Samsung S5 Active

I am considering picking up a S5 Active that is unlocked and without the sim card. I currently have the Kyocera Hydro for several years and time to update it but boost does not have a decent waterproof phone. Can this be done?

Re: Samsung S5 Active

A phone being "unlocked" means that its unlocked for GSM networks, which boost runs on CDMA. we can only use boost mobile phones, and some re-sku-able sprint devices

I have a hydro and am also trying to switch to a Sprint S5. I keep getting sent around from best buy,sprint, radioshack, and boost mobile store /customer service one to the other saying that the other other would have ia new sims card They already said i could switch i would just need to buy a new sims. Anyone know where to get the sims cards?

Contact Boost Mobile Customer Service for a replacement Sim card.

Go to net 10. They take both CDMA phones and GSM phones, awesome customer service, fantastic plans. A package that contains both sim cards cost 1.95 , you call them and you are hooked up. Look at all these posts. Millions of views rarely an answer. Obviously boost cares little about there customers to not respond on this site. Someone from corporate should be monitoring this site. Shame on boost for taking ppls hard earned money.

Net 10 is not a carrier, they do not have their own network, they use Verizon & AT&T, so you get what you pay for.  Boost is Sprint network and Sprint owned.
