    Go to Straight Talk/Tracfone Compatibility Test put in the ESN and see if the phone is eligible. (If it's not, you can't, and there's no way around that so don't bother asking.) If it is, buy a Verizon package from Straight Talk or Walmart and follow the directions.

    Since Verizon is CDMA, there's no GDM SIM lock and you can't ""unlock" what's not locked. (CDMA phones are "locked" by the carrier allowing or not allowing that particular phone on their network.)
