Summary: I bought a Verizon sim and I had to put it into an apple iPhone to activate it. I was then able to move the sim to this phone and it worked. The support guy kept saying that the sim was incompatible with the phone, but it worked anyway - I will have to investigate that further.
Pros: Windows phone 8 and works with Verizon. Unlocked GSM phone. Only unlocked Verizon branded windows 8 phone on Newegg that I could find.
Cons: not like other GSM Lumia - cannot add a memory card (the 32Gb is built in). Its about the same weight as an apple iPhone 6 (heavier than the GSM only phones, like the 640 and 640XL). Screen goes to the edge of the device (looks like it could be damaged easily). Only has a 2Ah battery - you are on...
Excerpt: THE AD STATES YOU CAN USE 4 DIFFERENT SIM CARDS AND THATS WHY I ORDERED IT. WHEN I TOOK IT TO A TMOBILE STORE THEY SAID THAT THE CARD FITS BUT SINCE THIS WAS A VERIZON PHONE, IT WOULD NOT ALLOW THE T-MOBILE CARD TO WORK.
The phone works great, but the software has glitches

Summary: Because it is based on Microsoft software, there are a few glitches, but that is what one has to accept when we as a country settled on a slightly lower performing OS. The phone works great, but the software has glitches, like most Microsoft software.
Summary: Ive owned a few of the Lumia 928s. What ever you do DO not plug into the head phone jack. I f you do then kiss good bye to your sound. It will get stuck in headphone mode and theres nothing you can do about it. Other than that its a great phone.
