For those of you who haven’t heard, the latest Motorola Moto X Pure Android smartphone is an “all-carrier” phone that has GSM and CDMA radios to support all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon networks. Not only that, the Moto X Pure also has 4G LTE bands for all carriers, meaning you will be able to use it on any U.S. carrier.
When I first got my phone, I was able to get voice, data/4G LTE working on all AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon networks just fine simply by swapping out the nano-SIM. When I tried with my Sprint SIM, it didn’t work out of the box. I called Sprint to find out what was wrong but they told me I needed to get a new SIM card. I ordered a new SIM card on Amazon, thinking any new Sprint SIM card will work on the Moto X Pure. Well that didn’t work either.
I visited my local Sprint store and they told me this phone cannot be used on Sprint network as it’s not available yet for Sprint. After doing some online research, I found that you can get it working by using a SIM card from HTC One M9, which has the same frequencies as the Moto X Pure. The Sprint SIM card I needed had a part number of “SIMGLW446C”, which I was able to buy one for about $10 at my local Best Buy.
Finally, I was able to activate my Moto X Pure on Sprint network with everything working including voice, data, and 4G LTE. In all, it took me total of a whole week trying to get it working but it’s practically a mess out there as Motorola doesn’t tell you specifically which SIM card you need to get and Sprint agent/store rep are not all that knowledgeable in new phones that are not sold by Sprint.
