    Hi Everyone,

    Sure all new Verizon phones are factory unlocked as mandated by FCC... But with that ugly looking Verizon logo and their bloat, modifications no one outside Verizon probably want to look at that eye sore.

    For me - as long as the bloat can be disabled it isn't so bad. Carrier logos don't bother me. I see logos all around my house... My fridge, stove, shoes, TV, etc... So It isn't a new thing.

    I purchased mine unlocked period no carrier branding just samsung as i wanted the platinum gold version I use it on ATT and its awesome I can say this the moment i powered it on it got an update this was two weeks now, and this morning another update came in for software improvements and some other stuff for stability on the phone. Thats the good about unlocked devices I am sure no carrier Note 5's have recv any updates and yet my Note 5 got two pushed updates from samsung thats true unlocked.

    Not all new Verizon phones can be used on other carriers out of the box - they might not be sim locked, but there are software modifications that sometimes has to be done to get it to work on other carriers.

    The Verizon logo doesn't bother me. Bloat isn't a big deal to me so long as it can be disabled.

    Back on topic though, the question is, who got their phone unlocked - and to the point, the Verizon one is factory sim unlocked.

    Finally, someone with the N920I, does it work on LTE and does it show the LTE logo? Lastly, will the Samsung Pay work on it through AT&T? Thanks.

    I have the 920L as well but that's what I received from my carrier. I'm on LGU+ in Korea which is great because we do have VoLTE, the video calling works great here and we have the 5G LTE called giga-multipath which gives us speeds of 800mbps down and 400mbps up.

    Yes it works on LTE all bands show in settings I am getting over 50mbs down and 21 up on ATT LTE on a average. Samsung pay is not through the Carrier it's Samsung just like Apple pay has nothing to do with the carrier.

    I'm not an ATT customer but I'm patiently waiting to see if they will approve my unlock request. I bought the phone outright from Best Buy. Currently using it on Cricket.
