It only works on networks that use a SIM card. I don't know if Verizon 
uses a SIM card.

You can buy a SIM card from ATT, and probably from Tmobile as well. I 
think you can get a fixed amount of money on it with no commitment to a 
monthly account. I did that many years ago when I was testing phones. I 
can't remember the details, but I do remember that the store clerk first 
told me that it was impossible, and then later discovered that it was 
entirely possible.
