    My fiancee is going to bring her brand new "Russian" Samsung Galaxy S5 to the US. Its unlocked and takes two SIM cards. Will I be able to use this phone with Verizon here in the US?

    It would absolutely work on AT&T and might work on T-Mobile, but not Verizon. Verizon uses CMDA which is an extremely backwards tech used only in the USA and parts of China. lol

    But if I buy a new Motorola X Pure, Motorola simply sticks a SIM card in it that's compatible with Verizon, right? They're not going to sell me a phone that only works with Verizon, right!?!?? If true, how is the Russian phone different from the Moto X Pure? Thanks for the replies.

    There are 41 different models of Samsung Galaxy S5. There is one model of Motorola X Pure and yes, it supports Verizon (CDMA) too. Not sure why Motorola was able to accomplish everything they wanted with 1 phone with all the chips and Samsung can't.

    Note that Verizon tend to be Richard Craniums about activating non-Verizon phones on their network. You might have to try to several different stores and/or find an employee with sufficient neural activity to get it working.
