    I have an unlocked Galaxy Nexus (a gift) that works on Tmobile, via a SIM card, but does not have a sim card slot that fits the Verizon network. Has anyone solved this issue?

    That is the GSM Galaxy Nexus and won't work on Verizon's network.

    Thanks for the response. I was hoping there was some workaround.

    nope, they work on different systems completely.
    your nexus -GSM network only (t-mobile, at&t)
    verizon nexus - CDMA (verizon only, but Sprint uses CDMA as well)

    The only "workaround" would be to replace the cell radio (which would require replacing the entire inside of your phone I'm guessing)

    Your best bet is to sell it and try to buy a Verizon one.

    There seems to be general agreement that this phone will not work on Verizon. I appreciate the responses.

    It will not work. It is a GSM phone, Verizon is a CDMA carrier.

    Very surprised you want to do this. 99% of people are trying to do the exact opposite. Why would you want to go to Big Red? Stick with T-Mobile or AT&T (or an MVNO) and save yourself some money. The i9250 (GSM) Galaxy Nexus has bands for any GSM network in the US. Take a look at all of your offerings. You won't want to go with Verizon.

    Thanks for your responses. I have gifted this phone to another and am exploring their options. Your feedback has been very constructive, but the decision is not mine to make.
