    Anyone know how to unlock GS4 for Cricket (CDMA) to GSM (AT&T) I want to switch networks because the cricket network in my area is HORRIBLE, however AT&T's 4G LTE is kickass. I've been looking for a solution for the past 3 days regarding this issue. I know that most phones that are CDMA are required to be "Flashed" to another network that's CDMA compatible. Whats interesting is that my GS4 (Cricket) accepts SIM cards or at least it seems like it does, I don't have extensive knowledge on this however I am an IT guy and know my in's and out's.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
    I too would like to know this also, especially concerning the buyout by att. I don't want to have to buy another phone if I already bought this one. Just want to see what my options are, tmobile, straight talk, MetroPCS etc. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    If it is unlocked then it would work on tmobile. Keep in mind certain features like wifi calling won't work on tmobile with the att s4.

    Am curious to know if you will be able to receive 4G LTE from other carriers, or are you limited to 3G only?

    The Verizon s4 has bands 4 and 13. TMobile primary lte is band 4 and att also uses band 4 lte in very limited deployment. So you will get LTE on AT&T and T-Mobile where band 4 is deployed. Att also uses bands 2,5,and primarily 17,which this phone doesn't support. TMobile will deploy bands 2 and 12 lte soon, which this phone won't support. Of note, no current tmobile phones support band 12 either.

    I have Verizon Samsung S4 and I will be going to Costa Rica at the end of the month (6-14). What will I need to do to use a local SIM card I can get at airport upon arrival for calling, and Text. Data too or is it just as easy to use the WIFI function and desengage mobile data??
    Thanks in advance-Bob

    VZW unlock if switching sim and apn doesn't work..

    Enter Phone Menu..

    *#27663368378#
    [1]UMTS
    [2]DEBUG
    [6]PHONE CONTROL
    [6]NETWORK LOCK
    [3]PERSOSHA256 OFF
    MENU > BACK 3 TIMES.. [UMTS MAIN MENU]

    If it says GOLDEN-BACKUP exists..

    [4]RESTORE BACK-UP

    REBOOT

    UNLOCKED.
    I type the number from the dial phone number menu and nothing happens. I even hit the green call button and it just dials it like a normal phone call.

    Is there something I missed?

    About phone says I have:

    Putting in the sim should get calls and texts working. If you need data then you need the carrier's apn, which you can manually enter. You can disable data and use just wifi if desired

    How can I verify if my phone is actually unlocked? I asked Verizon and they said they didn't see that it was locked to any carrier, but they didn't say if it was unlocked or not.

    You can pop in a Tmobile prepaid sim, and it should connect.

    Correct. I don't have an s4,but it works on my Verizon Rezound, s3,note 2, and Note 3, all work on tmobile. No reason why it won't work on the s4.

    My daughter gave me her Verizon Samsung S4 but I'm on Cricket. Can I just buy the correct sim card from Cricket and use this phone? I am seeing mixed messages on whether a verizon will work on the cricket network. I did find that I can switch to the GMS network and hearing that the phone should already be unlocked....just hate to spend money on it if it isn't going to work. HELPPPP.
