Can I take an unlocked phone from TMobile to Verizon?

more options

From now on have 4 months remaining on TMobile contract w/ 4 phones.

    girlfriend gets NO coverage (not even emergency only calls) on her college campus; phones work in our house about 8% of time. Plan was to sit tight till contract expired and switch to Verizon. But two phones now experiencing problems with keyboard and want to act sooner. Cancellation penalty is $400.
    Can I buy an unlocked phone, use it on TMobile for duration of contract, then bring it to Verizon? i choose this NO.1 S7 phone on .someone talk about difference in technology between the two, but more current posts speculate that problem may no longer exist. HELP!

Verizon (CDMA) and T-Mobile (GSM )use two entirely different network technology. GSM uses a SIM card where CDMA doesn't; that type of memory is internal and nor removable.

AT&T uses GSM like T-Mobile does, so that's you best alternative.
