Foreign purchased phones on verizon

I want to buy a phone from a foreign country that has two sim cards.  What will work with Verizon?

Highly unlikely.  Most other countries are GSM networked.   Verizon is a CDMA network.  Without compatible CDMA bands you would be unable to get signal. 

Many (but not all) foreign phones can work on ATT or T-mobile.  Please check with those forums before you blow your dough.

I think you meant to link the IMEI check for BYOD....   didn't work this time.

Since the OP hasn't purchased the phone yet, it won't help him.
