Will the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 work on MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operator)

Most MVNO carriers rely on the primary carrier to support certain bands; therefore, support and compatibility will heavily depend on the network it’s powered by and uses. For example, Google Fi uses T-Mobile and US Cellular and doesn’t rely on its own network equipment. Google simply pays a fee to use the network’s bandwidth to support its own customers at its own prices. Of course, this could get a lot more complex as there are many more things involved, but MVNO’s work similarly to this.

In some instances, the leading carriers may not allow some of their partners to use certain bands due to one reason or another, which is why we would strongly encourage you to check with your network operator before committing to a plan.

    The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G is the latest foldable flagship from Samsung. It has an IPX8 certificate, supports the S Pen, and comes with the powerful Snapdragon 888 chipset.
