    I have been using Window's phones with Verizon for as long as it was possible. Now I can't get a decent phone...still on the 928 and it is past it's prime. Microsoft what are you doing to your dedicated customers?

    Sadly, not happening, at least with the 950 and 950 xl, you may be in luck with the HP phone coming out in a couple months. Though, if it doesn't, I wouldn't expect anything else in terms of Windows Phones on Verizon, sadly.

    Verizon uses different technology that requires different hardware. As a result it is a much bigger step to support Verizon than it is to support GSM carriers. Since most of the world uses GSM, it is more important for MS. While it has been reported that MS talked to Verizon about Verizon specific versions of these phones, apparently the business case did not work for either MS or Verizon.

    Actually, Verizon is starting (or appears) to move towards more LTE, as CDMA is somewhat limiting in terms of data/voice concurrently.
    Their current Verizon LTE phones come unlocked, but don't support the correct band/frequency combinations for good compatibility with AT&T and T-Mobile.
    The same/inverse is true of the 950XL, unfortunately, I'd really like to be able to use Verizon LTE on my second SIM, but it's not going to happen with the the radios in the phone. I'm not sure it was business-case, or more along the lines of some sort of disagreement ;-]

    Verizon and CDMA are basically dead in the water right now. Nothing new announced and nothing in the leaked pipelines that's why I left for tmobile. U have more options with gsm phones

    I have tried to activate the 950xl on Verizon on the web portal...when entering the IMEI number, it comes back with Device ID Not Valid to be activated on our system.

    Figures. Verizon hasn't whitelisted the model.

    I obtained a 950xl knowing it wouldn't work on Verizon but wanted to give it s good shakedown (minus calls and texts) and I like the phone. Even if they whitelisted it, it was determined the CDMA was a problem too, right?
