Nexus 5 - Can it be activated on a US CDMA and GSM network at the same time?
I'm currently still in contract with Sprint but am highly considering ditching them soon and considering going with a MVNO (AIO is what I'm considering at the moment). Later this month I'm going to a rural area where my sprint coverage sucks, so I'm considering activating an AIO SIM for use in the Nexus 5 to test the reception. Now my question, would it be possible to have the phone activated on Sprint (CDMA) and switch back and forth to activated AIO SIM?
I know 'World Phones' have this capability, but I have also heard of CDMA providers blocking US based SIMs. Seeing as this is an unlocked phone I can't imagine Sprint could then lock it to their network, but who knows what telcos will try to pull off. I would think with the clean ESN Sprint should activate it no problem and I should just be able to insert the GSM SIM as needed.
TLDR: Can the Nexus 5 be activated on CDMA and GSM at the same time in the US?
