What else do I need to know when purchasing a phone in Amazon?

I'm currently with Verizon and need a temporary inexpensive smart phone for about 3 months before the new iphone comes out.  I just want to put my current sim card and have it work.   When shopping at Amazon or other vendors, do I make sure its "Unlock" and compatible to Verizon?  Is there other factors that I need to consider?  I never bought a phone outside of Verizon.

 I'm so happy that you reached out to us first. I want to make sure that you have all of the information. While shopping on Amazon, I would suggest that you obtain the IMEI number then check online or with us to make sure the device is not locked or listed as lost or stolen. 

 

May I ask what has happened with your current device? I wanted to see if there was an issue that we can possibly troubleshoot.
