    Just got my phone yesterday. Bought it off Amazon new. It is the Verizon STL100-4 model. I'm in jamaica on lime network. Got a data plan on there as soon as I got it but I'm only getting edge speeds so I went to the carrier and the rep said it might be the phone. Whenever I chose 3G and 4G I cannot connect to the network. When I select 2G, 3G and 4G the network comes up. But only with edge. Could this be the model issue or specific defects

    LIME’s network facilitate’s usage on the 850Mhz/1900Mhz frequencies.

    the model you would want would be the stl100-3, since it uses the 850/1900 bands.

    Yes. Lime is a GSM network and the phone you bought is primarily for a CDMA network. I know they're cheap, but you have to do a little research. As RADE posted, there are a bunch of phones and you have to be sure what you're buying. Maybe we need a STICKY to help people sort this? Return your phone and get the right one.
