    nah. It has to be gsm (sim card). That rules out verizon and sprint

    On a side note: why is your friend even on verizon. Doesnt he know that t-mobile is THE best carrier in the world? Best of the best. Service, price, call quality, and fastest EDGE in the civilized world. The total shiznit. Tell him to get with the program!

    It will never happen. Verizon doesnt use a sim card.

    Absolutely no. It's not just asbout a SIM card. It has to be a GSM network:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GSM

    GSM is the dominating standard in the world except in the US and Japan as far as I know. In the US, the only two GSM carriers are T-Mobile and AT&T. The iPhone has a GSM radio module (hardware) built in, which means it's physiclly only able to communicate with GSM networks, i.e. T-Mobile and AT&T.

    Verizon and Sprint have a CDMA network. Different technology, different hardware. No go.

    yeah dude. Its the network that is not campatible with the phone. World phones are gsm sim capable for roaming. You can make a phone gsm capable but you can't change the network. Get it? When the phone is in Mexico it uses gsm. When in the u.s it uses cdma. The iPhone doesn't have CDMA capabilities so it can't be used on CDMA networks.

    might be that some nextel models or all nextel models has both frequencies, iphone only has one frequency which is GSM, and no other, so you cant put it to work on CDMA frequency, about the logo, you can put ANY logo you want, wanna know how??

    check this link, there is the verizon logo
