Unlock a Verizon iPhone 4 for Net 10?

Hello, I have a Verizon iPhone 4 that I would like to use with Net 10, and I am wondering if it's possible. Also, what method of unlocking will definitely work with what I want to do?

Verizon iPhone 4 has no GSM side to it to start off. Next, Verizon has to unlock it (and they aren't happy about doing that). Also, I think 99.9% sure, that Net10 is GSM.

The Verizon iPhone 4 does not have the hardware to support GSM networks. If you're not going to use it with Verizon then your best bet is to sell it to someone and use the money towards an AT&T iPhone 4.

Thanks, that's exactly what I'm going to do.
