Nexus 5X simultaneous CDMA and Global SIM (GSM)

Elliot J LernerElliot J Lerner Posts: 5FreedomPop Newbie
I have a Nexus 5X currently without an active cell carrier, as well as a data only FreedomPop Global SIM. I was thinking of activating the Nexus 5X with FreedomPop, but my concern is the times I will be out of Sprint coverage or WiFi range. Does anyone know what is likely to happen if I pop the Global SIM into my FreedomPop (Sprint) activated Nexus 5X? Will the GSM radio with ATT/T-Mobile service override the Sprint CDMA service while the SIM is in place?

    You can just switch your phones mobile settings from cdma to gsm and back again. You will have to add/change the apn to get data services working but I had my Verizon s4 mini on Verizon while using a at&t sim every once in a while depending on the coverage. Also your phone may be a little more user friendly by saving apns but my phone would sometimes forget the apn when switching between sims and type of service (cdma/gsm). Google store has a app with most apns ready for copy/paste.
