    Yes. However, you won't be able to use the *228 activation if you are
    unable to get a VZW digital signal. You should be sure that you keep a
    somewhat up to date VZW PRL on the phone to ensure maximum coverage.

    If you don't have Internet access and you need to switch phones, you can
    call VZW from a land line to switch the ESN over the phone. There may be
    a fee for switching over the phone.
