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 12 Pro Max 256 GB Pacific Blue
Samsung Note9
Samsung Z Fold 3 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.
