    If its already activated it should still work but there isnt a 100% guarantee on that. Activating a new device will be much more troublesome as others have already had some issues. If you press them hard enough they might activate it though.

    As you know bb10 in general will be EOL and have no support at all so be prepared for other issues to arise with that more so that with VZW.

    New activations won't be possible anymore for any Verizon-model BB10 BlackBerry. Already activated ones should still get some functionality until their minuscule LTE band set gets refarmed for new bands (the Verizon Q10 is literally just 4/13) or until the phone rots, whichever comes first.

    All of the areas not currently served by VoLTE (in other words, areas that are only using CDMA) will be upgraded with reprovisioned LTE bands 2 and 5 - neither of which BB10 supports.

    Also, you might want to do a search for this issue in the forums - there are close to a dozen threads discussing Verizon, what they will and won't activate, and the future of CDMA and how it will likely affect BB10 phones.

    Yes. Many here say otherwise, but I know from experience (not to mention cell phone signal mapping websites, discussed at length in another thread) that the Q10 supports LTE so it will work.

    Now, there are many other factors to consider in getting a BB10 phone, and you want to check the LTE signal where you expect to be (which you can do here:

    https://www.cellmapper.net/map?MCC=3...orColours=true


    )

    But there's no inherent reason the Q10 will not work with Verizon or be activated by them (although you may admittedly have to argue with their support a bit on the activation, as they are resisting per Thurask's list below. However, this only applies IF it is a new device that hasn't previously been activated on Verizon's network. If it has been activated (as most BB10 devices have been at this point) you should be good to go.)
