    I'm thinking no but thought I'd ask anyway. I guess if it has Skype it doesn't really matter. (Planning a trip to UK next year)

    No. CDMA/LTE only.

    Thanks - I wasn't sure if LTE was rolling out in Europe but I guess it's not.

    VZW purchased the 700MHz spectrum in the US for LTE rollout. 700MHz being a licensed frequency, moreso considering the FCC governs things in this country only. Therefore, VZW LTE = USA at this point.

    I can't answer that question. To the best of my knowledge, VZW LTE coverage will be in the US only, but I could be wrong. As far as Skype goes, I don't know if you will be able to make video calls on 3G, or if it will be limited to 4G/WiFi only, so I can't really answer that one either.
