    Considering getting a Z30 on Black Friday...but I'm currently on Verizon. Anyone know enough about the voice-over-LTE rollout to know if an unlocked GSM phone will theoretically work with that? Verizon is currently CDMA bands - BUT as I understand this, voLTE will actually be able to replace those. Therefore...a 4G LTE device should work when they finish rolling it out. Right?

    Nope it wont work, unfortunately even though there might be a case that the LTE bands might be compatible, Verizon uses IMEI or ESN #s to register a phone on their network. And for now only their branded devices with these approved IMEI or ESN#s will be able to be registered on Verizon's network.

    Hopefully one day these restrictions will change, but doubt it will happen anytime soon
