    If I get an iPhone, will I be able to unlock it and get it on Verizon?

    Verizon phones have a SIM card on their international phones, like the BlackBerry, so can I use a SIM card to activate it?

    No you cant! Verizon uses CDMA phones, and they don't have sim cards. The sim cards in the blackberry's don't have any use in the US whatsoever. The sim cards are just incase you go to Europe and want to use your Verizon CDMA phone with a GSM network which is vodafone.

    Hopefully soon you will be able to... There are rumors that the iPhone 4 will soon come to an CDMA network.

    Okay. Thanks.

    I knew they were CDMA, but I didn't know what the SIM cards did.
