    I made the mistake of not meeting at the Verizon store and bought a Galaxy S3 off Craigslist. It has a clean esn but it won't read the 4G sim card or connect the Verizon data network. I found out it was flashed to Cricket so I used Odin to flash it back to the original rom that came with the version of the phone which changed it to Baseband version: I535VRLEC but this still won't work it still has the same problem reading the Verizon 4G sim

    I guess my question is... if there is a different rom I should flash it too? Or is it that once it has been flashed from Verizon to Cricket it can't flashed back to be used on Verizon again?

    Are you positive that the phone was originally on Verizon and flashed to Cricket? Everything I've found says the two networks are not compatible.

    Yeah it's definitely a Verizon phone and I was able to get in contact with the guy who I got it from and he said it was flashed to Cricket.

    Are you sure the SIM card is good?

    I know that after a period of time of inactivity, the Verizon 4G SIM cards get "de-registered" (10 days maybe?), and you have to get a new one. Even if you think the SIM is good, at the very least, I'd go a Verizon store and try a new SIM.

    Baseband looks wrong. Download the latest Verizon baseband.
