    i bought a Huawei phone in Thailand and with my Verizone SIM card it worked great over there and in Vietnam. Now I have come back to USA and I cannot find a carrier. Any ideas of how to proceed or the best ways of selling this online?

    Just to be clear, Verizon buys bandwidth on Thai and Vietnamese carriers, so you were using them when you were there, you weren't using Verizon's own towers. The towers are, from what I can see, GSM. Verizon is CDMA. Two totally different technologies. It's like trying to adjust the color on an FM radio.

    Try swappa.com to sell the phone and buy one that works with Verizon - or just use TMobile or AT&T in the US, if the phone has 4G radios compatible with their networks. (We'd need the model number of the phone to have a chance of looking that up for you.)
