HTC Incredible 4G LTE

Dear Verizon,

1.  When is the Verizon HTC Incredible 4G LTE coming out?
2.  Will it have GSM capability when traveling abroad, so we can avoid switching over to a different phone and phone number for those trips?
3.  Will it have any data capability when traveling abroad?

Thanks for any answers you might provide,

1. Supposedly next week.

2. The specifications are available for viewing. I believe it had Global roaming abilities.

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

Hi Ann154.  Where are the specifications available for viewing?  Does anyone know if Verizon itself ever answers these sorts of questions and in what forum?

This is a peer to peer forum.  No one know when a phone is released until it is announced in an official press release.

This was the last official information. http://news.verizonwireless.com/news/2012/05/pr2012-05-04d.html

Ok, thanks.  I still see no way to get my GSM question answered, so I am out of luck on that I guess.

Looks like July 5th is confirmed.  Still no mention of global roaming though.

Thanks, good finally to have this solid information from Verizon, as to this model.


As to the separate-but-very-much-related issue of some Verizon customers requiring, but not getting, really excellent detailed clarification on global roaming issues and unlocking issues on this and other models, I personally think Verizon's lack of issuance of clear information is quite disappointing and may even be said to reflect some disrespect for some customers.

Hello ^KH

Thanks for posting this information. 

It appears that the phone is not global ready, so for now I will stay with considering the RAZR Maxx.

The Incredible 4G LTE does support Global Roaming Capabilities, just as all of Verizon's LTE phones do. They are, however often locked out until Verizon decides to issue a software patch to unlock the UMTS/HSPA+ part of the phone's CPU/modem SoC. Google for example "Global Roaming on Incredible 4G LTE" and you get lots of threads, like this one:
