It will not work on Verizon or Sprint which are CDMA networks.

It would work with US GSM networks like T-Mobile or AT&T

Your welcome.

If your phone fails to work well, you can always sell it on eBay or Swappa, and purchase a phone with tha carrier of your choice.   But as you can see from the specs, it has the same bands as US GSM.

Actually, not in Seattle..  You want At&t in seattle.

We really want you to be with us as well. Perhaps you will be able to sell it to get money to apply towards a device that is compatible with our network.
