    Cubot P40 phone

    Anyone have any experience with these phones? This model has several features that I like. Notification LED, NFC, dual sim, 3.5mm jack among other things. Doesn't have wireless charging which is not a big deal. Ebay has brand new ones for $149.

    Unless there is another version, looks like that phone might not have the bands for the US carriers.

    Agree that the LTE bands need to be known. Some of the versions from China don't have the US bands at all.

    Those specs are different from their web site's specs.

    So I am not sure still.

    Dang! Knew it was too good to be true. Several sites indicate it won't work in the US. Had almost everything I was looking for, for a good price. Wish there was something else out there just like this one that will work in the US.

    I think maybe some of the Umidigi models might be the only ones with full US and most global band support that also has dual SIM.

    But please fully research any Umidigi model that you might consider to make sure it has all the bands for all US networks. I believe the F1 and F2 are 2 that do, but there are others, too.

    I also have no idea about notification LED.

    I have been thinking about the F2, it has everything I want, but there is some question as to it working in Verizon.. My current VZ sim is provisioned for "CDMA less" and my phone is set to LTE only and it works fine.. Amazon had it for $219 yesterday and I should have done it, but didn't.. regretting my decision now..

    There's a good amount of discussion in the General forum that the F1 and a few other Umidigi models currently DO work with Vzw VoLTE by inserting an already-activated Vzw SIM, so it's likely the F2 would as well.

    The problem is, Vzw COULD shut down the use of non-certified IMEIs on their network at any time, if they decide to. However, apparently so far, so good, based on those reports...

    That is true, but if that happened, I could just switch to an AT&T sim.. I am only on VZ because long ago I lived in a location that only had good VZ coverage.. I think AT&T is pretty good where I am at now..

    I'm leaning towards an F2 also. Ebay has them new in the box for $173.
