    Hello,
    my Verizon contract is running out and I am eying the Nexus 4, want to switch to a lower cost provider other than Verizon.
    Trouble is: I have no clue what networks this device is usable for. Browsing the specs, I only read technical Greek language about GSM/EDGE/GPRS, hspa+, but nothing like Sprint, Virgin, T-Mobile or At&T.

    Can someone help?

    Thanks!

    In the USA:

    AT&T
    T-Mobile
    Straight Talk

    The current version is not usable on CDMA providers (Sprint/Verizon/Virgin etc...)

    There are probably others too, I'm sure someone else can chime in. I hope this helps.

    Any GSM operator the phone will work. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_...work_operators
    Here are a few examples
    At&t
    Straight talk
    Air voice
    H20
    Net10
    Red pocket
    Simple mobile
    T-Mobile

    Thanks LNWJ,
    that's already something.
    Anybody what about Nationwide smartphone service without paying extra for a smartphone data plan, used iphones, refurbished phones and more
    And will it support Virgin at some point?
    I am so sick of Verizon's rates!

    Thanks

    Unless LG/ Google make a CDMA variant (i.e. a sprint/ virgin/ boost/ verizon specific version of the phone), virgin mobile or any other CDMA based carrier will not be supported on the Nexus 4. Depending on the coverage in your area, I'd look into T-mobile and straight talk... page plus only has 3g data which is painfully slow.

    Thanks, I live in an area where few providers have 4G, will anyway have to live without it.
    Appreciate all your help!
