No. It won't work on the Verizon Wireless network.

It might work on a GSM carrier like AT&T or T-Mobile.

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

VZW uses CDMA and only VZW born phones work well with its towers here us the state.  You can call VZW for clarity but this is what I've read numerous time before.
