    Can we swap in an already activated SIM and use this on Verizon?

    Would be wishful thinking. But I doubt it.

    It will work on Verizon when Verizon activates it.

    It might work like the Moto X Pure. Verizon hadn't originally approved it to work, but Moto said, "Screw it!" and let it work out of the box.

    I'm sure a reviewer will try it out.

    I spoke with a product guy with ZTE and they're trying their absolute best to get the Axon 7 officially working with Verizon.

    I just got this form the PC Mag Review.

    Network Performance and Connectivity
    The Axon 7 is an unlocked phone with full compatibility across all major US carriers. It supports GSM, CDMA, HSPA, and LTE bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/12/13/17/20/25/26/29/30/41. Only the Motorola G4 Plus$329.99 at Amazon, G4$149.99 at Amazon, and Apple iPhone SE$399.99 at Verizon Wireless feature such broad network support. I tested the phone primarily on AT&T, but I was able to use data and make voice calls on Verizon as well. Network performance in midtown Manhattan was in line with what I've seen on other recent AT&T devices. The phone also supports dual-band Wi-Fi and NFC.

    I hope one of these sites goes more in-depth with Verizon use.

    Can confirm. Have the Verizon sim in now, able to make calls. Data is bad inside the office but it worked outside.

    Hi, I just read your review on the Axon 7. Can you confirm that just by putting in your Verizon SIM card, it worked on their network?

    As you can imagine, there are a LOT of people waiting to order the phone until they hear that Verizon is ok with this phone working on their network.

    Anything you could provide would be appreciated and passed along. Thanks!

    I believe that "R" signifies roaming.

    Yes you can, "I tested the phone primarily on AT&T, but I was able to use data and make voice calls on Verizon as well." From the PC mag review^^

    Looks like ZTE is officially going to say "GSM only" for now.

    I'm using a Verizon sim in my Axon 7. Phone is working fine. CDMA is only supported in the 1st sim slot. It will not work in the 2nd slot.

    That's great news, I had a feeling it work, but ZTE is just covering themselves by saying it isn't compatible as they don't have an official agreement with Verizon...how do you like the phone so far?

    Lol got to feel for Verizon users, every unlocked phone release is like a lottery. Hate all carriers in general especially Verizon who are a pain in the OEMs ***. Apple because of their market and brand strength knows how to treat these morons.

    So far I like it. There are some things I have to get use to coming from a 6P but I'm fine with that.

    It is a little bit smaller but that is a good thing. I think 5.5 is the sweet spot for me.
