    My current vzw dumbphone is falling apart and I have a few old sprint cdma phones lying around. Is it possible to activate them on verizon's network? Is there a place to check which phones are compatible?

    While possible, this is very unlikely. VZW still doesn't allow other carriers' devices on its network.

    You can try an ESN switch on your own, but the system may still recognize it as a Sprint phone, telling you it cannot be done

    Thanks for the response. Looks like I will have to buy a used Verizon phone.

    (But I can't buy one from a forum member because those threads get shut down )

    Try asking around - I know many people have perfectly good cellphones lying around. Someone you know might have a 2 year old cellphone they had on VZW before they upgraded.

    I did try asking around, but someone complained about the thread and it was closed.

    One of my friends had an old vzw phone that he's letting me use until the 9630 comes out, so that should take care of everything.

    Thank you all for your advice and help

    Sure thing - I was meaning to ask friends. Much safer than online.
