Re: Sony XA2 ultra verizon support

A recent story: despite information given to us by Verizon, Sony, and other internet sources, the Sony XA2 Ultra is only supported by Verizon's data services, but not voice services. We spent 4 long days working with Verizon and Sony trying to resolve this, but it was not resolved. What to do? We switched to ATT initially, despite our better judgement, having had problems with their customer service in the distant past. Their services worked fine, but pricing was not what they orginally told us. Within a couple of months we switched to Consumer Cellular (aka selling ATT services, but much more helpful), and now pricing is much better with similar services to ATT Slightly smiling Face

Re: Sony XA2 ultra verizon support

Why would you try to use service from Verizon on a phone that's strictly GSM only? yeah, I know that Verizon has the ability to have SIM cards but that doesn't mean their service is going to work in the phone. That's basically  a lack of one person's judgment on this matter who doesn't know what they're doing; now granted having to switch over from Verizon to AT&t is one person's decision and doing so but again that's just common sense when having a phone that is intended for GSM service only not CDMA. Next time if you want to use your service on a compatible phone you should do some research, I've been down that road myself before but with a a cell phone that is intended for global use but didn't have the appropriate band usage here in the United States.

Although that make sense, there are GSM Xperias that are compatible with Verizon, such as the Xperia XZ2 Compact

That might be, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep the conversation respectful and constructive. this is a global user based forum, we are to help each other.
