Can you use a Verizon cell phone with cingular plan?
No, you can not use a Verizon provided phone on a Cingular network, unless it is an unlocked phone. Most of cell phones you get with service provider (e.g. Verizon) plans and deals are locked to that particular network and can not be used with another service provider's network unless you unlock the phone.
Also - Cingular (now AT&T) is a GSM carrier and Verizon Wireless is a CDMA carrier. Each uses different cell phone technology making them incompatable. You can use an AT&T phone and switch it to a go phone once your contract runs out or visa versa. Sometimes pay as you go phones are the best option.
The cell phone known as the LG enV touch can only be used with the Verizon Wireless cell phone service. Verizon is the only service that can be used with the LG enV touch because Verizon bought the phone from LG and LG signed a contract with Verizon stating that this phone will not be used on any other services.
Some Verizonwireless phones will work out of a contract box; but there are some that will not. Ex. The Lg Dare, will not work on a Verizon prepaid plan. This also works the opposite way, you can take an impluse Verizon phone and use it on any Verizon plan. This can save you alot of money!!!! No matter what anyone else says, I activate phones for a living right now so I know it works!!!
If there were a 2 year contract with alltel and it sold out to Verizon but Verizon no longer carries the same plan could the service be disconnected without breaching contract?
The best pre-paid cell phone plan is TracFone by Verizon Wireless. With TracFone, the user will get the same Verizon Wireless coverage and will not be locked into a contract. The user will pay per minute, but will have to add minutes to their account at least once a month. A sixty minute card usually sells for $20.00, but can be found cheaper on sale or with promotional codes.
