    Like other people have done with different phones, if you get the SPC to unlock it you could probably activate it on VZW. The down side is you wouldn't have any web access or GIN, but just as a plain phone it would work.

    Verizon will activate any phone (long as it is not stolen) if it can do 800 MHz CDMA {Cellular} and 1900 MHz CDMA {PCS}, be able to set the PRL to Verizon's Network and wireless partners, and I think E911 ready also.
    If the phone has analog, GSM, iDEN, or anything you can think of, they will still service it as long as it meets the requirements above. They just won't sell you a phone that does not use BREW, or things that Verizon wireless does not use like JAVA.

    Yes it would need to be unlocked.

    I am not sure but you would probably have to do some heavy googleing to find out.

    PS: googleing- to use www.google.com to search the internet for information, answers to questions, etc.

    You would probably be able to use text messaging as long as you can edit the gateway (or whatever) that Verizons messages are routed through. I do not think you would be able to send pictures and I am not certain about web use either since Sprint uses Java and Verizon uses Brew. You might have limited or no functionality.
