Hello, do you have this phoen with Verizon ?
Customer reply replied 6 years ago.

yes, it is with Verizon

 

Richard S., Accounts and Device Specialist replied 6 years ago.
Hello, that is what I thought. Verizon does not have SIM cards in any of their phones besides their International phones and the SIMS in those are ONLY for use when roaming on other carriers GSM networks (which require SIM cards.)

Verizon uses CDMA which is a integrated chipset and does not require or allow SIM cards.

That being said, what are you looking to do so I can see if I can help you out!

I am going to Thailand next week.

 

I have bought a Nokia X3 02 and wonder what are my options.

 

The Nokia is a quad, unlocked phone.

 

Richard S., Accounts and Device Specialist replied 6 years ago.
Ok, and you want your Verizon phone number to work in Thailand? Or just want to use a phone while there?
Customer reply replied 6 years ago.

so what can I do?

 

Do I carry two phones in order to communicate?

 

Richard S., Accounts and Device Specialist replied 6 years ago.
Your Verizon phone will NOT work in Thailand, it is 100% CDMA. can you tell em what you are looking to achieve? do you need your VERIZON phone number to ring in Thailand etc or do you just need A phone to use while over there and do not care about the phone number?
Customer reply replied 6 years ago.

If my Verizon phone rings, will I see it ring and be able to see the number dialing?

 

Then can I call back on the international phone so that it is cheaper for me? In this sense I would be carrying 2 phones and that is ok with me.

 

Is there a better way? what is the cheapest thing for me to do?

Richard S., Accounts and Device Specialist replied 6 years ago.
Nope, it wont have service at all. How long will you be there?
Customer reply replied 6 years ago.

I will be there for 2 weeks.

 

Maybe I'll just have to call anyone important and give them my International phone number?

 

Richard S., Accounts and Device Specialist replied 6 years ago.
Ok, If you NEED your VERIZON number to ring when you are over there, I would use the Verizon Global travel program (see link below.)

basically, they provide you with one of their Global phone to use while youa re travelling and that way you can keep in touch (it is pretty spendy per minute so maybe use it as little as possible and MAKE SURE you keep it safe, people loose them all the time!!)

You cna also bring your Nokia and get a pre-paid SIM card while you are there for a few Baht (I have beenm there and LOVED IT!) And use that for local calls as you need it. I did that but actually did not end up using it that much.

ANy questions? Are you going for fun?
