Can any phone be prepaid?

    A friend of mine doesn't have good credit and as a result, the Verizon rep gave him an astronomically high deposit amount before they'd give him a contract. It was something like $300 if I remember correctly. So now he's thinking maybe he'll just go prepaid. Can he buy any Verizon phone (like off eBay, for example) and sign up for prepaid with it?

    No, Verizon restricts what phones they will activate on prepaid accounts.

    I figured they would probably restrict which phones you can use. Gregg, not to send your friend away from Verizon, but if he doesn't like any of the phones that they do offer with prepaid, he might come out better to check into other non-contract carriers.
