But if your town doesnt have a AT&T phone tower,, you will not get any service because the phone only uses AT&T tower. This happened to us w a good HTC phone that we switched to Verizon.

Way too expensive, for this price buy a zte axon 7 or Huawei 8.

Hmmm... this is a mid-range phone. Snapdragon 617 cpu, 1080 screen, etc. It's not bad, but it's not the M9.

That appears to be the European version which only has 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM vs the US version available in the OP link which has 32/3 respectively.

I saw the 2GB as well, and thought it must be a listing error, but it does say 32GB in the title, so I guess I'm not entirely sure.

Its performance is similar to Moto G4 or IDOL 3 Pro, but in premium design like iPhone 6. For $300, it is not a steal for most of Android users but worth to have a look.

I had this phone along with a HTC 10 and opening and closing apps and day to day there was no real difference. This is a very nice phone. just wish it would have started at this price originally!

The phone is clearly marketed as only being compatible with GSM based service (AT&T/T-Mobile domestically). There is also a custom Sprint model. This phone is not advertised to have Verizon support (even if the hardware is capable), not sure why you would expect otherwise.

It's GSM only. Sprint, Verizon, and any MVNO that uses those networks will not work.
