    When I put my France Orange Holiday Sim card in my Nexus 5x I see the sim card although it cannot register. It shows Orange APNs.

    When I put my France Orange sim card in my Samsung Mission J3 I get a notification:

    Change carrier: Please call Verizon at 888.2984.6804 to learn how you can activate this device on another carrier's network.

    But Verizon support does not understand this message or how to give me a code.

    I had the same problem with a Moto Play G4 when I went to France and the phone never found the Orange network.

    The phone shows "no sim card... searching for service." I think that this will not work in France but I don't know why.

    Thanks.

    The phones use CDMA technology. In France (and the rest of Europe, EU or not), carriers use GSM technology. the phones won't work. (It like using a radio to watch TV pictures - there's nothing to see them on.)
