Default Htc dna

Any word on how long it would take to get a T-mobile version of this phone?

I know that news about it just barely leaked and that it is a Verizon phone, so its all speculation.

But what is an appropriate time frame for a phone to come to T-mobile from Verizon?
And how hard is it to buy the verizon phone and use it for T-mobile.

I am looking at buying a new phone and i was almost going to buy the Note 2 but then i heard about the HTC Butterfly or DNA and i am really interested in it.

here are a couple links

apparently the US version will hage a larger battery than the Japanese version. The big draw is the full HD screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution with a 5 inch screen.

The Droid DNA will not be coming to T-Mobile. You also can't use it on T-Mobile's network, as T-Mo is a GSM-based carrier and Verizon is CDMA and the two are not compatible at all. That said, it's possible that HTC/T-Mo could release the HTC Butterfly, as that particular phone is a world phone. No idea on how long that would take though and there have been zero rumors about such a thing. You might be able to import one and use it on T-Mo's network.

The HTC Butterfly is supposed to be an international phone. i wonder how much better the verizon version will be?

"The HTC J Butterfly is equipped for global use -- through NFC, LTE, and CDMA/GSM/UMTS/GPRS radios."

How do you know a version of the phone will not come to T-mobile?
