Cricket Activation Question

I have a verizon lg Spectrum vs920 that I would like to use on android $55.00 cricket plan. I just recently got it flashed by a professional via remote flash. Everything seems fine on the phone. Checked the settings a million time. I am not a complete noob at flashing as I have done a lot of phones before. But my experience stops at Motorola Razr days. I haven't been in touch with the flashing market since than. I tried to do the phone myself but realized how far those phones has come.
Anyway, I tried to do a esn change but the phone itself has only IMEI number and cricket has to have MEID number. I tried to do a conversion using a ESN converter but initially I didn't get any result. So, I did the conversion with out the last number of the IMEI (read it somewhere, don't remember right now). I gave the Cricket rep the conversion result, they put it in to the system but the phone didn't work. So, I called back and talk to their tech support. According to them, phone won't work because it has a Sim card in it.
My questions to you guys is,
Has anyone actually ever used this phone with cricket service?
Can it be used with the Sim card in it?
As this phone won't dial *228 and you can not access the service menu, how do you activate this phone?
What exactly should I give the cricket rep when I call the next time.
I noticed the flash didn't set any sid,Nid number, could that be the problem?
I hate to spend another 15.00 and not get the phone going. Please let me know as much as you can about the activation process while I do a little more checking on the settings to see the problem could have been with the phone and not the activation process.
Thanks in advance.
