No need to unlock it, it's already a Verizon phone, just BYOD to prepaid.

  Make sure the Droid Razr is not a 4G, I believe it has to be a 3G version to work as a prepaid? I have a Droid Maxx and that doesn't do prepaid.

  I say to make sure because if you happen to purchase a prepaid card it may not be refundable if the phone doesn't support it.

It is a 4gLTE, I guess I can’t do it?

  Based on Verizon's own website in the link under FAQ's #1 it seems to indicate 4G is excluded. Sorry for the bad news, unless things have changed? But the link is from 2015.

No, you can bring a 4G LTE device.

The 3G only rule changed a while back.
