How do I check if I can bring my phone to Clarity Wireless?

Using your own phone with Clarity Wireless is fast, easy, and economical. If you want to bring your own phone, you’ll first need to check if your phone is compatible with the Clarity Wireless network and see if it’s unlocked. Some phones have network hardware that may not work well with Clarity Wireless network partners. We want you to have a great experience using our network, so if your phone isn’t compatible, we recommend an upgrade to a new Clarity phone. If your phone is locked, contact your current carrier to request unlocking.

What's an IMEI number?

The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is a unique 15-digit number that identifies a specific mobile device. IMEI numbers are issued by the GSM Association, which supports mobile operators and device makers. An IMEI number can be used to determine the device make and model, and whether the device is locked or unlocked. If a device has been lost or stolen, the IMEI can also be used to block it from being used on most carrier networks, including Clarity Wireless.

Why do you use the IMEI to check network compatibility?

Using the IMEI is the fastest and most accurate way for us to determine compatibility with Clarity Wireless network and check whether a device is locked or unlocked. Many phones appear to work the same way across different carriers, but they can have significant internal differences with their technology and software. By using your device IMEI, we can better understand the device’s capabilities on our network and see if it’s unlocked.

If my device is locked, how do I get it unlocked?

If your phone is locked, you’ll have to have it unlocked by the original carrier. In some cases, the phone may have a finance agreement that needs to be paid off before the carrier will unlock it. It may also take a few days to unlock the device.

Can I keep my existing phone number if I bring my own device?

Most phone numbers can be transferred to Clarity Wireless, but check the transfer eligibility of your existing number before switching to Clarity Wireless. After you've installed your new Clarity Wireless SIM, call us at 1-877-870-8901, visit or visit a Clarity Wireless store to complete the transfer process. To get started, you'll need the following information:

  • Previous wireless company name
  • Previous wireless account number
  • Previous account PIN
  • Existing phone number

We recommend backing up your contacts, voicemail, and text messages before transferring your number to Clarity Wireless. During the process, you may have dual service for up to 24 hours, meaning your device will be active on both carrier networks. Please do not cancel your previous wireless service until you receive a confirmation text message or e-mail from Clarity Wireless saying that the number transfer is complete.
