Does ROG 6 tencent edition support CDMA sim.

Star I

I recently bought a Verizon Sim and installed in my device ROG 6. But I see I don't get a network. I just have this question whether the rog 6 dcent edition device works with the CDMA SIM or not, whether it has the relevant wireless bands for supporting the CDMA sim carrier.

AFAIK, the Tencent version doesn't support CDMA, so it's not compatible with Verizon/Sprint. You should sell it to at least get some money back and buy the US/North America version instead. 

Hey KTW thanks for the response actually I was not aware of the "tencent edition of rog 6".

I thought that was a specialised gaming version by ASUS ROG. My mistake and I bought it by Amazon and the seller did not list any of these details that this is not a phone for America market. Many people have bought in the same way I did. I think most of the people would have similar concerns. 


Does the ROG6 America version support all wireless bands like AT&t Verizon T-Mobile etc

I know that ROG 6 NA version is in AT&T's support list and the IMEI would pass T-mobile's compatibility test. I'm not sure about Verizon, but from the product description it looks incompatible with Verizon:

[US Version]
*Compatible with GSM Networks including AT&T, T-Mobile and MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) who utilize AT&T and T Mobile networks. This device is not compatible with CDMA Networks such as: Verizon and US Cellular.

Verizon has a very stingy phone policy so I'm not surprised anyway 😛


Here are the specs on the bands

  • 5G SA-only: N1/N3/N5/N8/N28, SA & NSA: N41/N77/N78/N79
  • FDD-LTE band: 1(2100), 2(1900), 3(1800), 4(1700/2100), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900),18(800),19(800),26(850), 28(700)
  • TD-LTE Bands: 34(2000), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500), 42(3500), 48(3600)
  • CDMA Bands: Support (BC0 800MHz) (No support CDMA2000 EVDO)
  • WCDMA Bands: 800 (19)/ 900(8)/ 850(5/6) / 1700(4) / 1900(2) / 2100(1)
  • EDGE/GPRS/GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)



If the bands are a concern then I'd recommend you to try to get a refund from the reseller and trying to get a US device from a verified reseller.

Tencent Edition phones are not supported outside of the area they were made for, which is China.
