I have one I do not use due to it being GSM and want to get rid of to buy a one I can actually use[Galaxy nexus CDMA].

I put the listing on Ebay[expired],Craigslist and Swappa. I would try the XDA forum as ive been told but there I cannot post there due to the new restrictions. Can you help out XDA?

I'm confused what the GSM galaxy nexus will offer over the GS II. Don't they both use the same HSPA+ / WCDMA frequencies, if you get the GSM version?

Regardless I think you will be extremely lucky if you can find a way to swap a Galaxy S II for a Galaxy Nexus. If you ever do find a way that by some miracle gets you a GSM Galaxy Nexus for a i777 straight over, do let us know.

XDA does have a marketplace forum for buying, selling, and trading.

I think your confused. You cant use any GSM phone on Verizon. Unless maybe its unlocked? Verizon is CDMA. Along with Sprint. GSM can be used with ATT and T Mobile. i777 is for ATT. Unless you have the International version i9100. Then you should be able to put a T Mobile sim in it.

Wait a second, so your saying I CAN use my i777 on verizon?its the AT&T model. I was told by AT&T that i cannot use this phone on verizon.

Edit: Nvm. So I need to purchase a verizon nexus. Ok. well I guess I still need to sale this phone.

Yes, you need a CDMA/LTE Galaxy Nexus for Verizon. The i777 will not work on Verizon.

None of AT&T's LTE phones will work on Verizon, even if unlocked. What AT&T calls 4G that isn't LTE, their HSPA+, is also referred to as WCDMA, plus their 3G is called WCDMA, but its not CDMA like Verizon or Sprint. If that wasn't confusing enough both AT&T and Verizon use 700 MHz LTE, but they are not using the same section of the 700 range so they are not interoperable. Unlike EDGE (2G) that is interopeable on AT&T vs T-Mobile. And some regions of AT&T and T-Mobile use the same 3G frequencies, so some 3G phones have limited functionality on both GSM networks.

Basic rule of thumb, for best results get a phone specifically made for your carrier.
