    Yes, but you first have to get or make sure the Storm is unlocked.

    No this is not possible. Verizon runs on a CDMA network - no sim cards. T-mobile is on a GSM network same as at&t. You cannot mix networks

    The Storm is a tri-network phone or rather a world phone. It runs CDMA, GSM, and HSDPA. It also a SIM slot/SIM card.

    The frequencies on the GSM side (sim card) are for international roaming not north american use.

    I'm not exactly sure where you're getting your info from, but not only do I own a Storm (VZW), I've unlocked it a popped in a T-Mobile and an AT&T SIM card (prepaid). They both work. You can also go here and see plainly that it's quad-band GSM and thus supports any GSM network on the planet. It does not, however, support every HSDPA network, only the international ones.

    You are correct, I was wrong. :blush:

    Modes CDMA 850 / CDMA 1900
    GSM 850 / GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900
    WCDMA 2100

    So go for it!
    :)
