Nope, if only verizon was 100% GSM like AT&T, T-moblie and every one else. It's part of the price we Verizon guys pay on top of the slowest worst android updates with the highest bills on earth.

Sprint is CDMA also. And if you think Verizon is so bad, LEAVE.

Actually Vodafone (45% stake in VZW) DID want VZW to change from CDMA to GSM/HSPA but VZW corporate execs and bean counters said no. So they had to come up with "global phones" that have combo CDMA/GSM radios in them. Now if we had network-sharing agreements between the licensed holders of spectrum and technology, i.e. Sprint ATT VZW and TMo & regionals opening up their networks towers and base stations for ALL carriers to use as they do in the rest of the world, then this wouldn't be a problem, and phones like Nexus 4 then COULD universally operate on Verizon through "local" GSM roaming, and conversely, CDMA phones could operate on AT&T through similar arrangements.

But, no, here in US, we have to have these forever separate, private, unregulated unsharable corporate fiefdoms, instead of one universal shareable tnteroperating nationalized network. Thank the Private Sector for that.

Verizon will be GSM once VoLTE is active. The Nexus 4 still won't work because it doesn't have the right radio bands.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
