I am continually looking at the mid range device market not only in the U.S. but throughout the globe in my travels. Personally i have to, i have a large family, and i want recent tec at  reasonable price points for my kids. As an example the Samsung A50 released 3/2019 gsm in the global market yet somehow passed Verizion's device compatiblity list from 2018 directly to sales mid June 2019. If i am correct, correct me if i am wrong, Verizon is a cdma network. Therefore one would see my delema when i raise a question regarding " Bring a Samsung factory unlocked A70 device to Verizon " ?  To shed more light on the issue.. I notice " Apple User's " have brought their phones from other networks or brought them unlocked and are using them on Verizon's network, no problem. I understand cdma/gsm ect... However i don't understand when a device is gsm how is it running on a cdma network? If that's the case what's the compatability issue with Samsung A70 device?  Sure a Verizon consumer can buy an old flagship device that has better chipset, faster processor, ect in the same price range as the A50 - A70 but the old flagship devices lack recent hardware development and software of today. As a large family consumer and many other large families using Samsung products on Verizion's network in the U.S., we should be able to bring factory unlocked Samsung devices to Verizion's network. Why is this not happening for Samsung User's at Verizon wireless?

If you can't get support need at customer service tec support. Head over to your nearest Verizon authorized dealer with your device explaining your issue. Over the years i've had issues with devices/tablets.. ect. When I couldn't get the issue addressed over the phone, in store addressed my issue. Be sure the store you visit is a Verizon authorized dealer.

Suggestion: There are ways to record phone/text communication with any device. Check your OS app store. Also, before totally calling it quits with Verizon being as though you have made a loyal investment, request speaking with a manager in either the customer service or sales department. I'm only suggesting. At the end of the day. Verizon or any other carrier can not afford to lose any of us. I don't work for Verizion I'm in a totally different industry that requires me to travel all 48 states very frequently. I must have superior mobile network connections 24/7 . I hope your issues are resolved asap.

I'm not a Verizion specialist however i can state i travel all 48 states frequently. It is because your out of signal zone. Either the tower is to far for your phone signal to reach or there are no towers on the bandwith of the network. This happens to me often in states like Wyoming and Eastern Maryland as an example.

I reviewed " what's in the box " for the Samsung A50. I noticed there is no case or headsets that come in the box with the A50 purchase at Verizon. Why is that? Other consumer markets outside of these borders buy an A50 that comes with a device case and headsets in the box. Is this how Samsung does buisness with Verizion wireless customer's in the U.S.? Please explain?

According to the study commissioned by CTIA authored by Accenture Strategy and Accenture Network Practice.. ( This study went public 3/12/18 ) " Based on initial observations, we have conservatively estimated that less than one-third of small cell deployments (28%) require a review in accordance with NHPA/NEPA ( National Historic Preservation Act / National Enviormental Policy Act ) in 2017. That percentage of small cells requiring review was assumed to stay the same in every year from 2018 to 2026; however, if carriers cannot continue to deploy based on a potential cost avoidance strategy as may have been excercied previously, this number could be higher and further increase project costs. "  The study gose on to state.. " Accentures previous research on 5G outlined the potential economic benefi t and job growth, as well as the key challenges for deployment, which included local permitting and regulations, access to public right of way, and fee structures. A portion of these challenges is now quantified. Should regulation remain unchanged, Accenture estimates that the industry could spend an incremental $2.43bn related to NHPA/NEPA reviews through 2026. However, if regulatory reforms could reduce the proportion of reviews required by nearly two-thirds, $1.56bn would be available for redeployment over this period, which could have substantial impact on 5G deployment and overall benifits to the U.S. economy. " Accentures findings give a year by year breakdown of cost and small cell deployment to meet full scale across the U.S. by 2026. At the time of this study 2018 projected cost for 5G small cell deployment was $241mm equaling an 86,000 more small cell deployment in 2018 than in 2017. In order to have full 5G coverage according to CTIA a wireless industry trade orginazation " carriers will have to roll out an additional 769,000 small cells by 2026 "  This explains Verizon's $1 Billion purchase of Fiber-optic cable amounts to 12.5 million miles of cable. Not only cell towers are needed for this technology but digging and laying fiber-optic will have to happen as well. This could possibly have something to do with trade wars outside of U.S. borders when looking at scale roll-out 5G comparison. For a more indepth look of 5G U.S. roll-out head review ctia.org's website. There you will find far more about 5G's U.S. roll-out.   I'd like to know your thoughts about 5G's U.S. roll-out. I brought this subject to the forum for open discussion as 5G and IOT (internet of things) effects and will effect every area of our lives.

https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/06/13/galaxy-a50-us-price-release-date/  This article above explains some of what i mentioned in this post and another post regarding the A70 only.  Verizon/Samsung U.S. entered the market with the A50 that went directly past the (see if it's compatible with network red tape) striaght to the sales. My device compatability question is not only due to price but device capability. The A70 is a larger phone, it is the only Samsung phone that has the exact fast charge as the S10/5G, It has a large battery, and a decent camera, in the same price range as the A50. I left the specs in the post. It seem as if you must buy devices from Verizion or only devices Verizion says it's ok to have on the network. There are a number of midrange phones that are below Verizion's flagship phone/prices that are as good as flagships without the price. For large families these outraguos flagship prices are not consumer friendly. Wealthy or not. Looks like i'll either have to settle for the A50 or buy the Note 9.

No Verizon specialist has responded to my question here regarding the A series in a prior post. I have not gotten an answer in stores or phone via customer service. Most have no idea there are other A series phones above the A50. Through further inquiries i found the A70 is available in the U.S. market. The A80 has not been U.S. market approved as of yet. I also found Verizon will be marketing lower tier A series devices such as the A20 and A10. I don't want either of these devices. I want to replace a device on my account with the A70. These are the specs for the A70 Galaxy A70 SM-A705M/DS Factory Unlocked Smartphone, Android 9.0 (Pie) /  Rear Camera: Main: 32MP, F1.7 Ultra Wide: 8MP, F2.2 (123°) Depth: 5MP, F2.2 ; Front: Selfie: 32MP, F2.0 /  Display: 6.7-inch Full HD+ (1080x2400) Super AMOLED Infinity-U Display /  Octa Core, (Dual 2.0GHz + Hexa 1.7GHz) ; 4,500mAh (typical) Super Fast Charging /  RAM: 6 GB ; ROM: 128 GB ; Up to 512 GB Micro SD ; GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2 (dual-SIM model only) ; HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 ; LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 20(800), 38(2600), 40(2300), 41(2500) Asking a Verizon specialist that is aware of device compatibility to respond. 
Is there a Verizon specialist available to respond to the post?

I understand some phones can be actived regardless of approved/certified Verizon network device list. As an example the Samsung A50 never made Verizon's approved device list. It entered Verizion's marked as a featured device. My question is aimed at other devices in the A series above the A50 not below. The Samsung A70 and the A80 are these devices compatible with Verizion?
