You've come to the right place for help RevKent. I know how important it is to make sure your phone will work on a Postpaid VZW account. We're happy to help.

 

The iPhone SE is a 4G device, and 4G Prepaid devices are restricted to 1 month of fully funded use on Prepaid service. This does not mean that you must use the phone on prepaid service for a month, but a month's payment is necessary to unlock the phone. After the device is active and the 1 month/funded plan payment is processed it can take up to 48 hours for the device to be fully unlockedfor postpaid. Once it's unlocked it can be activated on a Postpaid account. 

 

Do you already have a VZW Postpaid account, or are you looking to start new service? We're here if you need further assistance.

Are you a Straight Talk customer/account holder?  Then yes. 

If you are a regular, post-paid Verizon account customer, then the Straight talk phone needs to be used on a pre-paid (Straight Talk) account for 6 months before you can use it on a post-paid account.

I have a Verizon Prepaid plan now on my current phone. I saw an iPhone SE in Straight Talk packaging and wondered if I can use the iPhone SE from Straight Talk under my Verizon Prepaid plan.
