    No, because only Net10 handsets have the programming that will accept Net10 minutes. The handsets and the minutes go together. You can probably use your phone with PagePlus though, which is a good alternative. The data functions might not work, however.

    Thanks

    thank you for your reply...I live way up in the mountains, the only signal is a weak verizon. I guess I'll just get a net10 that works on the verizon cdma service signal. Thanks for your answer!

    Save money by following Lisme's advice about Page Plus Cellular. If you've got a Verizon Wireless phone already, you're 80% of the way there, and the minutes are cheaper. There's no voodoo involved. You can do everything necessary online, or just do the activation online and buy minutes locally (where available).

    and buying a net10 phone that uses verizon's network isn't gonna change anything if verizon's signal already sucks at your location.

    maybe check out an AT&T net10 phone to see if coverage is better.
