    Can a phone be brought to Cricket if its SIM is not accessible?

    I'm looking forward to the Galaxy S6 coming out in a week but I'm concerned that the Cricket version of it might be watered down like the Cricket version of the S4 was. Unfortunately the back of the S6 is not removeable, so the SIM is inaccessible. If I were to buy an AT&T or unlocked phone, should it be able to be activated on Cricket?

    What are the criteria to know if a phone can be activated on the new GSM Cricket service?

    It will probably be like the iPhone, with a little SIM slot in the side that is removable with a special tool. AT&T GSM phones are easily activated on Cricket. I have had both the Cricket and the AT&T S4s, and I didn't find any water. I do think the AT&T has more bloatware on than the Cricket, if that's what you mean.

    Now that you mentioned it I double checked the specs. I knew some carriers got better hardware than others but it seems AT&T's is nearly identical to cricket's cdma one except in antennas and more options on internal memory.

    Maybe I have nothing to worry about on the s6.

    I asked the salespeople at Best Buy today (the folks at the Cricket store had no idea since they haven't actually seen the s6 yet) and they said the sim card has a little slot that's accessible.
