Motorola V60 switch to Verizon?

    If they use the same technology as AT&T, this is called TDMA,
    (or GSM in more 'urban areas')

    Verizon uses CDMA, which is a totally different technology.

    So, sorry no. You will have to get new phones. Doesn't Verizon
    have any free or quite inexpensive phones for new subscribers?
