I picked up one (Tribute HD) yesterday and it passed for ring plus. I bought the Boost Tribute 5 in August (same price). This won't pass FED check. (I'd prefer this one on Ring+). On this phone I'd tried to get the $20 credit for activation (fail), so they registered it with a phone #, but I never paid for time - so it not quite fully registered. Is that why I can't set it up on R+?

They didn't do anything. Sprint whitelisted this phone for whatever reason Sprint chose to do so. Been whitelisted for a few weeks IIRC.

Have they officially white-listed this phone or they have not come around to "lock" it to Sprint yet? Two different things. Don't know. It was only released in Oct 2016 so they could impose FED on it yet but like other phones could be grandfathered in before they get around to doing it. I had asked myself that question but i think people only care it works on R+. $20 gamble.
