Default Can a Cingular BB be used on Verizon network?

Please Login to Remove!

My girlfriend has Verizon and she has the Glyde phone and hates it. She wants to get a new phone but money is tight for her. I have an almost new Curve that was used on Cingular and am wondering if there is any way she can use it on her Verizon account.

Thanks

No. Cingular (AT&T) uses GSM, Verizon uses CDMA. Two different technologies.

You might consider selling it on this site, or trading it straight up for a Verizon model.
