Nexus 5 Prepaid
Want to buy the Nexus 5 at bestbuy tomorrow and then use the phone with one of the prepaid service cards there. Will bringing the phone home and unlocking it (unlocking the boot loader?) enable the phone to use data text and call with one of the prepaid cards? I would prefer sprint or boost mobile. And is there a way around having to get a new SIM card after unlocking the phone to be able to use it with a prepaid service? Just want to make sure I can unlock and setup the nexus 5 for prepaid before I spend the money.
Edit: Do I have to root the N5 to use the device with prepaid service, or just unlock the N5?

Re: Nexus 5 Prepaid
You don't need to root or unlock, the phone comes unlocked. Just get the SIM card from Sprint/Boost and get your account set up.Pat
