I respectfully disagree. Verizon is largest US carrier, if Verizon doesn't promote, but BlackBerry does, I think it will pay off.
MNSHO.

I don't think the added cost would be that much. Since they make them for Verizon, wouldn't it be easier to do all the phones that way?

You could buy an att phone, get it updated and unlock it to run on Verizon. Problem of updates and security patches solved.

Unlocked AT&T phones don't have CDMA Radio.
Wrong band for LTE, I've checked with Verizon, it's no go.
Specially an AT&T Passport.

I know DL. But if they were all made the same, i.e. dual GSM and CDMA then they would work. And a person on the Verizon network could buy an AT&T phone and unlock it to Verizon and still get the AT&T updates.

That's correct. Got a notification from someone that really jumped on Verizon harder than I did. He got a response that Verizon has Marshmallow.

Doesn't make sense because CDMA needs to be registered and activated with carrier, not SIM dependant

Agree, but we are not discussing SIM cards as far as I know. It's the Radio file needed.
If Verizon has all phones unlocked for GSM and CDMA, why can't BlackBerry release them that way.
That was my point. And I'm familiar with CDMA, Wikipedia explains it nicely.
