Microsoft Surface Duo

Sr. Member

Hello again!

My Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is showing its age.

As a potential replacement, I've been keeping an eye out for any indication that Microsoft's next foray into the mobile device market (the Surface Duo) will be coming to Verizon Wireless.

To date, Microsoft has been tight lipped about an actual release date and network availability.

Has anyone else stumbled across anything that would indicate whether or not the Duo is VZW bound?

If it is...I'll hold onto the S7E until I can try out the new device.

The Surface Duo is scheduled for Verizon. I have a Windows phone that works on Verizon until December - so I've been watching the internet for updates on the Duo for some time. Indications are a possible launch and shipment in August 2020. The Duo was sent for FCC inspection last week. Winbuzzer has great updates on the Duo.

Hola Nordiskskier,

So far, I've only been able to find references to the Duo being made available for AT&T users. Online documents seem to point to Verizon Wireless's bands being included, but, if Microsoft doesn't send the device to Verizon Wireless for acceptance testing, the company could simply disable the bands in the phone and we'll have a repeat of the Lumia 550, 650, 950 & 950XL. ☹️

It's one of my pet leaves that cell phone service providers dictate what cell phone I can use. That is like Comcast telling me what tv I can buy. I am a 20 + year Verizon customer but I will be gone if this happens again.

The ball is really in Microsoft's court.

 

If Microsoft doesn't submit the Duo for acceptance testing, Verizon Wireless can block the phone from being brought onto the network.

If Microsoft is serious about the Duo, it will try to get the Duo onto as many networks as possible.

mikerogers0 I understand there may be a phone that you want. Please note, the carrier does not determine who the manufacturer will sell the device to. We have a great selection of devices available. Here is our link for your review:http://spr.ly/6604G5MEk
