I’m a bit tech illiterate when it comes to this sort of thing and I couldn’t find a definite online, maybe someone here can help. I currently have an S7 that I purchased through Verizon and am looking to leave them. While the SM-G930V is not compatible with Republic, the SM-G930U is. This may be a “duh” question, but is the “V” in the model number something that keeps me married to Verizon’s service with this phone or is this something that can be changed by Verizon to G930U so that I could use Republic? I know you can sometimes pay your carrier to unlock a phone but I was under the impression that Verizon sells unlocked phones to begin with. I would love to hold on to my phone but a lot of my options are requiring me to buy another.
Thanks for your time.
