Unlocked Non-Verizon phones to use on Verizon Network

by techidiot / May 14, 2004 8:41 AM PDT

I have a verizon plan with 6 months left on my contract. My cell phone LCD was smashed but the phone still works for calls. I would like to replace the phone, but don't want to spend $250 for a verizon phone that I don't even like if I can get a much better phone for the same price through another vendor or on ebay. How do I know what phones are compatibe with verizon? Anyone know if the Motorola V300-400-600s would work?

If you find a phone on ebay all you have to do is email them and get the IMEI number located inside the phone under the battery and call your provider to see if this phone will work with that particular provider. Good Luck

i have verizon also.if u resign with them for a year or two u can get a rebate on ur next phone. u should check into it at ur nearest verizon store. i have been with them for a little over 2 years now. and since i have the new every two on my account i have a 100 dollar rebate waitin for me when i decide to resign with them. i am just waitin for the right phone with the features i want to come out. also i have the phone ins. on my account too. if u do u may get a new phone that way. also they may be able to just replace the lcd for u at the verizon store's tech service department.
hope this helps answer ur question.

Any CDMA Phone will work on a verizon system is it is unlocked. I would advise you to not get any prepaid phone like a Tracphone or a Virgin Mobile. htey are unprogramable. I would ask the seller before buying. Or go down to the Verizon store with the phone's information before buying also.


Good Luck!
