    The Verizon gnex doesn't support the bell cdma frequency to the best of my knowledge. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Bell operates on 850 and 1900 bands for both cdma and hspa.

    Yes. The band's the carriers use require the phones to be tuned to them. Think about it like an am/fm radio with a tuner knob. Bands outside the range of the radio cannot be picked up.
    I hope you have some luck selling the gnex and getting something that will work for you. Now, at least, you know what you're looking for.
