No contract phones are cell phones that are not locked to any particular carrier, or in other words, unlocked. Verizon operates on CDMA technology, just like Sprint, so if you chose an unlocked CDMA compatible phone, you would have the choice of opting for either Verizon or Sprint as a carrier. But then again, many manufacturers like Apple and Samsung provide CDMA mobiles which are also capable of operating on the GSM network and support LTE as well. This means you have a CDMA phone that can also work on AT-T or T-Mobile networks or give you 4G internet.

This being said, the best no contract Verizon phones proffer pretty much all the benefits and feature options that smartphones could offer, from 8 megapixel cameras, 3.5" or larger screens and full HD display, to high end operating systems like Android 2.3, Android 4.0 and Apple iOS5 and speedy processors of 1.2 to 1.5 GHz. So, our listing of no contract Verizon phones displays a broad range of unlocked smartphones of several brands that typically support CDMA network.
