Today! The Lumia 735 is on Verizon's website now, gray only, and priced well. $192 full retail, $8/month on Edge. This is a mid-range phone at best, but priced like it is makes it a viable option. I'm ditching my BlackBerry Classic and getting a Lumia 735 as my backup/alternate phone.
Why no band 2 support? The LG Lancet has it and it's not as good of a phone.
Lancet - LTE (Band2/Band4/Band13)
735 - LTE Band 13/4 (700/1700 MHz),
This is a low-end to mid-range phone. Missing bands are par for the course for non-flagship devices. Don't expect a top-end device until after Windows 10 Mobile is released.
Too bad Verizon Stores have no plans to stock them. This is going to be an "online only" phone. They just don't sell enough of them (WP devices) to justify the display space. Same with BlackBerry.
