Will the Nokia 9 Pureview work on the Verizon Wireless network? ATT no longer uses GSM and Verizon is getting rid of CDMA at the end of this year. GSM is more used for other countries as that is the standard everywhere else.
As I understand it, and I could be totally wrong about this, as long as the phone uses the LTE bands that Verizon uses then I the phone should work on Verizon Wireless?

So - LTE doesn't support voice/text...
Solution - Verizon has a Voice over LTE technology they developed, offered free with phone service as "HD Voice".
Note - This will only work for when you have LTE coverage; when you go out of range you won't have any Edge/3G network bands to fall back on.
Solution - listed on Verizon's HD Voice help page, they mention to enable roaming to utilize partner CDMA/GSM network bands; since Verizon doesn't natively support GSM, this implies logically that enabling roaming should allow you to fall back on Edge/3G for voice/text when LTE is unavailable.
Note - I have not tried any of this yet. I have just purchased the Nokia 9 Pureview and still waiting on it to arrive. If I cannot get it to work on Verizon then I am switching networks.
