Yes, you can activate it on a prepaid plan. You have 2 options on prepaid plans for smartphones

1. Unlimited talk and text w/ 2GB Data-$60 monthly

2. Unlimited talk and text w/ 4GB Data-$70 monthly

The prepaid plans do not have a contract or any activation fees.

The iPhone 4 does not use a SIM card on Verizon.

Yes, it ABSOLUTELY matters.

You CANNOT use a GSM model on Verizon.  Prepaid or otherwise.

Your title stated  "Friend gave me an iPhone 4 for Verizon".  So, is it a Verizon phone or not?

Yeah, then you will want to look at options compatible with AT&T.

Good luck with whatever service you choose.
