I'm currently using curve on Tmobile but my brother-in-law who has Verizon is looking to buy a used Alltel 8830. Does anyone know if it can be done?

In theory yes question is will verizon let you activate it on their system?

Currently, Verizon will not allow a non-Verizon phone on their network. Same with Sprint. There are some exceptions, such as if the ESN is in the Verizon database. But to be safe, don't but the device and hope you can activate it. Not worth the troubles.
