Unlocked Z10 on Verizon Wireless
So I just got an unlocked Z10 on ebay. Love the phone, seriously, it's awesome.
I got to connect to my network, Verizon, and the phone is only picking up AT&T and T-Mobile options!
I called verizon and they said that they could POSSIBLY enter my 'ESN/MEID/HEX Number' if I wanted them to try...I looked everyone and cannot locate it.
The girl said it prob wouldn't work anyways.
Anyone else have or solve this issue?
Otherwise, I have a brand new, shiny, awesome black Z10 available for AT&T and/or T-Mobile users!

Re: Unlocked Z10 on Verizon Wireless
I'm not an expert but vz is cdma and I think the Canadian carriers use gsm bands. So both Sprint and vz won't work with Canadian phonesMoto Rokr E1 > Moto SLVR > Pantech Duo > HTC G1 > Blackberry Bold 9700 > Bold 9900 > HTC G2 & BB 9000 > Z10 > Q10 > Z30 > Passport!
Tmobile USA - Prepaid $30 per month! (100 min, 5GB at 4G/LTE, unlmtd sms) + VoIP
I really want the Q10, but I figured I'd get this to hold me over. It really is an awesome phone and if there is still a month+ difference between Z10 and Q10 release I probably will get the Z10 Verizon version to hold me over..
I now have this brand new Z10 for sale, shipped from Boston, MA overnight shipping included...I will consider all offers, PM me!

To further that: LTE devices, even if they would work between networks in that way, would have no voice on Verizon. LTE as it is currently deployed does not support voice of LTE. If you want a phone to work on Verizon it has to be a Verizon phone.BlackBerry Torch 9810 - 220.127.116.11

I just did the same thing. Useless (to me) Z10 arrived today. Wish there was a carrier with good 4G coverage in NYC. I hope the wait isn't too long. My company shuts off my BES server this week.
I'll post a craigslist ad in NJ for it tomorrow.

Hope a lot that want to do this read this thread. You can't just buy any phone and have it work on any network.Sent from me using my fingers. Be pantless in 5K. Febreze - for more than smells.

I'm on Verizon and knew my Z10 wouldn't work on VZW so I bought a prepaid T-Mobile SIM with data (standard Android will work). I forwarded my VZW number to the number on my SIM. You won't get TXTs so if that is important, carry your VZW phone with you. At least you can get to know your Z until Verizon gets off their a$$.
