    Hi all,

    Can anyone explain what Global Mode on my Verizon Q10 is? Does it offer any benefits when i am traveling?

    Thanks!

    Long story short, it allows you to access GSM networks in other countries while roaming.

    Verizon/Sprint run on CDMA towers.

    T-Mobile/AT&T use GSM towers. Most other countries use GSM towers aswell.

    Verizon putting in GSM bands in their global phones give us the ability to use our phone on almost any other provider if we need. But they don't usually put all the GSM bands in the phone so you are correct in the fact that you probably won't receive LTE on GSM towers.

    Just talked to the Verizon people. I can just get a sim card in the uk and use the phone there on whatever network!
