    Hello,
    I do not think you will be able to use your existing Tmobile phone on Verizion. These companies use two different cell network technologies, Verizion and Sprint use CDMA and pretty much everyone else in the world uses GSM. I am pretty certain that your phone is a GSM phone and will never work on a CDMA network. Here is an article explaining the differences http://gizmodo.com/5637136/giz-explains-gsm-vs-cdma
    I am currently with Sprint, I switched two years ago after being with Verizion for over 5 years. I switched because of the crappy way that Verizion treats their existing customers and their substandard customer support. I experience the same issues with Verizion FIOS so it must be an ingrained problem with Verizion as a company!
    Good luck
    Robert

    Either post on craigslist asking if there is anyone out there that would trade with you or sell it on craigslist. I just sold one on craigslist for $200 electronics as far as phones really sell right now. Or take it in and ask them to switch it to there company. But to tell you the truth I do not recommend that I did that once and I didn’t get as good of service.

    well lex diamonds did you leave tmobile on a good note or do you owe them money? if u owe them money Verizon will not let you use the phone. I also believe Verizon does not unlock from other carriers regardless unless you purchased originally unlocked. so that leaves you with wifi a somewhat controversial alternative depending on who you talk to
    good luck lex
