Can i use a cell phone from a diffrent carrier on my verizon pplan?

i was told that i could use this phone on mu verizon plan even though the cell phone isnt a verizon phone. so do any of you ladies know if this is possible? i was told the phone was flashed so it could cause i guess the person who had it before me said she used it on a verizon account....i jus want to know if this is possible.

  • Probably not, most carries only allow their own phones.

  • If the phone is unlocked then yes, but if it is from a different carrier more than likely it won't work on their network. If she said that it worked with Verizon before then it is probably an unlocked phone.

  • You can go online to your account and deactivate your current phone and activate your new one.
