The cost isn't that small. They have to redo antennas, firmware, and retest all to release a device that is barely different than what they currently offer for those carriers. They will get the Catwalk instead most likely. No one else got Lumia 822 did they?

What other carrier has a Lumia with a number ending in !=0? Verizon is currently the only one, and it is a carrier-specific model. TMO is getting one, and it is a carrier-specific model. No way is this CDMA phone going to go outside the US, even though it will have GSM radios in it.

Yup. And the question I asked would be "What other carrier has a Lumia with a number ending in not 0?"

Just because Verizon's smart phones are also world phones (having GSM radios and such), does not mean they are sold elsewhere. You still have to get it from a US seller.
