Blackberry Torch Network Signaling - ATT to Verizon

Hello!

 

I'm trying to find out whether or not my AT&T Blackberry Tourch can be converted to be used on Verizon's Network?  I'm with the understanding that AT&T utilizes GSM Network Signaling and that Verizon utilizes CDMA Network Signaling?  I purchased my Blackberry phone when I was living around metro Atlanta, now that I'm in Illinois the signal I get from AT&T where I live is so poor I can call my cell phone and it won't even ring. In addition that many of my friends and family are on Verizon's network.

 

I'm with the impression that many if not all Cell Phones are set up for both GSM or CDMA depending on how their software is programmed in the Cell Phone. 

 

I've forwarded this information to a company that you can purchase "Unlock Codes" from and they weren't sure and indicated that I should contact the Phone Manufacturer.   I really don't want to spend the money to "Unlock" the phone if I can't move it to a Verizon's CDMA network.

 

Any information is greatly appreciated.

I think the current unlock rate is $6. However I was told you can't use an AT&T phone on VZW .
