The Boost Mobile triple SIM pack comes with SIMOLW416Q + SIMOLW506C + SIMOLW506TQ

From the Ting reference page, Moto G6 uses SIMOLW416Q.
From my reading, the SIMOLW- and SIMGLW- variants are made by different manufacturers, but interchangeable. So PEW's SIM #, and the one included in the kit, are really the same SIM.

I received the Boost triple pack today from ShopCellDeals. (Quick shipping and only $4.99) It has three separate SIM cards, one of which is the SIMOLW416Q. I checked the ICCID with the Ting BYOD site which said it is good to use. But when checking on Unreal Mobile's site it didn't validate the SIM card and told me to call their customer service.

Just to mention that I got on the "Unreal" Sprint plan some time ago using the SIMOLW416Q sim in my Moto G 5 S+ phone, and I don't recall having to call or contact anyone. And I believe the Moto G6 and my phone use the same Sprint sim, according to Ting. I got my sim on ebay.

Sounds like Sprint realized people were buying Boost SIMs for use outside of Boost and decided to flag those SIMs for Boost specifically. Just another way to inconvenience the customers. Hopefully T-Mobile will move everyone to GSM once they buy out Sprint, I mean merge.

That doesn't seem to be the case since Ting accepts the Boost SIM for its CDMA service.

The question is why Unreal is having an issue.

It just occurred to me that "Unreal" has been for some time been pushing the $10 and above GSM plan, and if I not mistaken, there has been little if anything said about the$10 Sprint plan offer, which I suppose is because the GSM $10 VOIP plan, while not a good deal imo, is much more profitable for Unreal than the great Sprint deal. Hence, even if your sim is just fine, Unreal wants to talk to you and try to get you on the GSM plan rather than the Sprint plan.That's my speculation, anyway.

Disregard my above issue with Unreal. I went through the signup process again this morning and was able to successfully activate new service on the Sprint network with Unreal using the Boost SIM. Not sure what the glitch was last evening.
