It'll work on networks world-wide with the exception of most CDMA networks & LTE support varies depending if you get the North American or European models.

Just to add all Nexus devices are factory Unlocked which is one of the major selling points of the Nexus line as well as being the first phones to be updated with the newest version of Android for as long as the specs allow.

"...as long as specs allow". Galaxy Nexus users would beg to differ given the news that they won't get KitKat, despite 4.4 being optimized for use on devices with even lower specs than GNex.

From what I've heard it's due to the processor that's in the GNex & the company who made it not being in business anymore.

I kinda wish the Nexus S didn't receive the 4.1 update, or even the 4.0 update.

That could be another worry from them is they don't want to push it's hardware because ya the Nexus S was a great little device till it got 4.1 JB then it became almost unusable.

Nexus devices come unlocked no matter where they're purchased. There must be some other reason why it doesn't work with other carriers (if you've tested it).

Sorina if you have a nexus 5 that wont work with other networks make sure you are searching manually for the new network as sometimes the nexus wont find other carriers automatically.

Factory unlocked and the first guinea pigs for software releases. Seems to me that in relation to units sold, there are relatively more problems reported on this board with Nexus vs Samsung or Apple. Newer software does not necessarily mean bug-free. Give me my vintage (a whole 1.5 years old already!) Samsung Note II that hasn't seen a system software update for a long while. Oh and you will have to pay for some sort of plan with Koodo for at least the first month in order for them to sell you ANY phone.

The nexus series does not come in a locked version. The primary selling feature is that it comes factory unlocked no matter where it is purchased.
