1) Will this Phone work for Verizon or Sprint? Note: The same applies to services provided by companies using Verizon's or Sprint's network, like Boost, Ring plus, Page Plus, etc.
"While it has enough bands to support all US phone networks, it'll only work with AT&T and T-Mobile SIM cards for now. Verizon and Sprint compatibility is due "possibly later in the year," resting in the hands of the two CDMA carriers to flip a switch. All of the antennas are inside - this isn't just a GSM phone."
