European unlocked iPhone 4 ?

I currently have an iphone 4 which i bought while living in Sicily.  It came already unlocked.  Can I use it with Verizon Wireless service?  Do they offer sim cards yet, or will I need to go to another provider?  Thanks!

At&t or T-Mobile is your only option. If you want 3G that limits you to AT&T unless you can find a regional carrier that supports the same 3G bands.

hey, welcome to the country! if you have an unlocked iPhone 4, then thats great, at&t uses GSM networks, and verizon uses CDMA, the original iPhone 4 that is not sold by verizon does not come with a GSM antenna, I believe that the iPhone 4s carries both antennas. Im sorry, but the only options for you right now are either AT&T or T-Mobile, if I were you, i'd go with AT&T, they have more coverage than T-Mobile, and offers faster 3G speeds, to be honest, I dont know about the pricing for either networks. Good luck with your iPhone and if you need more help, let me know, ill be happy to assist!

Hello loribeth,

Congrats on getting an unlocked iPhone! There are many benefits of having an unlocked device, of which I'm sure that you are aware of. As victorbraga98 stated, the Verizon iPhone 4 does not use a sim card. If you would like to have Verizon Wireless service then we have an alternative option for you! You can trade in your iPhone 4 using this link to our trade-in program.

Once you trade in your device, you will receive a gift card by mail, of which you can use to purchase a Verizon compatible iPhone 4S. Apple has made several enhancements to their iPhone! Some of which are an all new 8 megapixel camera, a dual-core processor, and a smart antenna that switch network technologies automatically when traveling internationally. To learn more about the new iPhone 4S and to order one, please see the link below.
