Yes you could, but you could not get LTE. The chipset also handles GSM. You'd pop out the SIM and use an AT%T sim. Apparently, Verizon has unlocked this. For example, you can also do this with an iPhone5 from Verizon. You could get fast HSPA+ internet, but not nearly as fast as LTE. If you want to use ATT just get an HTC 8x there and you'd get LTE.

Let me correct my first post. Here are the frequency specs for the Verizon 8X:
I didn't know it was a dual mode CDMA/GSM phone. It looks like it would work, GSM 850/1900 is listed, providing the GSM mode is unlocked and there's no AT&T blocks on the Verizon firmware.

It works with T-Mobile just fine. I have a friend with Tmobile and they also have a Windows 8x Phone. Their sim card worked great in my VZW 8x phone. It even said, "Changing to GSM mode". When I put my VZW sim in their TMobile 8x phone, it would not accept it.

OK, I know it's been awhile since the last post on this thread, but I need some help here. I am able to put an AT&T SIM into my wife's new Verizon HTC 8X and get everything working with ONE exception: MMS. And my wife has to have MMS; life can't go on without it... Has anyone have any ideas to help me out?webOS refugee

I'm not sure as far as the HTC phones go, but for Nokia you can install an access point app which adds an entry to the settings where you can edit APN settings. You may be out of luck though. With my old Samsung Focus I had to do some hacks to get it to work. Those hacks aren't possible on WP8.

Yes. I've done this exact scenario. You will get up to hspa+ download speeds. MMS will not work however. Verizon has hidden the ability to change the mms apn settings. HTC has an app called connection setup that could allow you to change the settings but the app is broken. It does not work for anyone and HTC hasn't updated the app in over a year. So no matter what mms will not work as if right now. That means no picture messages or group messaging. The only hope now is that the 8.1 update will allow us to access the necessary settings. Or if HTC decides to fix their app. Also the Nokia apn app is only compatible with lumia devices so that is also out of the question. I've tried everything. Developer unlocking and sideloading.. No solution for now.
