    Default Will an AT&T LG G3 work with Verizon's LTE network, or should I get the Sprint version?

    So I might buy an AT&T contract LG G3 for $99.99, and pay the early termination fee to get it for cheaper than if I bought it unlocked.

    After doing all that would my Verizon sim card work on the LG G3? Yeah the sim card came with my One M8 when I signed into a contract for that.

    I'd get a Verizon G3, but I don't like what they did with the bottom bezel for the black version.

    Someone told me that the Sprint and Verizon versions share bands while AT&T and Verizon doesn't, but according to this Verizon and AT&T share bands while Sprint and Verizon don't share LTE bands.

    No, Verizon will not allow that phone's ESN on their network. You will not be able to activate it.

    From what I understand, the Sprint and AT&T versions would both come locked; so to answer your question, no, neither of them would work. Verizon is the only carrier that sells factory unlocked devices. You'd be better off buying the Verizon version and getting a replacement front and installing it yourself. I don't know how hard that would be on a G3, though.

    Well, that's one thing Verizon does that's actually good for customers. That sounds like a fun project though, but taking apart phones sounds a lot harder than noodling around with PCs.

    EDIT: But can't I get phones unlocked now that its legal?
