    Hey all, I'm going to Europe, specifically Germany, soon and wanted to know if the Lucid will work. I'm on CM10 and I saw the GSM Network setting. Thanks in advance!

    As far as I know, CM10 may have the software for it, but the Lucid itself isn't a GSM supported device. I did a bit a research to prove this.

    Check this out: LG Lucid 4G VS840 - Full phone specifications

    "For Verizon.
    This is not a GSM device, it will not work on any GSM network worldwide."

    "2G Network CDMA 800 / 1900
    3G Network CDMA2000 1xEV-DO
    4G Network LTE 700 MHz Class 13"

    So CM10 may have the option for GSM, but it's not a GSM device.

    Ah well. Do you know if an HTC Thunderbolt is? My only other option is a super old BlackBerry or a free phone from Verizon.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I called Verizon. The Thunderbolt is not GSM supported. Hopefully I'll have the money for a DNA by next month.

    Try buying a temporary free phone for your travels or something?

    I did that last year. I just wanted a smartphone this time around.

    If you don't see yourself using voice or sms often, and want to have a smartphone, another option might be something like this: Cellhire - Germany MiFi mobile hotspot rental

    I used one of these (not this one) while I was in Japan and it's obviously compatible with any device that has WiFi.

    CM10 has this setting available for all the GSM phones out there that CM supports. However, the different networks need a different physical antenna and radio PHY which can't be switched in software.
