    Has anyone had any luck with activating a Korean Galaxy S5 with verizon? I've been researching and have found a lot of threads regarding Verizon not allowing non-verizon phones to be activated on their network. Thanks

    Unfortunately, the Korean S5 only works with GSM networks. Verizon is a CDMA network, so your device will not work with them

    Thanks. I'm looking at a a korean one on ebay (i'm too new to post links), but if you search on ebay for: "Black Korean Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime SM G906 LTE A 3GB Ram 32GB Rom" you will find it. In the specs it says the network supports: GSM 900/1800/1900MHz ;WCDMA 850/1900/2100MHz ;4G LTE 700/850/1800/2100/2600MHz

    Is that CDMA different than verizons? Thanks

    Yeah, WCDMA is not the same thing as CDMA. Are you in the US?

    The Verizon S5 is Sim unlocked I believe. And they work on GSM carriers (although obviously not as well as a GSM device).
