I'm looking to purchase a new phone in the US, but am planning on moving to the UK next Spring. I'm currently a Verizon customer and would like to keep my service with them until I move. In reading the technical specifications, it seems that Verizon's 4G LTE phones are SIM unlocked, meaning I could get a UK provider SIM and swap it out so I could use my phone there when I move.

What I don't seem to get clarity on is whether I'll be able to take advantage of 4G data networks in the UK (like Three's). Verizon's site says my phone would be limited to 2G/3G speeds. Is this true? If so, are there any ways to circumvent this limitation and get the full speed?

My understanding is that the US Verizon version of the G3 supports a certain set of bands, and that the UK providers each might use different bands as well - so does the answer depend on which UK provider I select?
