caite123,


That's a great question and we're happy to help see if that device will work out. Our devices would be made specifically for our network so another carriers device may have compatibility issues, but we can check to be sure. If you have the IMEI or device ID you can easily check compatibility online by going to http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/estore/certifieddevice/cd?_requestid=408253.
