I'm looking to buy a Dev edition Verizon S5. My network is bluegrass cellular which is a small carrier that piggybacks off of the Verizon towers. My question is if I purchase this phone will it work with my network? My net uses Sim cards and I miss the days when putting it in the phone was all it took haha. The phone my network sells specifically is the SM-G900R6 which I'm guessing will have almost 0 Dev support and I seriously miss rooting and aokp and cyanogenmod ect

Well, if you have a Bluegrass Phone, and Bluegrass SIM, then I do not see why it wouldn't run the 4G if that is something your carrier offers. If Verizon has the 4G there, and your carrier offers it as an option, then I would think you will be fine.

Nah I'm saying I'd purchase a Verizon phone and was asking if the 4g would work Verizon phone with bluegrass Sim but I checked the thread over there someones using a tmo Sim and their 4g is fully functional so I'm guessing mine will be fine too. Thanks!

If you need any help with the SM-G900R6 just msg me.

Here is the stock firmware that came on mine
