    Hi All,
    I'm in a bit of a strange situation. I am currently under contract with Verizon with an iPhone 4. I am moving out of the country in August and would like to have an unlocked iPhone to take with me since it's obnoxiously expensive to buy one there ($700). My question is thus twofold:

    1. Can I deactivate my CDMA Iphone and then sell it on eBay without any problems?
    2. Can I then purchase an unlocked iPhone from eBay and rig it to work on ATT's prepaid network, using it until I leave the country and then when I arrive?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1. If you have an ETF, you will have to pay it. Otherwise, the ESN will be blacklisted and the phone will be unusable on VZW network.

    2. I see no problem with this.
