Google Nexus 6P by Huawei Activation Info


Recommended Posts

A sticking point for many Sprint users who have ordered a Nexus 5X / 6P will be the need to acquire a new 4FF nano UICC/SIM card running the CSIM activation program.  That can be a simple process or a difficult one.  We cover some of that discussion in The Wall article.  To help S4GRU readers obtain or purchase the correct Sprint "CSIM 4FF V5," we have posted below the relevant info for both Sprint and Best Buy Mobile.


Sprint (corporate store with repair center or international support online chat):


Part: SIMGLW446C


UPC: 019962040146


Best Buy Mobile:




UPC: 7000116


For activation of the Nexus 5X / 6P on Sprint, if you already have a compatible and activated 4FF nano SIM (such as from the HTC One M9, 2015 Moto X, et al.), you can reuse that CSIM in the Nexus 5X / 6P.  However, you first must add the Nexus 5X / 6P IMEI/MEID to your account.


The Sprint online activation tool had no difficulty with that process today, perfectly recognizing a 16 GB Nexus 5X, even including the proper handset image.  Any Nexus 5X / 6P purchased from the Google Store appears to be already whitelisted on Sprint.  As you add the Nexus 5X / 6P IMEI/MEID to your account, the online activation tool gives you the explicit option to reuse your current SIM.  You do not need to reenter the UICC ID.


With the Nexus 5X / 6P IMEI/MEID addition complete, you can power cycle the handset.  The hands free activation process will then start and successfully complete.
