Do NOT try putting your existing Verizon post-pay SIM card into this phone. Verizon is shutting down phone accounts that try to do that. You will still be able to receive calls, but not make them. But you can call in and re-instate your phone number; just a pain.

1. Will NOT work on RingPlus
2.Will not work on other CDMA providers (unless you have the ability to reprogram it. Probably not going to happen within the U.S.)
3. Spec says this phone has ZERO GSM band. AT&T T-mobile etc users buy at your own risk.

Can we bypass activation and use this as a wifi only device?
I snagged the LG Optimus Exceed 2 for $12 at Amazon earlier for the same purpose (awaiting delivery) but this one seems to have a better processor (for smooth gaming) and better video camera (1080p recording).

According to this thread you can (https://www.reddit.com/r/verizon/...ctivation/), although there aren't exactly a ton of commenters on there confirming "yes".

Just did a quick comparison of the phone with LG Optimus Exceed 2, (as well with LG F60 and LG Tribute):

http://www.phonearena.com/phones/...,8568,8938

Seems to be way better than the (LG Optimus Exceed 2).
- Better Processor
- Better Graphic Processor
- Front facing camera (Handy for Selfies, Skype, Hangout, Video Calls etc)
- Double the Storage
- Better Video Recording Capabilities (1080p)
- Better LTE Bands Coverage (If need be, in remote future)
- A-GPS Support
- Better resale value (Since Exceed 2 is selling like a cheap toy all over Stick Out Tongue)

Yes after use on prepaid for 6 months, or by using an active Verizon 4GLTE sim card. Verizon will not directly activate this on post paid without 6 months on prepaid

Does anyone know if this phone can be used on RingPlus? I signed up for the Leonardo 4 deal a few days ago with an old phone's ESN, but still need a phone. Would this one work? TIA
