I've been driving myself crazy trying to figure out what carrier will work my Note 3. I bought it for brand new for $300 form someone on cl. I've researched a lot but since I'm not on sprint i cant get it internationally unlocked to use it with gsm networks. So can I flash to use cricket or metro pcs without a sim card? And How would anybody do it themselves?

But I cant do this without first having an account with either of them right?
Cause as of right now, I dont have any carrier, would I have to open up an number?

Correct, you would need to set up service...can't just piggy-back on a network with a deactivated device.
