    Lightbulb HTC one unlocked AT&T 64gb on verizon pay as you go?

    Hi Im new to phones, i just have a tracphone now. i have been looking at the HTC one and want the 64gb version and only AT&T have it, it is listed on their website as about $700 with no contract, i have a couple questions.

    Is no contract the same as unlocked?

    and can i be on a Verizon pay as you go plan with an unlocked HTC one?

    Thanks in advance,
    TheManninGauze

    No. Completely different concepts. "Unlocked" on any android phone generally means the phone's OS is unlocked so that you can install custom software on it, and replace the entire OS with a "custom ROM".

    "No Contract" means that you've either paid full retail for a phone, and not the sunsidized 2-yr contract price. It may also refer to "pre-paid" phone service as opposed to "post-paid" service.

    and can i be on a Verizon pay as you go plan with an unlocked HTC one?
    Nope.

    ATT and Verizon use completely different and incompatible network technologies. A phone built to work on ATT's GSM-based network will not function on Verizon's CDMA-based network.
