Unlocked Verizon mobile phones
« on: September 03, 2016, 09:51:25 AM »
Does anyone know if Verizon 'unlocked' Iphones or Samsung galaxy S devices will work with Smart or Globe as far as 3G or LTE is concerned? I know they are supposed to be gsm unlocked, just not sure how they'll work with data or if they're finicky
iPhone X 256 GB Space Grey
Samsung S8
Samsung Note8 for work
Alienware R13 2017 GTX1060 Oled
Macbook Air 13 thin, light and unapologetically dated, yet I use it more than my Alien

Verizon uses CDMA instead of GSM so you're out of luck as far as 3G is concerned. For 4G Verizon uses bands 2, 4 and 13 which doesn't match any used here.

You can hope though that it would match one of the 700MHz bands that Smart and Globe acquired from San Miguel.

edit- Smart and Globe are on band 28 of the 700MHz frequency so that phone is of no use to you here.
