Anyone know if the Samsung folder 2 could work on Verizon Wireless?

IINM that is currently only in the Korean market.

VZW uses unique LTE bands, so unless a phone was designed to be truly universal, not very likely.

Wow, just what I need. Is it an unlocked phone? Would it work with GSM carriers in the US?>

This doesn't support GSM, it works only on LTE, and probably doesn't support LTE bands of carriers other than Verizon in the US.

I am almost ready to give up on this phone. The flip format with physical keypad and light weight are the major things still keeping me on it, but otherwise there are many cons (bad sound quality, bad reception, no outside screen to see who's calling or to see time).

I am actually toying with the idea to switch to the Apple watch, now that it can make phone calls and send and receive texts, but I'm afraid it might have some issues.

I think this one does an outside screen, no? Also why would it have bad reception if it works on LTE?

I have it. You are welcome to see it in action.

I can only compare it to the reception I had with my iPhone, and I can tell you that it isn't as good. It supports less bands than the iPhone does. Also, the iPhone supports 3G, not only 4G while the LG only supports 4G LTE on VERIZON bands.

Also forgot to mention that bluetooth doesn't always connect automatically in my car.

I don't think that is available in the US market.

I am describing my experience with the LG Exalt LTE  aka LG VN220 which is available exclusively for Verizon.
