Re: Nexus 5 likely not coming to Verizon

Yea, if I were you that's what I'd do. That IS what I would have done a long time ago if I had the choice. Your reference to the "favorites" thing is right on point. There is only one OEM selling iOS so if Verizon wants a piece of that pie, they have to comply. Unfortunately, with so many Android OEMs, VZW can do as they please. Those of us who really need the unlimited data and coverage have to stay "interested" in what someone says about something possible in 2014. Sundar Pichai, VP at Google and head of Android may not be able to get the wonderful corporate weasel types at VZW to do something good but if anyone can, outside VZW, he just might be the one. So, for now, I'm gonna stay interested.

I have to say that I'm really disappointed by this as well, especially considering the selling price of it. I might just cancel my contract and head over to T-Mobile as well considering the fact that, T-Mobile does have the best phone plan currently. Not to mention that they coverage as gotten a lot better in recent year. I could really care less about Verizon coverage if they're going to be a pain about having phones that I doesn't have their preloaded crap on it....SHAME ON YOU VERIZON.....SHAME.

I too will likely be moving on.  Only 2 phone contracts, small potatoes for Verizon... but I can't accept their reasoning for not allowing unlocked devices.

All Verizon 4G phones are already unlocked. No to mention the FCC says all carriers have to unlock them anyway.

My apologies; let me be more clear... They won't activate my Nexus 5, Nexus

7 or Galaxy S4 Zoom, which all work on their network.

Nexus 5 does NOT support LTE Band 13. This is Verizon's main LTE frequency. The Glaxy 4S zoom doesn't support ANY of Verizon frequencies

Give me your input on this, maybe I'm reading something wrong....

http://www.thenexus5.com/nexus-5-is-compatible-with-verizon-so-why-wont-big-red-sell-it/

It seems to say the "WTR1605L transceiver makes it possible for the Nexus 5

to run on Verizon, not to mention every other cellular network in the

world."

I'm going by the Nexus 5 website. Band 13 is NOT listed.
