    I understand it works on T-Mobile and AT&T. Not on Verizon. I'm not sure about Sprint. If you plan to use it on T-Mobile, buy the D5803 model and NOT the D5833. The D5833 will not work on T-Mobile or AT&T. I have the 5803 and it works fine on T-Mo.

    It will only work on a GSM network such as T-mobile and AT&T. It will not work on Verizon or Sprint because they are both CDMA networks.
    I wish T-mobile would carry this phone as a branded product so that it would be enabled with WiFi calling.

    That's wrong it has the 700 LTE band so it can do both Verizon will but sprint wont . and its been said that Verizon will have one soon. So if 700 radio a ril patch would be able to change gsm or maybe CDMA . but if you are aware of the cdma shutdown so why would anyone look to use on CDMA . check the specs of the z3 compact .


    Verizon has a z3v





    Its been said that Verizon will have the colors such as red and tan. The z3v is only a rebranded z2 :eek:

    So are you saying that the Z3 compact is fully functional on all of Verizons network? Or is it functional only in Verizons LTE coverage? The Z3v has CDMA 1x EVDO 850 (BC0), 1900 (BC1) MHz and the Z3 compact doesn't.

    The Z3v Is Verizon's version of the full-sized Z3, not the Compact. It is essentially a Z3 'branded' phone with some Z2 internals. LAME.:rolleyes:

    See the Z3v thread on this forum.
