If you buy a phone from any company/indavidual "it's yours" period. What you do with it is not Verizon, Sprint or anybody else's business. If a carrier offers a service you can use YOUR phone to access their service if it is compatible and you pay for it. You nerds that talk about TOS and crap like that are the reason why we are losing our rights and freedom every day. Stand up for yourself. Do not let Big Brother and his agents of fear Verizon, Sprint etc. push you around.
