    I was reading that one of the recent Verizon lte phones (I think the rezound) was said to have global capabilities (GSM) but turned off because Verizon was working on some problems with it playing nice with late. Does anyone know if the galaxy nexus also has the same capabilities and can be turned on once they got the issues resolved?

    Negative. Verizon Nexus has no GMS or global capabilities.

    Hey guys, quick question. I'm traveling to Italy in about a month or so, and it was my understanding that the Maxx HD has global capabilities, however it would be pretty expensive to use my Verizon sim card. That said, am I able to simply buy a prepaid card and use that for the duration of my trip? I think I've read something on this before, but I can't remember which carrier or phone, or if any of that even makes a difference.

    Thanks in advance.

    All of Verizon's 4G LTE phones are SIM unlocked from the factory. So yes, all you need is a prepaid SIM card from whatever carrier you choose.

    If you go into Settings> More...> Mobile networks> Global data roaming access> To sign up for a global data plan.... number displayed on screen shot below. I nearly added Global access to my device about a month ago, didn't follow through with it, so I can't make any suggestions or recommendations other than check with these guys first, before exploring alternative routes.
