    You might be able to, but your best bet is to talk directly to T-Mobile. Visit their store so they can check out your phone. That's the simplest way to find out for sure.

    Yes, but it is not ideal.

    Verizon SIM trays are unlocked. That's the good news.

    However, if you are in an area that T-Mo has not refarmed for LTE, or travel through such an area, that variant is lacking the 1700 MHz band on 3G that T-Mo would use. No LTE and not the right 3G frequency would mean you only get EDGE speed. That is very slow.

    In a T-Mo area that has LTE you are only compatible with one band which they use. So that is hit or miss.


    Technically it would work, but your experience would probably not be a good one.
