Bought an S10 + G975USQU1ASBA and it only shows GLOBAL, LTE/3G/2G (autoconnect),3G/2G,(auto connect), 3G, and 2G under "Network Mode"
Then under "System select" it has "change CDMA roaming mode"
Does this mean I can't hook up to Consumer Cellular which uses GSM? I thought all Samsung's were GSM compatible that use Sim cards.

you shouldnt be screwed. If nothing else, you can flash the U1 firmware so it runs the unlocked firmware. From there, youd just need to make sure that its unlocked and youre gtg. If its network locked, then youll need a paid service to unlock it. Usually anywhere from $7 to $20 or so.
