Missionary Android Phone Specs

Postby jmjosh90 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 11:31 pm

I am preparing to return to missionary service in the US, and have heard about/seen missionaries bringing their own android phones to use with special software included. Is there a list of phones that are allowed/compatibility requirements somwwhere? (I've heard rumors that they have to be Samsungs)

It depends on the mission. Your mission call should advise you of the details.

If you check with your mission office, they should have details. Your ward clerk will be able to provide you with contact information if you do not already have it. Welcome back.

My son is serving in the New Jersey mission (which is a tablet mission) and attend mission-wide training last week referring to the Samsung J2 phone.

This does NOT mean anything other than what I stated. I have no idea what mission policy is on the roll-out, only what he reported as communicated to their mission.

When my daughter left on her mission the instruction was to get a phone without a plan (I don't remember the exact terms) and the mission would add the sim card to activate the phone service.
