    No. Verizon will not activate phones not in their database.

    Verizon is a CDMA network, and doesn't use a SIM card on that network. Sprint and Verizon will not activate devices from each others' networks. Your friend was using the GSM feature of the 9650 on AT&T. It has radios for that side of the aisle.
