Used Verizon iPhone to AT&T

Used Verizon iPhone to AT&T

Hey all,

 

Just bought a used iPhone 4 off of craigslist.

After the deal was made, I realized she sold me a Verizon iPhone 4.

She restored the phone so it has nothing on it.

 

Do I just transfer my iphone 3gs SIM card to the new Verizon iPhone?

Yes, I am an AT&T customer with my contract being over/complete.

Would my data and minutes etc carry to the iPhone 4?

Thanks!

verizon utilizes CDMA, ATT is GSM, can't remember if the verizon 4 was a world phone with a sim slot but the problem is verizon would have to unlock it, if I recall the policy for any iphone prior to the 5, verizon only unlocks for international use on the sim card, You need to contact verizon and talk to them

I'm pretty sure the Verizon iPhone 4 is CDMA only and has no GSM radio and obviously, no sim slot.
