I bought a prepaid gophone from AT&T some months ago. But now I want to test how good Verizon's coverage is. Can I use this old phone I bought from AT&T's website (a Pantech Link) with Verizon's pay as you go plan? Or do I have to buy a phone from Verizon?

Thanks,

Timothy

Verizon Wireless and ATT use two different networks for their voice services. The GSM phone from ATT won't work on the CDMA network used by Verizon Wireless. You need a Verizon Wireless branded device.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
