    Default Purchased Note 2 from Amazon, will it work on Verizon?

    Long time lurker here.
    Just want to get a confirmation from you experts. I've only done a tiny bit of research into if there are different variant of the phone that wont work on certain carriers. I bought the GT-N7100 Factory Unlocked model on Amazon just now, will I be all set to activate it when it arrives?

    Thanks guys and gals.

    Why not? Because its the International Version? Which model should I be looking for to work on Verizon?

    So to buy the phone off contract, I have to buy it through Verizon? There's no other way? That's so lame.

    If you want to purchase a Verizon compatible device from Amazon you will have to wait for a bit longer.

    What he said. Otherwise we would all have our phones by now and wouldn't be staring at the forums and Verizon's website.

    Yes, the international version is GSM only, no LTE on Verizon's bands and no CDMA radio (Verizon 3G capability). VZW model is SCH-i605. I'd be amazed if that's on Amazon yet since it hasn't been officially released by VZW in their stores as of today.

    No, VZW won't activate a Sprint ESN and vice versa.
