Comcast's Xfinity Mobile finally lets Android users BYOD

Comcast's Xfinity Mobile is beginning to add bring-your-own-device options for the nearly half of smartphone users in the U.S. who don't own an iOS device. The company announced Tuesday that customers are now able to bring Android devices over to the service, and while the eligible Android phones are limited now, it expects to expand the list later this year. Customers who are already signed up for Comcast's cable or broadband service — Xfinity Mobile is only available to subscribers — can now bring their Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, S8, S8+ and both Note 9 and 8 models to its wireless service.
