Default photon q sim modded now on to cricket..?

My photon q has been modded with the sim card slot. I have flashed it, rooted (running Cyanogen), and did the NV edit. For some reason when i put my sim card in it says no service...:l it recognizes a sim but it is stuck on CDMA instead of GSM. Ive heard a bunch of different ways to fix this..all seem extremely confusing! is there anyone who has a guide or tutorial on what to do from this point? Ill even ship it to someone to fix at this point, i just want this phone to work! XDA has been an awesome community for help and support I appreciate the help beforehand! Thanks!
