    The 401G is a GSM phone and works off AT&T and T-Mobile towers, not Verizon towers.

    your wifes phone does not work on verizon towers, it is a gsm phone it uses (AT&T/T-mobile)
    you may not have good at&t/tmobile service. you might want to get a phone that uses verzion towers
    (example - samsung R335C) C = works on verzion towers.

    Anyone that wants to varify their provider should keep the following link handy. If someone calls and you notice they have excellent service, use this link to see their carrier. Enter a cell phone number, click submit and you will see the provider top left of page two (then leave without signing up):
