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.

    • Definitely agree. I'd honestly be satisfied if T-Mobile announced that they were deploying mmWave in targeted locations like airports and stadiums nationwide. Right now it still seems like they've stopped working altogether on expanding mmWave coverage with the exception of installing it at Raymond James Stadium and Tampa International Airport for the Super Bowl. Maybe they're holding out until new antennas and phones come out that support 24GHz and 47GHz spectrum since that's where the majority of their mmWave spectrum is here in NYC. Though there is nothing stopping them from deploying the 400MHz of n260 that they own here. I ran about 5 tests at this site but this was the only test with any packet loss. All with around 70ms pings. Even my mmWave speed tests in Brooklyn show 70ms pings. I've kinda been using it as a gauge for what 5G band I'm connected to. n41 is always in the teens, n71 is typically in the low to mid 20's, and n261 is around 70ms. It's honestly a mystery. Especially when we've seen Verizon mmWave with single-digit pings.
    • Dang, not too shabby! I'm sure this has been said before, but in some ways I kinda feel like T-Mobile has abandoned their mmWave network in NYC. I haven't seen any recent buildout, they're still stuck on 2x 50MHz n261 carriers, and performance (when you can connect) generally isn't much to speak of. On one hand, I don't really blame them when they have so much n41 deployment left to do. But it's also disappointing to hear them preach about the "layer cake" when their mmWave performance (at least in NYC) is a bit underwhelming. Here's hoping they'll get back on it when we start seeing these new 5G oDAS nodes roll out. I wonder what the reason is for the abnormally high pings you're seeing on n261. Didn't even notice that from my last post - it's a bit brutal to see a 77ms ping on n261 NSA and 13ms ping on n41 NSA, from the same site. Is this a recent development? Also, you probably shouldn't be experiencing ~5% packet loss when you're LOS... On another note, that's an interesting setup. Haven't seen one with a single APXVAR18_43-C-NA20, and I don't believe I've seen that 8-port Ericsson (?) midband antenna before.
    • Got my fastest mmWave speeds ever from a "layer cake" site in Chelsea. It recently got n41 but my phone didn't connect to it at all given I was super close to the site and within line of sight. Speeds on LTE alone were about 190Mbps.  I've been noticing consistent ~70ms pings on mmWave citywide.
    • is VoNR a thing yet?  when connected to n71, if a call happens, the device drops over to band 71 LTE to make the call and then switches back to 5G n71.  If I use samsung band selector and lock the device to n71 and do a call, the phone does not switch away from 5G and continues to reflect n71 but i dont have a way to know if that is just the phone not knowing what to show since it is band locked.
    • I have not seen CA on either with TNX.  CA on Sprint B41 is reduced to 2X around here as well.  Where the "magic" happens is n41 NSA. So far, I have not seen very fast speeds out of n41 SA.
