    T-Mobile is one of those economical carriers, and the 100-3 does seem to work in most places pretty well. Think it is missing support for one of the newer LTE Bands...

    The Sprint KEYone is also a BBB100-3.

    I can only provide some limited information. I've got the cdma 100-3. While it is intended to be used on Verizon eventually, at the moment I have a T-mobile sim card in the KeyOne. But I only have a limited plan which costs $3.00/month but only provides 30 talk minutes or 30 texts or a combination of those. I do not have any data set up on the Plan so can't tell how that works.

    I just received the -3 'for Verizon' and have been using it on T-Mobile solely. Only about a day and a half.

    VoWiFi works (WiFi calling). Hotspot works. Visual Voice Mail works. SMS and calls work.

    I have an Android tablet, but it is difficult for me to get use to Android on my phone. I continue to swipe up to minimize an app and all the way to the left for the Hub, etc. I still have not figured out how to search my media card or device for specific files. I'm due time...

    What you can do is try SIM card from other carrier MVNO by contacting the MVNO and requesting switch kit or SIM for testing service.

    No. I still have the Priv. I'm a lousy, one finger, slow typist so I have no use or desire for a physical keyboard. I had a Bold until the Z10 came out. I got the Priv for the screen size and the excellent virtual keyboard and I flick most of the words. So I'll now bow out of this conversation. I do check whatever is said about anything Verizon though. Talk to you in some other thread, I'm sure.

    The straight talk byod activation kit provides a sim card that is compatible with Verizon phones so you should be able to use it on straight talk no problem.

    Doesn't straight talk use all networks? So you would just have to get the Verizon version Sim I would assume.

    Total Wireless works well with the -3 (It's a Verizon MVNO - much less expensive and has 4G)
