Can a T-Mobile device be used on Verizon?

Miembro

Need help to resolve if a T Mobil phone can be used on Verizon's network or not?  I've been told the two networks are incompatiable ?  But have also read that one could be granted permission from Verizon to obtain a Electronic Serial Number to be coded with the phone thus allowing it to work on their network?  Has anyone been successful in doing this ?  Agradezco cualquier tipo de ayuda.

Thank you

In most cases, no you cannot use a Tmobile phone on Verizon. There are a few exceptions. If you tell us the exact model of the phone in question (which includes the model number), we can tell you if it will work on Verizon.

It is very true that the two system are not compatible for a number of reasons: Tmobile is GSM and Verizon is CDMA based. The frequencies each system uses if completely different. So you need a phone that supports both GSM and CDMA technology and supports all the frequencies used at Tmobile AND Verizon. There are very few phones that can do both.

There are actually more Verizon phones that are compatible with Tmobile than there is Tmobile phones compatible with Verizon.

J929,

Help is here! We certainly want to make sure you enjoy the phone you are using. This is a great question, as it can be done with certain phones. Since we do have very different networks, even if we can get a phone from another carrier to activate, we cannot guarantee that all features/functions of the phone will work. Can I ask why you want to use another carrier's phone? Are there any issues with your current Verizon phone that we can help with? Below is a list of devices from other carriers that can be activated on our network.

•    Apple iPhone 6

•    Apple iPhone 6 Plus

•    Apple iPhone SE (A1662 only; A1723 is not compatible)

•    Apple iPhone 6s

•    Apple iPhone 6s Plus

•    Nexus 6

The iPhone 6 from T-mobile is likely a GSM version only. 

Your best bet is to run the IMEI here. Trae tu propio teléfono o dispositivo - BYOD | Verizon Wireless

Tmobile iPhone 6 is actually one of the few that will work.
