    Galaxy for Verizon?

    I just got the samsung galaxy s2 from another country and it has no markings of at&t or any provider on it. I have verizon wireless but I know this phone is generally an AT&T phone in america. Is there any way to unlock it so that it works for Verizon wireless? I'm not too familiar with GSM vs CDMA.
    Thanks

    Sorry but it's not possible to make a GSM phone work with Verizon wireless. Verizon uses CDMA wireless technology which is not compatible with GSM devices. All Verizon CDMA phones do not have sim cards, with the exception of the 4G devices.

    The international version of the Galaxy S2 will work with ATT and T-mobile.

    You would be better off selling it and picking up Samsung's Galaxy Nexus. Or switch to a GSM provider.
