Default [Q] LTE will work on global GSM ?

Can someone explain if LTE capable verizon (CDMA) phones will work outside the USA?

Will a person be able to remove the LTE card and insert a local GSM card from that country and be good to go?


Thanks!

I have not been able to find an answer to this. And I know the folks on here rock, so I thought I would ask.

LTE is based on GSM.

LTE cards are basically next gen sim cards.

New LTE phones from Vzw will have an LTE slot for an LTE card. They will still be CDMA for 3G and voice.
