    Could one of you gurus put this in simple terms for me.

    Will I now be able to give my Samsung Phone model SGH-X427 to my son for use
    on a Verizon network?

    TIA!

    Not if it's a Cingular phone. No legalities involved, this is purely
    technical. You cannot use a GSM phone on a CDMA network, the
    technologies are incompatible.

    If your son was on T-Mobile, then the answer would probably be "yes".
    But you'd have to get it unlocked, first.
