Default Unlock from T-mobile to Verizon

I was in my T-Mobile kiosk talking to one of the employes there (kool guy) that has the same phone and asked if he knew about unlocking the Samsung Note II in order to make it operate w/ Verizon. I asked, would there be any issues if I unlocked mine and sold it to a friend who wants it to be on Verizon.

He said, it will have spotty coverage and not work 100% as a 4GLTE phone on their network because the T-mobile (radio) phone was built specifically for T-mobile. Do you know if their is any truth to that or, should I take this question somewhere else ?

Thanks

It won't work at all. Verizon phones ate cdma and don't get their subscriber info from the sim like a gsm phone does

Your friend will have bought a cool 5.5in wifi tablet. He wasn't lying though. Spotty coverage (none), not 100% on lte (nor even 1%). I'd buy it though. If the price was right...

I switched from Verizon to TM June,16th so it's relatively new. What in your mind is the right price ?

Thanks!

I'd ask for $200 and hope to get $170 if I was married to selling to a guy who was only going to be able to use it as a tablet. On Tmo or AT&T I'd ask for $350 or so. I don't sell on though and don't dabble in the used market (too many people get screwed). YMMV.

Good choice.

I wasn't making an offer. Just answering your question as to what I I thought the N2's year old design was worth used in the face of the great stuff out there now.

Besides, I doubt many people will care how much it cost you X months ago. They will care about it's condition and value it represents to them as a buyer.

YMMV.

I never offered to sell it. YOU said you'd by it for the right price that's the only reason the question of price even got brought up.

Nuff said.
