Your question doesn't make sense; thats impossible. . In general No a Verizon phone will not work on Koodo

Verizon is basically CDMA so most of their gear has no SIM; their first line technology relies on the IMEI number of the phone and is incompatible with GSM.

In the past while, they have rolled out some hybrid phones with SIM slots to additionally accommodate LTE data. Thus the consumer's understandable confusion over SIM cards. But you are basically correct: their gear will not work.

Hi Jirah, 

You can use this tool to make sure it will work on our network :http://koo.do/1aU1u0o  If so, then you can have the phone unlocked when you activate it with us on a new account. Hope that helps :)
