Picking up this question I have a doubt: Can I flash a Customed G900F rom over my stock G900M ( I am from Costa Rica).? Is this secure on regards of Signal and other things that might put on risk my cell phone ?

thanks in advance for all the help.

So here's a question.... As anyone who has a gs5 on sprint network knows, you can't talk on your phone and use the internet at the same time unless using WiFi calling. Is there a way around that?
