    Verizon S3 Activation Problems

    Okay I'm not sure if this is a previous question but I could not find anything on this.

    So I fully flashed my Verizon Galaxy S3 over to Cricket no problems. But when I go to the cricket store they tell me that they can not activate my phone without the iccid, but since I bought the phone off ebay it did not come with a simcard thus no iccid.

    I'm wondering do I need a sim to activate my phone or if there some way to get it activated without a sim, I really do not have the money to go buy a new s3 from cricket.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

    You should be able to get a new one since I figure if you ever damage your sim you would think they would be able to replace it so you should be able to

    I thought the same thing but they refuse to even sell me a sim.
    Also I told the guy there that I did not want 4g and he kept telling me that 4g is the only service I can have on the s3, which I know is not true since my sister has a vzw s3 she flashed and they activated without a sim with no problems.

    welcome to cricketusers! sorry to hear about your problems, you do not need a sim card. just convert your IMEI to an ESN using any of the online tools available from google, then the cricket system will no longer ask for the SIM card number.

    Thank you Indica I will be taking my phone along with the converted MEID to a cricket store tomorrow and hopefully I will not need to pull anymore hair out.
