack my screen so didn't want to spend the $$$. The phone looks really nice and fits great in my hand. I've gotten so many compliments and some have even confused it with the S20 or IPhone 12 (bc of the cameras im assuming) it takes GREATTTT pictures and you can't beat the storage for this price, not forgetting you can still add a memory card. Highly recommended!
