    Is it possible to use Nexus (bought from Google Play Store, GSM not CDMA) w/ Verizon

    I bought Galaxy Nexus about 2 months ago from Google Play Store, have been using the phone with T-moble $30 prepaid plan. Love the phone but the data speed really sucks in my work place. Although the speed is Ok in my house but I have wifi so my data service has been barely used in last 2 months. The only good data service in my work place is Verizon. My understanding is that Verizon use CDMA while my Nexus is GSM. Someone mentioned Verizon also do GSM in addition to CDMA (I couldn't remember where I read that).

    My question is -- Can I switch to Verizon with my current Galaxy Nexus? I prefer prepaid or no contract.

    Many thanks,

    Snow

    Pretty sure its a no. It doesn't have CDMA radios in it.

    Definitely a no as the hardware is different.
