Hi JIM

Also if you do not know the IMEI of the device you are interested in, you can refer to this list of OD Certified Android Smartphones Verizon Certified Open Development Android Smartphones

The BYOD page will be a great resource for activation once you have your device in hand.  http://vz.to/2sAcC7N

JIMWIL1 Making sure that you have the right phone is important. I want to ensure you get the assistance that you need. Ann154 is correct; you can visit our “Bring Your Own Device” page http://vz.to/2sAcC7N to check compatibility of the device.

Unfortunately, not all IMEI's are registered on Verizon's list and there may be phones that might, repeat might  work.

I talked with a 2nd level support person - I plan to bring a European dual-SIM phone back with me the next time I'm shipped home - and he provided a list of bands/frequencies that phones should support to be compatible with Verizon's 4G/LTE networks.

Viz: https://community.verizonwireless.com/t5/Bring-Your-Own-Device/Info-Frequency-bands-supported-for-4G...

One big issue that I have discovered when travelling abroad is that some non-US phones, notably some Huweai phones, will not, repeat NOT recognize or attempt even a roaming connection with a US SIM card - whereas others, (like LG and Samsung), will connect with no problem.  This is despite the phone fully supporting all the bands needed.

What I want to do, if I can, is "try" a previously provisioned Verizon SIM card in my existing European smartphone, (which I plan to replace anyway), and if it works, get a new SIM of my own, take it to Europe, and make sure the phone will recognize and provision the card.

Of course Your Mileage May Vary, and any " BYOD" type device is going to receive limited support at this end.
