You will HAVE to buy a phone from Verizon, or an authorized Verizon reseller, for it to work on Verizon. They will not activate a phone on the Verizon network that they did not sell themselves.

I would suggest looking at using one of the locally available GSM carriers in New Jersey if you want to use your own phone (Lumia 730). T-Mobile or AT&T or one of their prepaid options might work best.

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

Verizon uses CDMA as primary.  GSM phones are not compatible with CDMA.

Thank you for your valuable reply, but would also love to know, that if I get some US version unlocked device which operates on CDMA technology, then will I be able to use the network or not

My advice is to find a Verizon-branded device at a Verizon store when you arrive in New Jersey.  That is the least confusing path to take.
