the N95 is a GSM-phone, while Verizon uses another system called CDMA. Those are incompatible.
But maybe they have a CDMA-variant for the USA? Check the specs. If it only says GSM it's a no go with Verizon.

UMTS is linked to GSM.

So I really don't think. Why not call Verizon and ask to be VERY sure?

WCDMA refers to transfer of data, still not compatible w/ CDMA (voice services) on Verizon.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
