    I checking the reviews some people said it did and some said it didn't. If it doesn't is it worth going to an AT&T store and spending $50 more for $400 total to get an unlocked classic so that it has wireless charging?

    Also Verizon told me they are sold out for a week, Does the Verizon blackberry work with T-Mobile and AT&T since its a global phone it should work with ever GSM sim right?

    If you are buying the Classic sold and shipped by Amazon.com--that would be the SQC100-4. That one does not have wireless charging.

    Strictly speaking from a networks perspective--if you're planning to use the AT&T Classic on TMO, it would be missing one key TMO band: UMTS 1700, which TMO uses for 3G/'4G' in many places. I would not pay $50 extra to get less coverage.

    Does the Verizon blackberry work with T-Mobile and AT&T since its a global phone it should work with ever GSM sim right?
    Yes, it would work with both, but not as great as the native models (-2 for AT&T, -4 for TMO.) The Verizon Classic would not be able to get coverage on the following networks:

    AT&T: LTE b17 (AT&T's main LTE network,) LTE b2, LTE b5
    TMO: LTE b2, UMTS 1700

    I would absolutely not buy the Verizon Classic for use on AT&T or TMO.

    Hey, Raino, are we REALLY sure the at&t version lacks the 1700 band? Remember their Z10 version that supposedly didn't have 1700 but did? Apparently it was a ploy to deflect people from jumping ship for T-mo.

    Good question. I'm 100% sure this check was done on the AT&T Passport, but I can't recall with as much certainty if it was done for the AT&T Classic. FWIW, it wasn't in the FCC filing for the AT&T Classic...but neither was it in the AT&T Passport's.
