Did you ever get an answer to the U12 being able to utilize Wi-Fi calling?

That's a great question. Many HD Voice-capable device also support Wi-Fi Calling. The following link will provide you with more information. Number three under Eligibility Requirements will have the information you're looking for. http://spr.ly/6607EdJnU

Hi. What's the difference betweeen the "Verizon" version of the phone and the unlocked version? Is it just that the Verizon version includes Verizon apps like My Verizon, or is there a difference as far as support for specific features on the Verizon network, like HD Voice or WiFi Calling?

Great news!  Thank you for the heads up!

I know HTC financing is another option instead of paying the full retail price all at one time, but is there any chance that a similar monthly payment plan (for two years) via Verizon will be available in the future for this phone?

Also will the Factory Unlocked version work on Verizon?  It is the only version available on Amazon and it seems to be compatible with Verizon but also states "Restrictions apply to certain carriers". What are those restrictions if any on Verizon?

Currently we cannot offer a payment plan because we do not sell the device but I will forward your idea for consideration for future programs.

Yes, the factory unlocked version of the U12+ has been tested and approved for activation on Verizon. Thanks for asking.

According to TechRadar's latest article (https://www.techradar.com/reviews/htc-u12-plus), "Verizon will be stocking the HTC U12 Plus in the US, with various other networks likely to do the same in the UK. It'll also be available for sale on HTC.com and through Amazon."

Is this statement true, will Verizon be selling the HTC U12+ sometime in June?

I'm curious about this as well... Will Verizon actually be selling the HTC U12 at their stores later this month, or some time during the summer?

Thanks for your interest. Currently there are no plans for the HTC U12+ to be sold by Verizon. It can only purchased unlocked and activated via BYOD.

Thanks for the reply.  

Do you happen to know if the  HTC U12 will have the same issue that the HTC  U11 has on Verizon's network... only being able to use Band 13, and not Band 2 and 4?  Or will the U12 actually have access to all 3 of them?

I don't see a response to this question.  Are all three bands supported?

jennd1, we guarantee all devices sold by Verizon are compatible with our network. However, as we do not sell this device, we cannot confirm it's compatibility.

I understand that all devices sold by Verizon are compatible (or should be) with the VZW network... but the question remains is this device, the HTC U12+, able to access all the network bands on Verizon?   

That should be easy to check on... I know that HTC shows those bands being supported and that this phone is VZW compatible... but in the past, Verizon has limited access for HTC phones on its network.

I understand wanting to make sure the device is compatible. You can check the compatibility of any device on the following link(it uses the IMEI). https://www.verizonwireless.com/onedp/byod#/ We do not have information available on specific non-Verizon devices and which features and bands are supported to that device. 

 

There is no guarantee that a non-Verizon phone will support Verizon Wireless features, like Visual Voicemail and Wi-Fi Calling.

I wish Verizon would sell HTC phones instead of the run of the mill Samsung, LG and Iphones.  Would it be that hard to have them available for sale online, if not in the retail stores?
