BYOD - Key2 LE -how to confirm it is CDMAless

Prior BYOD discussions have confirmed that the Black Berry Key2 LE is white listed by Verizon as a BYOD, but there are many issues with receiving text messages.

Part of the "fix" is to make sure to purchase a CDMAless version of the BB Key2 LE.

Is a phone which says it is  "GSM Unlocked (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon)" a version that is CDMAless?

corteocat, I understand the importance of making sure your Key2 LE is available to be used on the Verizon network. I am here to assist. The best way to figure out if your device is compatible with our network is to use the link listed below. Have you already checked to see if your device was compatible? If so what were your results? Can you provide more information on the issues you are receiving with the text messages? https://www.verizonwireless.com/prospect/bring-your-own-device/#/checkDevice

We talked to Verizon tech support multiple times prior to receiving your response to our question- Tech Support told us that only Model BBE100-5 will work. We purchased it on Amazon, picked up a SIM card at our local corporate Verizon store, and called tech support back after we got home. They were able to activate the phone. We are fully functional, no problems with receiving text messages.

So, apparently, this model is "CDMAless"

thanks.
