Google play version. I'm sticking to TMO no matter what.

But the one I sold, the TMO version, I need to get it to work. did the factory reset and still nothing.

But don't the TMO devices come from Google. I'm pretty sure they get added too once they're made sitting in Google's warehouse and then TMO orders them and ships it to the stores.

then sprint needs to add the IMEI to their system to allow it on their network. Thats the only way it will work.

i think maybe tier 2 or 3 techs can do that, but dont quote me on that.
Go back to stock on your nexus 5 using this guide: here

Tired of paying too much money for your phone plan? go prepaid!

It's working guys. Just out of the blues.

TMO NX5's IMEI's do get added because they came from Google's warehouse like I predicted. I dunno if the factory reset changed anything tho. I guess it takes a few hours after a reset to activate.
