Could my old blackberry phone be used on a new Verizon Plan?
Cinnamoncooks4u

Hello,

I had a Blackberry phone that was used on an Alltel plan. When Verizon took over I then used the Blackberry with the Verizon plan. My question is would the Blackberry phone still be usable on another Verizon plan? I have been told that it will not work and want some good advice please...

It is an Alltel branded phone?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I believe it would say it somewhere on the phone.  If it is an Alltel branded phone, you can't activate anymore on a Verizon Wireless account.  This restriction went in place sometime in the first half of 2012, I think.  would remember better then I do.
