Verizon Wireless has made it somewhat easier to activate select non-Verizon smartphones on its network. People who own an iPhone 6 or Nexus 6 can add Verizon service to their handset as long as it meets several key criteria. A new support page on Verizon's web site provides step-by-step instructions that help people determine if their handset is compatible with Verizon's network. If it is, users will be able to insert a Verizon SIM card and initiate service. Verizon said the device has to be unlocked prior to activation. The idea is to make it easier for people to switch to Verizon by allowing them to use their existing equipment. The program also helps Verizon satisfy some regulatory requirements with regard to allowing non-branded devices access its LTE network.
