Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

 

Forgive me, but I can not find anything on the Z4 page that specifically mentions it can use the 5G Mod. Did I miss it (where did you find this info on what web page)?

 

However, on the web page, under tech specs, it does say "Compatible with all moto mods".

 

I read a tech review that says the 5G Mod will not work on the unlocked version of the phone, only works on the Verizon version.

 

I would think that if you are correct, Motorola would have touted such on the web page?

 

Thanks again for your help.

My apologies.  I forgot there were two pages for the Z4 on the Moto website, one for the Unlocked version and one for the Verizon version.  The Verizon page does mention the 5G Mod but the Unlocked page does not. So I assume that means it's not compatible right away?  Maybe that will come later?

Hi.

 

Good question. The 5G moto mod is compatible only with moto z3 and moto z4 devices sold at Verizon stores. See www.verizon.com/about/our-company/5g for details.

 

Thanks!

I live in downtown Chicago, one of the first Verizon 5G areas. There is a VZW 5G antenna outside my apartment on the corner of my block about 300 ft away.  I had a VZW Moto Z2 up until last Wednesday and a 5G Moto Mod and would receive 5G service after the Moto Z2 upgraded to Android Pie at the end of last July.

 

Last Wednesday I upgraded to the Z4 and the 5G Moto Mod works great.

 

Here are some screenshots of my Z4 when connected to 5G.

 

Notice the "5GUWB" (5G Ultra Wide Band) connection notification on the home screen - the second two screenshots are readings from the app's history (open signal, and speedtest.net) I was connected to 5G when those tests were made but not when I took the two screenshots of the app history log - That's why it says 4GLTE on both of those screens.

 

Fair to say that 5G is blazing fast.
