  • [VIDEO] Activating Samsung Galaxy S5 on Cricket Wireless

    This video does get a bit lengthy, but it's my first GSM activation on the new Cricket. I wanted to go from start to finish.

    At 7:15 you can see a speed test.

      To bad att holds down the network to 8mbps I could easily go over 20 in my area when connected to 4G. Just wished the Z2 wasn't so expensive.

      I dislike the fact that your current cricket galaxy s4 can not be converted to gsm

      I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 SIM/subsidy locked to MetroPCS. The IMEI is also bad/blocked/negative filed.

      What do I need to do to get it fully working on the NEW Cricket Wireless (gsm)?

      If you can unlock it without spending too much, I'd try that. Then pop in an active Cricket SIM to see if it will connect.
