    Does the unlocked version (2016 Z Play) of this phone work on Verizon or not? Thanks.

    Edit: GSM Arena shows CDMA radios in the specs, but I'm reading conflicting things online about the phone's Verizon functionality.

    Just because the phone may have the correct radio, that doesn't mean that the phone will be fully compatible. If that device is like most others that are not intended specifically for Verizon's network, it will likely work for most routine uses. Don't expect things like HD service (simultaneous voice and data), WiFi calling, Visual Voice Mail, MMS, and such to work. You may not be able to use Verizon apps like My Verizon (if you like it) or NFL Mobile without a Verizon-labelled device either. You can sometimes dink around with settings and fix some things, but you'll have a tough time getting all of what Verizon offers.

    You best bet may be to call Verizon and ask. They should be able to tell you if you'll have just basic functionality or full compatibility.
