    I was looking on PhoneScoop and the XV also has a GSM radio - GSM 850/900/1800/1900, GSM on DuraXV variant only. Those are US frequencies. This could work on AT&T or T-Mobile if unlocked I imagine though GSM is being put to sleep but on the upside while its still available their are less and less people crowding it and no one using data on it.

    I'd be curious if you opened it up to see if there is a sim slot. There has to be but maybe that is a misquote by PS.

    When I looked at the online user guide last week, it does show a SIM Slot.

    This phone would be even more desirable for me if I could switch between networks.

    I haven't seen CNET review it yet but when they do I hope they touch on the GSM part of it. I suppose if you could get one straight from Kyocera it may work on ATT/Cricket.

    Amen Times 10.

    I can only assume nobody out there attempts it because of patents held by BlackBerry. I loved BlackBerry throughout my youthful smartphone years and resisted transition as long as I could, but they did something seriously wrong to stagnate and never recovered. BlackBerry does have a new "Classic" which has the physical keyboard and latest OS compatible with Android that I am tempted to give a try, but it seems too expensive for the overall package...

    Do those Convoy's work with LTE MicroSIM's? Like old school GSM where I could change over to it on certain days when I feel like a change from my Galaxy S4?

    The Convoy doesn't have a SIM.

    Wonder if all it needs is a SIM Swap and an unlock code.

    +1 for the LG Chocolate3.

    A really well-balanced flip phone for its era. The dual color screen with jog-wheel, along with 3.5mm audio Jack and 1GB internal storage, allowed me to use it as a pseudo iPod-player. Because of this, I could listen to MP3s while scrolling through the photo gallery or scanning my Twitter SMS feed without ever opening the clamshell!

    PROS:
    - EV-DO r0 capable
    - UI was differentiated from VZW's infamous "Red" feature phone OS
    - Useful music-centric features such as 3.5mm Jack, dual external speakers
    - Camera design & dedicated shutter key allowed for selfies
    - Minty blue color scheme available
    - Moddable for use on PPC (thanks to how-to guide found on HoFo)

    CONS:
    - Slim form factor meant shorter battery life
    - Shiny membrane keypad was sub-optimal for T9
    - Slippery exterior was prone to drops & scratches

    IMO the pros still outweighed the cons! In hindsight this was a better phone than both its predecessor (Chocolate2) & successor (Chocolate Touch)...
    Glad to be off contract since 2010...
