New phone w qwerty keyboard F(x)tec

Member

I saw this phone on YouTube, and it looks like it might work on Verizon.  It is a smart phone with a physical keyboard in landscape layout.  Releasing in the next few weeks in Britain and UK first I imagine (UK company).  I would love to order one, but I don't know the tech that determines if it can work on the verizon system.
www dot fxtec dot com and also on Facebook:

Chen Liangchen  stated in June "... It is compatible with Verizon"
John Warner also stated "...  Bands are listed here:
Global LTE (FDD+TDD), WCDMA/UMTS, CDMA/EVDO, GSM/EDGE
Cellular Bands;
GSM: 2, 3, 5, 8
WCDMA: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8
CDMA/EVDO: BC0, BC1
TD-SCDMA: 34/39
TDD-LTE: 38/39/40/41(100mhz)"
FDD-LTE: 1, 2/25, 3, 4, 5/26, 7, 8, 12/17, 13, 20, 28

Unless Verizon white lists it, nope.  

So why no link?

I had the company link, but it was removed from my message, so I subbed "dot" in the message for "."  Just fxtec online and on facebook.

That’s better.  

Specs are better than the BB Key2.   But I’m always leary of ‘orphan’ phones.  Might be worth watching.

Verizon - Please comment on if this phone can be used in the USA on Verizon Wireless plans!

Zuglord,

 

The F(x)tec is not currently supported on the Verizon network. That could always change in the future but it hasn't been approved for use with us.
