Will Verizon support dual sim Note 9?

I play the dual phone life. It gets tiring. iOS came out with sim+esim functionality and though I am impartial to android vs ios, i prefer my Note 9.

Up until Note 8, S9+ I searched high and low an came up empty. Will this be changing?

It would need to support the radio frequencies used by Verizon Wireless and use VoLTE.

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

Switching between devices can be a bit tiring, I use to do the same in the past until I finally decided which device I liked better. I can certainly understand the importance of making sure your device is supported with a Dual sim card. When I took a closer look at the features in relation to the sim card, I'm only seeing that the device supports a 4G nano sim. To be sure ifthe device will ever support a Dual sim card, I would recommend reaching out to Samsung directly (800) 726-7864 to see if they will implement this feature with the Note 9 and any other future devices. I hope this helped provide more clarity.

In response to customer support's statement above: "To be sure if the device will ever support a Dual sim card, I would recommend reaching out to Samsung directly (800) 726-7864 to see if they will implement this feature with the Note 9 and any other future devices" Samsung does make a dual sim Galaxy Note 9.  Looks like the second sim slot is "shared" with the SD card slot, so you either choose an SD card or a second sim. I have two Verizon phones, different phone numbers, one for work and one for personal. I have two questions: 1) does Verizon support the dual-sim Galaxy Note 9, and 2) does Verizon sell the dual sim Galaxy Note 9. I would love to consolidate into one phone. Thanks!

More info on this - would love an answer from Verizon!

I want to purchase the Galaxy Note 9 - model SM-N960F (this is the UK version, according to Samsung Galaxy Note 9 SM-N960* Model Number Differences - TechWalls). It allows for two SIM cards, which enables me to use one phone for business and personal, instead of carrying two physical phones. It also appears to work on B13(700) which is apparently Verizon's "main" band.

I want to use it with Verizon in the US.  It does not have CDMA, but does have 3G and 4G LTE.  Based on what I have read, data should not be a problem.  But what about voice calls? Does Verizon use LTE for voice calls or do they still use CDMA?

Some of the websites selling the international version say it will not work on Verizon, but I am sure that is because the international version is GSM/3G/4G LTE and not CDMA/3G/4G LTE.

I spoke with a rep at Samsung who said that voice would automatically be downgraded to 3G but I'm still not sure that answers my question

I spoke to a Verizon rep via phone today, and she says Verizon will support it, as long as it has two physical SIMs and not an eSIM (software SIM, whatever that is)

I guess the bottom line is, will this phone work on the Verizon network? Will I be able to make calls and use data?  I want to be sure before I buy it.

So it's now 2020, is Verizon planning on finally going to support dual SIMs on non fruit phones purchased through Verizon?

While we do not have Dual SIM Android devices yet, keep an eye out for these as we may soon be launching new updates on this.
