    Ok I have looked everywhere and could not find this. If I buy the US model of the nexus 4 from google play and connect it to verizon, will I be able to use it
    over seas?

    2. There is still no 4g version right?

    There is no Nexus 4 that you can buy that will work on the Verizon network as far as I'm aware.

    The Nexus 4 is GSM only. It will never work on Verizon's CDMA/LTE network.

    Also and because it is a GSM phone it will work with pretty much any over seas carrier since VZW and Sprint are one of the only CDMA networks in the world. Everyone else is pretty much GSM.

    Indeed it is a downer, but Verizon ruined it for themselves.

    not necessarily. most don't want an lg anything (refer to the droid life pole where 70% of people didn't want it). i'd buy the htc droid dna before the n4.
