right now i am on Verizon and have a blackberry storm with a verizon activated sim card. if i were to buy an iPhone 3G and unlock it using the yellowsn0w jailbreak, then insert my verizon sim card into the phone would it work? and is this even possible?

Verizon is CDMA and AT&T is GSM. Phones will not work on each others network.

VZW has a CDMA/GSM WorldPhone they sell for travel abroad which uses a SIM. As I recall, it doesn't use US GSM freqs, only those in teh rest of the world so it is CDMA in teh US and GSM in other Non-North American GSM countries.

If you have a verizon SIM (from their world phone) it should work. the question is why? VZW's charges are much higher than a local SIM; so you really gain nothing unless someone else is paying for the bills.
