    Ugh...@#$%! I wanted this on Verizon so bad. I love my Rezound...but I was really wanting this phone.
    F'ing Verizon.
    When my contract is up in a few months, I'm shopping around. I just hate to give up my unlimited data...and if they forcibly take that away when my contract is up...well, see ya Verizon.

    Glad I pulled the trigger on my Note 3 and didn't wait on the hopes this thing would come to Verizon.

    I've been off contract for over 2 years now. Hmm... might just jump on Sprint or T-Mo. My girl has had Sprint for over 10 years and has no complaints.

    I snagged a 32GB black one, and the best part is that I'm not going to use it, since my contract ends on March I'm going to give it to my brother and then he can betatest it for me.

    I am under contract so I'll have to pay an Etf which stinks but I'll sell my s4 which will cover my cost.

    Galaxy S4!!!

    I might be wrong, but the last time Verizon and Google claimed to be working together on something, wasn't it just a lackluster phone when compared to what other carriers got.

    I've been asking for it for years...Google, create a damn carrier service!

    I would be all over a Google carrier service!!! I hate to leave Verizon because their service really is great, I just wish they ran their company a little different!

    Totally agree. And remember, we already have a model for the Google-Verizon collaboration phone, which is the Droid Ultra/Maxx/Mini project. I remember hearing all the advanced publicity on the X, and pretty much assumed, "OK, if Verizon is getting a custom-designed phone with the same innards as the X plus some extra special sauce, the Verizon phone will be the one to own." So yeah I was wrong. Of course, this has ended up being a frustrating year for me -- over and over, what the analysts predicted and what the Google leaked was consistently well ahead of what actually materialized. I must be pretty naive that I'm so disappointed that well-established companies would actually market vapor-ware. Or maybe a kinder way of saying it is: if you're working on a new feature, sell it like it's real, even if there's a slim chance you'll deliver it as promised.

    Case in point: I think the most unique, promising feature of the X was "contextual awareness." But having owned and operated an X for about a month now...yeah...I can testify that it's a not-quite-as-promised feature. Not even a full notch above what any other phone already does. (Though I admit to loving the phone anyway!)

    So the take-away message here is that whatever magical collaboration Google and Verizon have in mind, I would keep my expectations fairly low.

    The Nexus 5 supports:
    CDMA: Band Class: 0/1/10
    WCDMA: Bands: 1/2/4/5/6/8/19

    What CDMA version is Verizon?
