    Good question it should as rogers always pushes their settings. I did it regular ota.
    Since last post though I have since figured out that if in your area you don't have a strong fix on lte(in my area theres no pcs lte but theres lte(aws) everywhere) it drops to hspa/+. An app by ms called field medic hints at that it has the settings for the major US networks

    It has nothing to do with Verizon's international LTE roaming. It is because Roger's LTE bands are compatible with Icon. Both the GSM and LTE are unlocked on the Icon. If Roger's pushes the settings then all should work fine. In the US, it depends on where you are if you can get T-Mobile or AT&T LTE. Some places they support the AWS band, in most they don't.

    I know I already knew that I was simply saying that before the update id have to choose between lte data no calling , sms or sharing vs. Hspa , calling, sms, sharing

    You have to fool around with the setting on Verizon unlocked phones to make them work properly on GSM networks. For instance, turn off some of the my Verizon setting to get 611 to work on GSM networks. Hotspot is locked to Verizon, so you have to you a third party app like PdAnet+ and it works just fine. Get help from your provider. You will usually still get a message that it has a non Verizon sim. You cannot completely get rid of it, just stop it for the current session but when you restart it, it will come up again. Verizon does not like the fact that they have to leave the GSM radio open on their phones so they do everything possible to circumvent it by locking some of their applications to their network. You can get around most of them. It is possible to get 4Glte in some areas, but you might have to do a hard reset. This has been my experience at least.
