    Thanks.
    My phone is actually an ATT version (930A) and I am planning to flash it to 930U as soon as the nougat version comes along (this weeks...?). Hopefully, that works on Verizon.

    I checked the device's IMEI number and was told (by an MVNO) that even though the device is unlocked, it can't be on the Verizon network. I thought having the US unlocked version meant it could run on any network.... trying to confirm from folks on this forum if the cust support rep was wrong...

    I took mine to the Verizon store when I switched to them temporarily. Their system wouldn't accept the IMEI to actiave the account, so they just activated some random phone for my account first, then stuck the SIM card in the SM-G935U and it worked fine.

    So yeah, I think if you already have a Verizon account you're fine if you just use the SIM card you already have. If not, then you need to ask a Verizon rep to activate some other random phone first, then use that SIM card.

    The phone is 100% compatible with Verizon and is supposed to work, but since Verizon is Verizon, they of course don't make it that simple.

    Just in case you were not aware, Nougat is now available via Smart Switch for US unlocked phones.

    Only for the SM-G935U. Not yet available for the SM-G930, as far as anyone can tell.

    And current guestimates put the OSA out another 3 - 5 days.

    OK, thanks for letting me know. I assumed they would both be released at the same timeツ
