  • Q: Is your account prepay ?

    This expert is helping you out because there weren't many active Verizon Wireless experts.

    I'm assuming this its a prepay phone. International rates vary by country. Some can be $2.49/ min. If there isn't sufficient money on the account you will get that message. Also you must have requested the international dialing be added to your account. If you need further assistance you can call customer service at 800 922 0204. People on this forum have no access to your account.

      I ALSO WONDER IF VERIZON CDMA PHONES CAN BE UNLOCKED WITH GSM SIM CARDS
    • 520 answers • 83% helpful

      I'm sorry but they cannot. CDMA & GSM are 2 completely different technologies. In addition, recently the FCC made it impossible to unlock devices from one carrier for domestic use on another carrier.
