    Yes, you can use an Alltel handset on Verizon's network if Verizon will activate it. You will need to reprogram the Slider with your MDN, MIN and home SID. You will also need to update the PRL to a Verizon PRL.

    Your MIN and you MDN is just your 10 digit phone number, the SID is the network you run on, which is unique to your area. The tech you talk to should be able to provide the SID for you, if not it is on the internet. The PRL may load after dialing *228, if the ESN is on their system you should be able to do it over the phone. If not you will have to go to the store and have them flash your phone with their software.

    Sorry about that...

    MDN- Mobile Directory Number, your phone number.

    MIN- Mobile Identity Number, could be the same as your number but it could be different. The MIN was instituted due to number portability.

    SID- System ID, the five-digit number assigned to your immediate home network.

    PRL- Preferred Roaming List, essentially a prioritized list of towers your phone can use.
