Cell Phone Query?

Hi ladies, I was wondering about cell phone carrier is AT&T but I really like a phone that Verison carries. My question is can I make any phone work with my AT&T carrier as long as it is not "locked". In other words could I buy an "unlocked" phone of Ebay for instance and put my smartchip in it and it will work even though At&t doesn't carry this particular phone?

  • As long as it isn't locked and as long as it has a place in the back for your SIM card then I dont see why not.

  • No. My DH used to work for AT&T and the phones are two different types of technology. Verizon is CDMA, and AT&T is GSM. The only company that would sell phones compatible with ATT is T-Mobile if I remember correctly.
