    If verizon is using CDMA (which i am not sure) technology, you are not going to be able to use iPhone's. Only GSM technology (with sim card)service provider can use iphone.And as iphone is a quad band phone, i think it supports all GSM frequencies.

    Believe it or not, Apple's contract with AT&T explicitly states that Apple is not allowed to produce a phone that is compatible with CDMA technologies, valid until 2012.

    Also, the iPhone 3G unlock isn't coming out until new year's eve, until then there's no good way to unlock an iPhone 3g.
