    Default Will an unlocked 9930 still work on Verizon?

    OK here is the deal. i commited murder on my 9930 today (by accident) and it is toast. it got ran over . I am planning on a Z-10 but need a phone for work. I can get a refurbished unlocked 9930 for 149.00 on Amazon from a reputable dealer. Will it still work on Verizon? Or if you have one to sell talk to me.I am still able to use my playbook and text throught the 9930 and read email but thats it. I got Verizon to forward calls to my home phone but that doesnt help me next week for work in Vegas. Sorry I am a bit freaked out dont know what to do

    2 things you need to make sure, 1 it is verizon branded and 2 the ESN is clean (phone is not reported as stolen). AFAIK, on CDMA networks you can 't unlock another carrier branded phone and use it on verizon. I think on smaller networks like metro PCS and cricket it is possible to flash and use ESN from different network.

    Good to know. I thought a sprint phone might be able to work with vzw and vice verse. Thanks.

    No, the two carriers will not cross carry the others' devices. Some of the discount carriers may allow a flashed phone, but Sprint and Verizon won't.
