I was wondering how you can get unlocked phones (or smartphones) to work with Verizon?

The reception for Verizon works best out of the carriers in my area but I really am not happy with the phone selection.

I'm using a RAZR v3c but want to move to a smartphone and don't really like the ones VZN offers...

What are my options (if any)?

THANKS!

not much. Verizon is CDMA based carrier. So they need to approve the phone you want to use. You can't just drop in a SIM and go with it.
