When will ZTE Axon 7 be supported by Verizon?

The phone has all of the band specifications needed for Verizon, but I have read it will not work on Verizon out of the gate, but sometime in the future? Was wondering if anyone could confirm this for me?

I have a feeling it'll be awhile before they're certified for use in Verizon since they're flagship Moto Z phones are coming in almost the same time frame Axon 7 ships and they don't want any competition. Heck knowing Verizon, it might not get approved at all.

If the information in that link is correct, there are a few issues remaining for the phone to work on the Verizon Wireless network.

1. Has it been FCC certified for all of the VZW frequencies?

2. ZTE needs to provide the IMEI numbers of the compatible devices to Verizon Wireless to add to the database.

3. You will likely need a previously activated SIM card to test.

In that link I saw the phone isn't compatible with the EDVO Rev A 3G network Verizon Wireless uses. That might be a major stumbling block.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

That's not true.  ZTE VP of Technology, Jeff Yee stated they were waiting on Verizon for technical approval for the Axon 7 to work on Verizon's network.

As it sits at this point and time the device is banded to work with Verizon though it may only be activated with GSM networks at this time. ZTE is activately working with Sprint and Verizon for the device to be with their networks.

it is not compatible now, and thats what zte said. if it were.... i would buy one.

Correct.  The Hardware is there.  The software will just need a simple upgrade once approved.  The ball is in Verizon's court, hence the question..."When will ZTE Axon 7 be supported by Verizon"
